Run to the hills!


Francis and friends were doing a training loop on the Endurance horses in the Lammermuir hills so i tagged along on the Surly KramPug 29+,
We rode a loop from Aikengall east around to Oldhamstocks and up to Blackcastle Hill...



The start once offroad was a steep climb on cold less and i pushed a bit om the loose stones before onto the grass...


Blackcastle hill with it`s masts was at the end of the loop...


Mowgli full of beans and firing on all cylinders!...


Great gravel descent to Ferneylea farm...



Oldhamstocks village...


Up onto Blackcastle hill i took the road to the towers while the horses detoured a bit in the fields...


Having climbed up in a heavy shower, another loomed but blew past along the higher hills...


Levelling out on top of the hill...



Good views of the coastal plain while waiting on the horses...






The descent was fun as i switch backed down ahead of the horses...

I stuck the  Go Pro on the helmet for the descent, be a hoot to do this with a load of bikes! :)

Big grass half pipe!, should have filmed here but camera was back in bag, always a next time...


And back to the car park, this place has changed with the building of the second big wind farm up above, will go up there once building finished for a look about...


Happy horses...


And some mud to wash off once home...


More soon...
