Highland Fling
« on: June 12, 2018, 12:02:58 pm »

This is not a ride report but rather a sharing of photo's as I receive them.
My daughter is on a six day ride through Scotland, her first solo.
Hopefully will be of interest to some.

Day1. Edinburgh to Queens Ferry

Thanks for an interesting thread. Looks like the Brit weather is being kind for a change.

Speaking of the pants though, and the white takkies, I saw a TV programme a while ago in which some British bike cops pulled over a couple of bikers and gave them hell about not wearing full ATGATT and hi viz vests. Got me fuming inside about freedom, nanny state and all that stuff, and made me happy to be a South African.  :biggrin:
