Next Spokes Ride

The next Spokes Ride will be on Sunday 3rd September 2017. Meet 10:00am at on Lothian Road outside the Usher Hall.

Destination Midlothian. Slightly hilly ride. Pub Lunch, and a quick ride home to avoid being too long in the afternoon rain.

Please check your bike before the ride, i.e. tyre pressure, chain and brakes. Bring some money for lunch, emergencies and possible café stops 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.

We show the way, help with mechanical malfunctions, wait for the less speedy and try to ensure all have a wonderful time! Cycle carefully and considerately. You are entirely responsible for your own safety.

It is recommended that you bring a spare (intact!!) inner tube and basic toolkit (tyre levers, multi tool puncture repair kit, pump).  It is also recommended that you carry out some basic maintenance on your bike the day before the ride. An example, please see this article for more information: Pre Ride Bike Maintenance
