Meet 10:00am at on Lothian Road outside the Usher Hall.

Destination Linlithgow, West Lothian. Slightly hilly ride, with few inclines but not too steep. Distance about 45 mi. Picnic Lunch, so please a packed lunch with you. Tea / coffee provided at the lunch spot, so RSVP to register your interest through the Contacts page.

This ride will be visiting one of the Open Gardens in Linlithgow, the lunch time stop. If you wish to visit the rest gardens, a guide, costing £5 is also available. This will allow you to visit to all the other gardens open to the public on Sunday. Please RSVP through the Contacts page. (Please remember to bring £5 with you, and you can pick up the guide at the lunch time stop)

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.
