Tag: Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative

Had my newest bike for a whole year!

Can’t believe it was a year ago today, that I got the Specialized Crosstrail Sport Disc ’16 from Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative. Of course, I need to thank my Mum once again for getting it for me! Since getting him, he’s done 4,467.8 miles! Not been serviced once in that time! Which I do really need to change!

I will leave you with some photos of him! πŸ™‚

So happy my new bike got delivered today from Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative. It set me back Β£550. The only reason I got it, was since my Mum give myself and my bothers Β£1,000 each, for her 70th Birthday! Think I’ve got the worlds best MUM!!! πŸ˜€

I’ve still to give it a test ride. I really wanted to give it a go today, but trying to get over a bad cold/flu bug thinly!

Of course the big question is, do I remove the bell??

I have just gone and ordered myself a new bike from the Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative. It’s set me back Β£549.99, so thank god for credit cards. Which means to say it off, I do at least 9 days of teaching First Aid Courses and not the spend the money on anything else! As long, as I have paid at least half of it off before going End to End cycle in August I will be happy. I can’t wait till I get it, all going well I will have it, before the end of next week. The bike I have gone for is the Marin Muirwoods 29ER ’09.

Tuesday – 23rd June 2009

Today I got up at 6:00am. So that I would have time, to get showed, have some breakfast. Before Alex come around to give us both a lift to train station in Grantham to get the 7:25am National Express East Coast service to Edinburgh Waverley. Oh I guess, I should say why we went to Edinburgh, that’s because we were teaching First Aid Course, for Pizza Hut. The train got us into Edinburgh 11:09am, but the course did not start till 2pm. So we dropped the gear off at the Pizza Hut. Then went for a nice walk around Edinburgh. The weather was great, the best weather I have ever been to Edinburgh in. I think, it at least 24C if not hotter.

So to kill the 3 hours we had before the course started, we went looking for the Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative. I have got many things from them before, but only on-line. It’s the first time that I have been into their shop. I could not believe how big it was. Oh and thanks to Alex I have made up my mind, what new bike I am going to get for doing the End to End cycle. I am going to get a Marin Muirwoods 29ER ’09. It will need to wait, till I have paid off the car road TAX that is on my credit card.

Once done looking at all the great stuff at the Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Operative. It was back out into the sun to walk back to the Pizza Hut, to get some food. Then start the course, the course had just 7 people on it. I am glad it did not have any more. The room we were in, did not have any air-con, it was HOT to say the least!!! Everyone said the course was very good. Only bad comments we got was how hot the room was.

Once the course was done, it was back to the Edinburgh Waverley, to get the 7pm National Express East Coast service back to Grantham. I was so glad when I was back home and in bed.
