Next Spokes Ride

Sunday 1st December 2019. Meet at 10:00 outside the Usher Hall, Lothian Rd.

Destination West Lothian. Slightly hilly ride, with few inclines but not too steep. Cycle path out of Edinburgh then mostly roads. Distance will be around 64km (40 miles).

Lunch at a café so bring money. Alternatively bring a picnic lunch, then join the rest for coffee.

Forecast is dry and sunny, cool. Max Temp 4°C Westerly Wind.

Please check your bike before the ride, i.e. tyre pressure, chain and brakes. Bring some money for emergencies and possible café stops and/or post ride refreshments. Don't forget snacks to keep your energy levels up and a drink to consume en-route.

Don't forget to bring a small toolkit to fit your bike and a spare inner tube in case you get a puncture. It is much easier to replace the tube than to repair a tube, especially if you have a slow puncture.

Welcome to SnowCycle

Me in the Simpsons?"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover."

Welcome to SnowCycle, a website based on cycling and skiing.

This website has some reports and photographs from the Spokes Sunday Bike Rides that I lead. If you're interested in coming along, we meet on the 1st Sunday of the Month at the Usher Hall, Lothian Road at 10am. If you live in Edinburgh, and want to come along (there's no joining fee!!!!), let me know by using the contact form.

Spokes is the Lothian Cycle Campaign, and operates in the Council areas of Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian. See Spokes for more info.

Some old stuff, especially photographs, can be seen at http://www.snowcycle.biz/ or http://www.snowcycle.org.uk/. All this stuff is being moved in to the one website.

I have also added some details of winter holidays I have made, as well as adding photos from these trips.

Warm Regards.
