So I had a few days before term 2 starts and was able to arrange a little tour to visit old friends in north-east Fife.
On Thursday I cycled from Edinburgh to Crail. Lev was carrying 2 full panniers – spare clothing and waterproofs, MacBook Air, various chargers, sandals, Marianne the cuddly pig, various unguents, etc – and so I wasn’t fast. A bumpy ramp on the Fife end of the Forth road bridge affected Lev’s recently reset brakes so that I was pushing against resistance for the next 30 miles.
I remember getting to the B9131/B9171 crossroads and thinking ‘surely there can’t be more of the East Neuk – another 7 miles to Crail? Aarrgghh!’
There then followed a great evening at Crail folk club, followed by lots of catching up with an old friend and her new man! I promise not to leave it so long in future.

After an all-to-short few hours with friends in the Whey Pat, it was time to head back to my beloved in Edinburgh. The cycle to Leuchars gave rise to this rant.
Here’s to doing this again, with less luggage and more time seeing folk, in February or March!
