Summer Evening beachride...



`Sea Potato` or `Sea Urchin`...





Post ride beers & pizza at coastkid chateau...

Been a while since i did a Tuesday 5pm film. Used to nearly always do mid week films on Tuesdays.
Dunno why but Tuesdays are always good evenings to do a beachride if you do not want to meet anyone.
We rode from Longniddry across Gosford Bay then forded the Peffer to ride across Aberlady Bay past the midget submarine wrecks then returned over the Nature Reserve  and met no one on the Reserve, the car park was empty.
I like that as i do not like to disturb people enjoying the reserve, We do as cyclists have a legal right to use the shared paths (responsibly) and i do not ride on the Reserve between the dunes and Bridge with groups and  i tend to avoid peak times like weekends mid day and holidays etc..
We will not be leading FatBike Tours through here, only along the low tide line from Gullane to visit the submarine wrecks then returning, this is something we have made clear in our Ethos. Live and let live -:)

Aberlady Bay Nature Reserve was the first Local Nature Reserve to be established in Britain (1952).
It is a special place for everyone to enjoy, from the visitors to the locals and for myself somewhere i spent a lot of my childhood with my dad when he was County Ranger...





Memorial to local writer & historian Nigel Tranter...
