Midweek Cycle; Post work cycle; Links Woods Tyninghame...




Nights are slowly drawing out and signs of spring are evident in the woods, not long until the nettles and thistles appear along with long grass so good to go a cycle through the woods  while still able to easily...

The Block Trail this could be called with all the WW2 Coastal Crust defencive Anti Tank blocks here...




The last burst of sun before it clouded over from a lovely day of light...


A wee film riding through the woods,

Gullane Point cycle...


A few weeks ago i cycled out to Gullane Point a few days after a big fire had consumed a huge area of dunes on the Reserve,  it had rained the previous evening but the smell of burning was still strong as i returned along the dune tops to take some pics and film...












Looks like a war zone, the marram grass will recover quite quickly having happened in winter...



A rippled and wet ride to the sub wrecks so i would leave riding across to them until a better time when tides and winds make for a drier smoother crossing...

Post Work Cycle - The Eye of the Storm



A wild days weather, then things calmed down in the afternoon so  made the most of the lull as week forecast was stormy with weather alerts so out a wee cycle after work...




Not the beach this,  a field boundary with blown top soil sand...






Former WW2 Air Raid shelter...







The Right of Way track has been closed through the former New Mains farm buildings for a housing development,  the Rights of Way Society signs have been removed, no detour signed so made my own around the fields, probably something will be signed in time...
Anyways a nice we cycle after work and true to the forecast that night and next day got a bit wild as another storm passed over,  glad to get out when i could!...

Sunday Cycle at JMP...




A Sunday cycle around John Muir Park. I met Chris before midday and wrapped up in waterproofs as the morning saw heavy showers pass over leaving the local Lammermuir hills coated in light snow, the day would stay dry until nearly back at the car park but was baltic cold as we notched up 12 miles on sand along the flat beaches and woodland sandy single track ...

Some type of survival flotation device washed up...






`Bridge to Nowhere`...

Needs a high tide pic to fulfill the bridges local name...




Jake carried a stick most of the 12 miles!


Sand Moguls i call this where huge amounts of sand are moved by big swells and provide a good workout to transverse...

.303 bullet heads found in rabbit hole sand on Bullet Hill...



Chris had his stove for a coffee in the nearby WW2 army building...



Hedderwick Sands...



An ace 12 miles of coastal cycling, real soft in places, then as always ace woodland sandy single track...
