Next Spokes Ride

Sunday 3rd July 2022. Meet at 10:00 outside the Usher Hall, Lothian Rd.

Destination to be decided on Wednesday. Distance will be around 70km (42 miles). Lunch in a café.
Please check your bike before the ride, i.e. tyre pressure, chain and brakes. Bring some money for emergencies and 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.

Welcome to SnowCycle, a website for cycling and skiing, since 1993.

This website has some reports and photographs from the Spokes Sunday Bike Rides that I lead. If you're interested in coming along, we meet on the 1st Sunday of the Month at the Usher Hall, Lothian Road at 10am. Spokes Rides are free to everyone. If you live in, or are visiting, Edinburgh, and want to come along (there's no joining fee!!!!), let me know using the Contact link at the top of this page.

Spokes is the Lothian Cycle Campaign, the main efforts and activities are in the council areas of Edinburgh, East Lothian, Midlothian and West Lothian.See Spokes for more info. Spokes works with Councils and other Cycling Organisations, such as Sustrans, Cycling Scotland and the CTC, to encourage cycling not only for health and exercise, but also as a fun and environmentally friendly method of travel.

I am always working on this website, and some old reports and photos can be seen at or

Warm Regards.

Visit for handmade cards, notebooks and earrings.
