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.

Bicycle Bondage Part 2 West Linton

 

It couldn't happen two months in a row, but it did. Another stranded bicycle. And a premonition. Not only was I not there in July, I wasn't there in Aug, Sept and Oct too!!! What a beautiful day, extremely Warm. Unfortunately the downpour on Friday evening that we had up here meant very hilly rides were out of the question, so we went to West Linton.

Bicycle Bondage Part 1 Penicuik

 

What a day. Woke from a nightmare on the sofa in the front room at 4:30. The sun streaming in through the window. Had I missed the Spokes Ride? I must have because I'd been asleep for 45 minutes and Spokes Rides go on all day. Terrible nightmare though. Dreamt the forecast for the afternoon on the Spokes Ride was for horrible rainy windy weather.

Daffs the One trip to Aberdour

 

Did we have a good day or did we have a good day. Not a day to be part of the TBC (Turning Back Club to the newbies to this email). What a brilliant ride to Aberdour. Thanks to all who turned up, hope you enjoyed yourself. Enclosed highly compressed pictures of some part of the ride. Yes I am working on a picture bit for Snowcycle.
