Yesterday I had a nice ride around the Traquair XC route at Innerleithen. It’s a great track (red run with black sections, 19km long) with plenty of up and exciting downhill. There were some rollercoaster sections, where the up-and-down must have been 15 feet.
Once you’re out there, the route choice is limited, which means it was a lot quieter than Glentress. I’ll defintiely be back there.
There’s more pictures over here.
My parents went to the Outer Hebrides way back at the start of the year and got some incredible photos.
As the nights draw in, it’s lovely to take a look and remember what sunshine looks like and how great the scenery in Scotland can be. Here’s the full set.
My t-shirt has a picture of a vinyl record on it. It was an amusing discussion with my seven year old Godson and his little brother trying to tell them what a record actually is; “like a world record?” was their only reply… Their dad finally came up with “like a big CD made from black plastic”. We left it at that, and went back to playing Mario Kart. Kids, eh. 😉
