Day 6 – Rest day in Edinburgh

No ride today. We rested in Edinburgh, the capital city of Scotland. The pictures tell a thousand words. But in short we

  • Visited the Edinburgh castle
  • Spoke with Tim the Manager of the large Edinburgh Bike Co-op, and
  • Visited local cultural shops.

It was a wonderfully relaxing day, and our quads, hammies and gluts thanked us for the rest.

Best Western Kings Manor EdinburghA shout-out to Best Western Kings Manor in Edinburgh, especially the hotel manager James Brown, his family and his pup Zimzam. We stayed in the newest wing that was just “greened” to reduce carbon emissions. The pool & spa was our oasis after five days of hard riding. We watched the Euro Soccer Finals (congrats Spain!) in the bistro on the 50″ plasmas. We came as guests, left as friends.
