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.
