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.
