Got a day off today and in an unbelievable turn of events it's decent weather!!

Think I'm going to have a nice big late breakfast and head up to the Pentlands for a couple of hours and check my fitness levels and see how lost I can get.

Any suggestions for a not too hard ride? I've done the loop starting from the Flotterstone Inn car park before but fancy a wee change.

climb to the top of the highest hill you can see from your start point
then look for singletrack routes back down

Cheers Mikee, that's the kind of advice money can't buy.

Only years of experience.


Many years :lol:
