Upcoming rides

Sunday 25th September : EasyCycle Short Ride
A short informal ride of about 12 miles, which will be taken at a gentle pace. These rides are especially suitable for less experienced adult riders and those who haven't cycled for a while (16- and 17-year olds are also welcome if accompanied by a responsible adult, but no under-16s please). Today's route will take in Stockbridge, Dean Village and Inverleith, with a couple of short sight-seeing stops along the way. The route will mainly be on bike paths and quiet roads, and will include just one or two moderate hills. There will be a café stop at lunchtime, or bring a picnic if you prefer. The ride should end about 3 pm. Meet: 10.30, outside the Coffee Angel, Brandon Terrace, Canonmills. Cost and booking: Free. No need to book; just turn up. Further information: Logan Strang (0131 346 7786, GLS@seonamara.demon.co.uk).

Saturday 8th October : 20-Milers
We have our usual ride this Saturday (8th October). Chris Pearson will be leading us on what looks like a splendid route, taking in three historic houses, some superb views, and a historic pub for lunch.
We'll be heading east by way of Holyrood Park, Duddingston House, the newly paved Brunstane Burn path and Newhailes House, then on past Musselburgh station and a climb up to Fala Castle. Although this is steep, it is not too long, and the views from the top are excellent. We'll then have a nice freewheel down into Prestonpans for lunch at the Gothenburgh. For those who prefer to bring their own food, there are some nice picnic spots overlooking the firth.
In the afternoon, we'll have a pleasant ride along the coastal path back into Musselburgh. Depending on the weather and how we feel, we'll then either head straight back along NCN 1, or take a more interesting route through Portobello, Figgate Park and Holyrood Park. The total distance will be 22 to 25 miles, depending on which of these options we take.
Meet: 10.30, at the north end of Middle Meadow Walk (junction of Lauriston Place) . Cost and booking: Free; just turn up. Further information: Mike Lewis (0131 343 2520) or Livia Dyckhoff (0131 554 0577), or email 20milers@gmail.com
