5 riders took to Crammond via School Brae and then on to Starbank, taking the paths to Newhaven. Experimentally riding Ocean Drive to Ocean terminal - very different at night, Unlit and a whole flitting family seemed to concealed in dark Ninja suits. back on the WOL path, after re-navigating at Teuchters for a barricaded bridge. Uneventful whizz home and a cheery libation then the Fountain bar.  Cheers!
