Old haunts, old trails, old Pugsley...

Nice to revisit old haunts, where you grew up, local woods you first cycled through, and places for me me i first rode my Surly Pugsley fatbike.
Today i rode to Haddington by road, not very exciting on a fatbike!, also into a 20 mph wind, feeling a bit tired from daily cycling, holiday diet of pizza etc, and er, a few ciders last night.
Was overheating by the time i got on to the Haddington to Longniddry Railway walk. Quick stop for some layer removals now out of the wind, then my legs loosened on the easy slightly down hill 4 miles to Longniddry...



Someone once threw an apple core away...


Today it bears it`s own fruit...


Nice skies today...



Off of the Railway walk and a couple of old roads down to Longniddry, lunch at Mums today!...







Fed and watered it was along to The Dean, the burn is dry this now. Need to bring the big Moonlander along and film riding down it!...



Along some of the John Muir Way...




Then down through the woods of Gosford to Aberlady...








Here is some Go Pro helmet mount film i shot along some of the John Muir Way, and in Gosford woods...

Craigielaw, where we grew up...


Aberlady, Sea Green...


And across to the Reserve...


Sunset soon...








Hundreds of thousands of concrete blocks once lined our shore lines-part of the coastal crust built from 1939...

Thanks to the Victory of The Battle of Britain Operation Sea Lion was abandoned and they were never put to the test. Monuments today to darker days...









Up to the Millennium Cairn for  sunset...




With the light fading and temperatures dropping it was a tail wind assisted 6 mile big ring road blast home...



Home as the last glow of the day fades... tomorrow is another day, another ride...
