The Innerleithen loop via Gypsy Glen and Glentress

The five of us not long after we'd started (still feeling fresh!)

High point of the track over to Gypsy Glen, time for some refreshments.

Young Marc shows us how to descend a flight of steps in Peebles (and survive)

Getting our breath back after the mad descent down from the mast on the Glentress Black.

The old abandoned reservoir that at one time supplied water for a textile mill in the valley below.

A trip today that just failed to make epic status, but only just, that started and finished in Innerleithen but took in Traquair, Gypsy Glen, Peebles and Glentress with the fast and furious descent from the mast at the top of Glenterss Black followed by the climb again up through Caberstone Forest and the final descent back down to Innerleithen. Simon who pedalled with us is more into downhill and suffered on some of the climbs to the extent that he posted on Strava that climbing stairs after he got home was a no brainer! It's always good to see someone suffer when you feel not too bad yourself!!
