Mud free 15 mile xc loop



High pressure and forecasts of bad weather on the way so out for a cycle with friend Craig,
a local loop for me, a 15 mile `mud free` loop around Tyninghame, ideal for 29+ bikes...

Return to Goswick beach...



2 days after the 30 mile cycle out to Holy Island in that crazy wind Chris and i returned to finish the ride that we cut short with daylight fading and rode through the dunes at Goswick...

Signs of Industry long gone...



Quite a view up on the dunes as we rode round to the WW2 observation town built on top of a machine gun pill box....






Through the dunes following the Anti Tank defences before they dissapeared into the sand

A nice couple of hours on a lovely bit of coast,

A cycle out to Holy Island...



Down to Spital at Berwick Upon Tweed with friend Chris for a cycle out to Holy Island, the forecast was crazy strenght winds but the tides were right and it was dry so we went for it!


Sands were dancing as we flew down the beach with the tailwind...






We were soon over the tidal causeway and took the road onto the island...
