Anyone for a swim?
As you can see from the images HERE, Cramond is amazing and has a stunning beach, and only five miles from the centre of Edinburgh. We hope it’s a beautiful summer’s morning and that we get treated to a stunning sunrise over the Firth of Forth, on a warm and sunny morning.
The aim would be to congregate the grassy knoll at the end of the promenade click HERE , where there is plenty of room for bikes and for people to chill out on the grass or adjacent beach. It’s about 200m away from some of the residential properties further along at the harbour, which should help keep disturbance to a minimum. There is plenty of parking behind the Cramond Inn pub if people are getting picked up, and it’s about 20 minutes on the bike into central Edinburgh for those that need a train station.
Fresh Start a local Edinburgh charity that helps homeless people settle into their new homes have very kindly offered to help out. They will be providing a bacon roll, cup of tea or coffee and a banana all for £5.00 from 3am until 6am. This will be available from Cramond Kirk Hall and will be sign posted. It is only 500m from Cramond sea front and we think £5.00 is a bargain for all that considering they are getting up so early to cater for hungry cyclists and remember 100% of the profit will go to helping the amazing work that they do. They raised over £1000 in 2015.
As with Dunwich Dynamo, there’ll be no sponsors goody bag or medal or any other tat just the satisfaction of having done something a bit different with like-minded folk.
We hope that you’ll have enjoyed it, and be up for it in 2017!
