Location: Colinton, City of Edinburgh (Scotland, United Kingdom)

Back down to earth with a bump after yesterday's 'Made Explore for the first time in years and got 40+ favourites' excitement. Another day in which the weather was not playing ball. I set out on my bike in the hope that I might catch some snowscapes up in the Pentlands, but it was so cold and wet I never got that far. Stopped in the Colinton Dell tunnel to take a few pics in the dry. This one feels faintly spooky to me - something about the runner heading down the tunnel

Unfortunately, in the other direction you can use the toucan only from the "quality bike corridor" on Mayfield Road (follow the arrow onto the shared pavement before the stop line), the other arms have normal ASLs and you have to wait for the motor traffic green phase.Road environment:
