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.

November one - leg trip to Mid Calder

 

What a beautiful day for a Spokes Ride, we started from the Usher Hall at 10:17 am and departed for Mid Calder. A bit breezy, but it was a balmy 12 deg Celsius, and lots of sunshine. 21 people turned up. Yup I’m back on the bike (don’t all moan at once please!!!!), firing on one leg though. Makes acceleration a bit interesting.

The Blackness Trip

 
The ride of 15 went to Blackness via Craigie - 1 puncture sustained by the farm, S.Queensferry, Hopetoun House, a carry over the gate to get out to Abercorn where churchyard was explored and mausoleum discovered whilst searching for the path to Blackness.  We opted instead for the road and most lunched on the beach - the others relying on flapjacks from the shop as the inn closed in early July.

Mark's Gullane for it

 

Well, now for Sunday's ride. We had a pleasant spin over the Meadows, down the Innocent path, through Niddrie and then Mucklets Lane and along Pinkie Road before hitting the "Coastal Trail" to Gullane Beach. Here the 13 of us partook in picnics, paddling in the water which became pleasant once all feeling had ceased and Frisbee for the more energetic. Sadly, no one remembered their bucket and spade.
