Next Spokes Ride

The next Spokes Ride will be on Sunday 2nd December 2018. Meet 10:00am outside Usher Hall, Lothian Road.

Destination Aberdour, Fife. Slightly hilly ride, with few inclines but not too steep. Distance will be around 60km (37 miles). Pub Lunch, so please use the Contact Form above,with a valid email address, to let me know you are coming along.

Forecast is dry, light cloud. Max Temp 10°C South Westerly Wind. Breezy. Chance of rain towards the end of the ride.

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.
