Cycling day 44: Freuchie to Musselburgh
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.
