episode 149: Explore | Tour d'Écosse stage 7: Strathclyde Country Park – Leith


Stage seven of the Tour d’Écosse is as close to the traditional transitional stage as it’s possible to get. The route avoids the Bathgate Alps and takes the low route from Glasgow to Edinburgh.

In Lionel and Simon’s defence they have to go via Livingston Football Club’s Tony Macaroni Arena. It’s a beautiful, quiet ride offering time for reflection and reminiscence before they reach the outskirts of the Scottish capital, Edinburgh.

Simon visits the Caledonian Brewery before they reach the home of Heart of Midlothian and then it’s on to Hibernian and a glimpse of some Sunshine on Leith.
