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.

"Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things that you didn't do than by the ones you did do. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover." -- Mark Twain

Sorry for the delay, slight virus problem. Not a destructive virus, just an annoying one. No viruses were sent out by myself to any of you because the mail scanning was working. It was caused by a fault in Norton Anti-Virus, part of Norton Internet Security, caused by a virus that attacks popular virus checkers when surfing the web. I got rid of it by downloading a free virus checker.

 

The November ride consisted of coffee at the local coffe shop as teh westher forecast was quite horrendous. The December Spokes Ride went to East Lothian, a nice ride, wind assisted in part, out to East Lothian, sunny in the morning, but a wee bit cool. Around 12 people turned out. A nice short ride, we were home about 4 o’clock, some of us a bit sooner.

 

It was really nice to see faces of people who’ve not been on a ride for a few months. There were 19 people on the Spoke’s Sunday Ride to Linlithgow. Thanks to Dave for inviting us to his home in Linlithgow where we had our picnic lunch outside, and some of us raided the brambles after lunch.

 

Thanks to everyone who turned up today. There were three people who went home before lunch, 2 were not feeling well, and one person was a companion to someone who was not feeling well. I hope the rest of you enjoyed our trip to Carlops. Nicely timed so that we got to Fairmilehead just before 4 o’clock, just as it started raining.

 

Good turnout today, 15 people started out for Beecraigs Country Park in West Lothian. It was very nice to see you all, thanks very much for turning up. hope you all enjoyed the trip.
