Pedal for Scotland
From early Sunday morning until late in the afternoon, many thousands of cyclists pedal their way through Linlithgow again, en route from Glasgow to Edinburgh on the annual “freshnlo” event. Food, drink and, most importantly, some fine music awaits them on The Peel below Linlithgow Palace at the Low Port Centre end. Again KILTER will get tired legs dancing and ready for more pedalling.
