Next Spokes Ride

The next Spokes Ride will be on Sunday 5th May 2019. Meet 10:00am outside Usher Hall, Lothian Road.

Destination East Lothian. Slightly hilly ride, with few inclines but not too steep. Distance will be around 64km (40 miles). 

Forecast is light rain / drizzle in the morning, dry in the afternoon. Max Temp 9°C Westerly Wind. Breezy.

Please check your bike before the ride, i.e. tyre pressure, chain and brakes. Bring some money for lunch, 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.

You can't have missed the excellent prizes on offer for Sunday's spokes ride to Linlithgow. Remember there's also a 'booby' prize as well. Still laid up becaus eI broke my leg, the September 2003 Spokes Ride was a Treasure Hunt.

Cyclists were supplied with a map and some pretty good poetry ( I have to say that otherwise the poet will hit me!!!!). Hidden in the poetry were 10 clues to solve, plus a tiebreaker.The time you reach Dave's house will be entered on to the sheet for a tiebeaker. The one with most correct answers and the most appropriate time, based on a Scottish Historical event (this is historical Linlithgow after all) will win the tops prize. Getting to Linlithgow before I get there on the train may count against you.

The Treasue Hunt clues will be available in the downloads section if you missed this Spokes Ride.

One advantage of winning the camera is that if my leg isn't better by October, you could lead the October Ride and supply me with pictures.
