  • 13 riders on a sunny day took the Innocent down to Bruntstane Rd which led us to Portbello.
  • Eastwards to Musselburgh and F|isherrow then Prestonpans
  • Southwards past the School, Rail station and Johnnie Cope Road
  • Now the interesting bit. We started to climb Birtley Brae. (pronounced birley, though it didn't spin much).
  • Birtley starts as an easy climb and gets steeper as it ascends. The lead had an interesting trick of riding faster as the gradient increased.
  • At the top lay Fa'side castle, followed by a precipitous drop to the A1 near Wallyford.
  • A quick scoot to the path behind Musselburgh Golf course
  • Return via the well ridden Innocent to the Meadows,
  • And a fine pint in the 'Apothecary', a pub in Lister Square behind Middle Meadow Walk.
