Next Spokes Ride

The next Spokes Ride will be on Sunday 6th May 2018.

Forecast is dry, light cloud. Max Temp 14°C Westerly Wind.

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

Destination West Lothian. Mainly flat ride, with few inclines but not too many. Distance about 35 mi. Pub Lunch, so please use the Contact page to notify me.

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.

Before a Spokes Ride, give your bike a quick maintenance check, which will take about 1/2 hour. This is to ensure your bike is in relatively good condition, check that you have packed spares unique to your bike, including a spare inner tube, and lastly that your bike is clean(ish).

Even though you may use your every day, Spokes Rides are long enough to find any weakness in your bike. I have, in my time as leader of Spokes Rides, had to reassemble chains, reconnect mudguards and fix racks. In fact, apart from catastrophic failures, I can fix most problems on the bike enough to enable you to cycle home. This includes snapped rear derailleurs and buckled wheels.
