October ride this coming Saturday

 We've got our next ride coming up on Saturday (9 October). I hope you will be able to join us.

For this ride, Yaz will be charge. She will be leading us on a scenic circuit via Cramond Brig and the Dalmeny Estate, returning by way of Dalmeny Village and NCN 1. The total distance will be about 22 miles. Most of the route will be on quiet roads and well-surfaced paths, but there will also be a couple of rough paths, as well as two places where we will need to dismount and push because of road works. There will be just a few hills, none of them particularly difficult.

Lunch arrangements

Our lunch stop will be in the shadow of the Forth Bridge, at Hawes. There are two sit-in restaurants there (the Hawes Inn and the Three Bridges), but because of Covid, they are both operating with restricted access. When we went there for a recce recently, people were queuing up to go in. To avoid a long wait, please consider bringing a packed lunch instead.

There is also a snack bar which does take-away sandwiches and hot drinks. There are seats overlooking the Forth where you can eat your lunch, and public toilets nearby.

Time and place

We will meet at our usual spot at the north end of Middle Meadow Walk, in time for a 10:30 departure. We will aim to be back at the Meadows around mid-afternoon. The ride is free, of course, and you are welcome to bring your friends. We don't operate a booking system, so just turn up on the day.
