A while ago I signed up for Bike&Go, a scheme which allows you to rent bikes outside train stations. On my first trip, we cycled the short distance to The Milk Barn, a local dairy where you can buy homemade ice cream. On my second trip, we’d planned to go to Linlithgow, a town about… Continue reading I made it to Linlithgow!
