Five of us out this forenoon, with Kathy and Graeme primarily going for some open water swimming practice at Threipmuir and Kathy's son Matt out for his first ride in the Pentlands aboard one of my bikes.
Matt gets pictured on the throne after riding up the seven steps for the first time to the top of Maidens Cleugh.
Kathy and Graeme going up the valley from the Howe.
The weather's improved, but don't get too carried away it'll probably not last very long! However we've taken advantage of this change to do a bit of Pentland biking today with Kathy, Graeme and Kathy's son Matt who's a top Scottish swimmer for his age but who was keen to try a bit of mountain biking. The most he'd done before was just over 5 miles in one go so today Clive and I extended that to 27.5 miles! The last news I had from Kathy was that he'd arrived home and fallen asleep! Hopefully he'll waken up in time for his next early morning swim training session!!
