    Sometimes you just have to get the work done. Hopefully it won't be forever though.

    I can confirm that I met @Pat "5mph" at the Let's Ride event so she obviously managed to make the most of her sleeping time. ^_^

    @Slick find yourself and the Mrs here
    I ended up with 4 laps, met a few friends here and there, as you do ... took some more pictures :whistle:
    Started spitting rain when I left, at the back of one, but came to nothing.
    Great morning out, glad I left the bed :laugh:

    Great pictures Pat. I just did the 4 laps myself before venturing into the People's Palace to see the big banana feet. ^_^
    It was a bit of a last minute thing to turn up this morning. Glad I did, really enjoyed being around the city centre without worrying someone was trying to kill me. :laugh:

    I wish they would copy Edinburgh and do it on a regular basis.

    Thinking about it. Mrs Slick fancies it but I just don't fancy the bus back and she won't cycle back. I was thinking about spending the night in Edinburgh if we can find a cycle friendly hotel and getting the train back next day.

    Tempted. It's the last ever one. I don't much want to do it in my current state though.

    Also, where's that @Slick at, I have a bone to pick with him regarding Glen Fruin :boxing::cry:

    I didn't plan on doing it, but another event I was involved in planning decided to just tag on to this instead.
    So I was persuaded to sign up with their group.
    Hoping to cycle back as well. Just not sure of a route yet.

    Take the train back, it's surprisingly empty on a Sunday around 3pm.
    You'll manage the 50 miler no problems!
    I've done the old route twice with the event, twice by myself.
    Cheaper when I went myself ^_^

    I always imagined that the train would be full of cyclists trying to get back. I think I will try the train Pat, thanks. :thumbsup:

    This was my experience last time. Big queue at Haymarket.

    Dunno, with the bike, I've always boarded at Waverly with no problems.
    Of course, I was well outside rush hour during the week or shops closing time at the weekend.
    I did not hang about after finishing.
    On the by, yesterday evening two of my pals got stranded in Edinburgh (no bikes): all trains were cancelled for some reason.
    I don't recommend the bike bus back, did this one year, too much waiting about.

    I've never had an issue getting a train back from Edinburgh normally but we were quite late finishing PfS last time and I definitely remember waiting for at least a couple of hours because each train could only take a few riders and bikes. I suppose if you get there early enough you can avoid the majority of the queue.
