Cycling Canterbury-Dover-Land's End-John O'Groats-Canterbury in aid of the British Heart Foundation
Cycling day 44: Freuchie to Musselburgh
Posted On 2009-Aug-07
Today’s cycling followed mainly quiet roads before crossing the Forth Road Bridge and not long afterwards through Edinburgh. On the way into Edinburgh I met another cyclist and we chatted for several miles. We followed NCR1, but near the centre of Edinburgh I took the opportunity to divert off onto NCR75 both towards the Scottish Executive. When following NCR75 the other way (towards the Union Canal) I managed to unexpectedly meet some friends that I was going to be meeting in the evening. So we chatted for a bit before agreeing a plan for the evening. I then continued along beside the Union Canal for a bit before returning to NCR1.
There were two tunnels today. One on NCR75, near the Union Canal, and the other on NCR1 on the way out of Edinburgh. Both were pretty lengthy and great experiences.
