Saturday night 26 miler in the Pentlands

We started at 5.45 pm and managed to get the first hour in before we needed lights. The photo was taken just down from the underground earth house built around 200AD, I'll bet the occupants then never had mountain bikers puffing their way up the climb at the side of their residence. Conditions tonight were dry overhead but muddy on the tracks, so no clear rounds tonight! The final descent from the top of the hill above Balerno down to Flotterstone was fast and furious and made up for all the climbing that went before.
That's 75 off road miles I've managed this week, I'll have to increase this if I hope to reach my annual goal of 4000 miles by the end of April.
