4th Evening Ride - Musselburgh - out by Holyrood Park, Willowbrae and Porty prom, back via NCN1. 


Steep bit up to Willowbrae, bit of main road from Joppa to Fisherrow. Meadows-Innocent route shut for roadworks so that was on road.

Ten riders this evening!  That's the most this year so far, and the more impressive since it was cold.  That might surprise folk given our current hot sunny weather, and in fact the forecast was 15degC. Nontheless, a cold Easterly wind took all the heat from the sun and it felt baltic. Anyway, 10 riders is great, and some new faces too. 


We rode a diversion to get to Holyrood park (Dynamic Earth section) then a partial climb toward Arthur's Seat, where we exited through a wee gate into Willowbrae and then on to Mountcastle. Here we went though a narrow alley, which looks like we sneakd thourgh somene's garden but it was a public path honest guv. That took us to Fishwives causeway and a lights assisted crossing of the otherwise hellish Sir Harry Hauder road, into Portobello. Whizzing past the old bottle kilns, we rolled carefully along the prom, relatively quiet owing to the coldness of the heatwave, on to Musselburgh and a brief stop at Fisherrow Harbour. 


Ever onwards, we retured via the path along the river Esk which bends behind the Musselburgh golf course,  leaving the Esk at Monktonhall took us past Queen Margaret Uni and then back by the very familiar Innocent railway path. On return to the meadows, the leader closed the ride,  and almost immediately we dicovered that we all has a terrible thirst and adjourned to the Doctors.
