Barrie and I had to do a fairish bit of climbing at Glentress to find the snow, and to be fair it wasn't exactly deep! But it did qualify as the first snow of 2018/2019 winter and still in October at that, where's all these global warming screamers when this happens, they're strangely silent!
It was however a cracking day to be out on the bike even if it was sub zero most of the time.
Dougie took this photo of me on Saturday morning at more or less the highest point of the Kirk Road over the Pentlands, another sub zero morning though there was no snow to be found only the occasional icy patch.
Apparently there's going to be a bit of tree planting taking place in the Pentland Hills and to that end fences to discourage the deer from eating all the young trees have been erected. these are the gates that have been put in place on the paths, how long till some crafty super intelligent deer discovers how to open them?
And finally, our usual Wednesday night bike ride, now totally from start to finish in the dark, here's a non deer resistant gate getting crossed, don't know how I'm going to get an ebike lugged over here!
