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.

Brilliant Ride to Peebles

 

A breezy ride to Peebles, one of the longest rides, but absolutely fantastic. Well done to everyone who took part, safe in the knowledge that we only visit Peebles occasionally. Hope you are feeling fine this morning. Photographs showing the nine people who did the whole trip are in Photo Gallery.

Soggy trip to Penicuik

 

 have already planned the July ride ;-), no rain this time. 11 people braved the weather ("Fools!" I can hear Neil say) when we went to Penicuik on the May ride. Not our original destination, but an April shower decided that it liked May better!!! The rainfall radar shown after the event (heading north after giving us a soaking. It must have moved fast because it looks pretty big on the radar!!!! So a wetsuit would have been more appropriate gear than cycle shorts. Our original destination was Carlops!

Snowy trip to Mid Calder

 

Hope those of you who joined us for the Spokes Ride enjoyed the route we took. A lovely day starting cold at 2degC from the Usher Hall, 13 people went to Mid Calder. The trip back was eventful, our route dictated by the depth of snow.

January Ride 1 month late to Leadburn

 

Frustratingly, the January ride involved a ride to my house for Mince Pies and coffee, due to seasonal weather. We had a lovely Spokes Ride in lovely Scottish Winter weather (yes, we do get good weather now and again!!). Thanks you to all who attended to make this a lovely friendly ride to Leadburn Inn. Special thanks to two people in helping me replace the inner tube on the back wheel after a puncture on the way home. Replacing the tube wasn’t timed, but I was told later that it was under four minutes, so not quite Formula 1 standards just yet then!!!!!
