Next Spokes Ride

Sunday 2nd February 2020. Meet at 10:00 outside the Usher Hall, Lothian Rd if it is dry.

Destination close to Edinburgh. Slightly hilly ride, with few inclines but not too steep. Cycle path out of Edinburgh then mostly roads. Distance will be around 32km (20 miles), further if it stays dry.

Forecast is damp and cool. Max Temp 4°C Southerly Wind. Given the weather forecast, I may run a short Spokes Ride on Sunday morning if it is dry. Currently the forecast for the afternoon is not very pleasant, so it would be around 20 miles or so. If the forecast is wrong, then I can extend the ride, alter it a bit, so that we are just left with a very short ride back in to Edinburgh.

If it is raining on Sunday morning, there is unlikely to be a Spokes Ride. So we could just meet for coffee at the usual coffee chain shop (Caffé Nero) on Lothian Rd.
 
Please check your bike before the ride, i.e. tyre pressure, chain and brakes. Bring some money for 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.

The last Spokes Ride of 2002 took place today, 9 people turning up, despite the lousy weather at 8:30. Raining until we got to Riccarton campus, then blue sky. A bit breezy and a cool 7O Celsius, but Long Dalmahoy Road was not as difficult as it can be at times. The Off Road bits of Route 75 down to, and through, Almondell and Calder Wood Country Park were a bit slippery and muddy.

 

Thanks to all who turned up on Sunday, we went to Aberdour in Fife in absolutely glorious - for November - weather. Not a cloud most of the time only a few spots of rain in Aberdour & no wind that mattered. Leaves on the trees were a bright yellow and red. A lovelyday to be out on the bike.
