Next Spokes Ride

The next Spokes Ride will be on Sunday 1st July 2018.

Forecast is dry, light cloud. Max Temp 21°C NE Wind. (Bring sunscreen)

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.

Welcome to SnowCycle, a website for cycling and skiing, since 1993.

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. Spokes Rides are free to everyone. If you live in, or are visiting, Edinburgh, and want to come along (there's no joining fee!!!!), let me know using the Contact link at the top of this page.

Spokes is the Lothian Cycle Campaign, the main efforts and activities are in the council areas of Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian.See Spokes for more info. Spokes works with Councils and other Cycling Organisations, such as Sustrans, Cycling Scotland and the CTC, to encourage cycling not only for health and exercise, but also as a fun and environmentally friendly method of travel.

I am always working on this website, and some old reports and photos can be seen at http://www.snowcycle.biz/ or http://www.snowcycle.org.uk/

Warm Regards.
