20-Milers November ride this coming Saturday

We've got our November ride coming up on Saturday (12th). Alan will be leading us on an interesting route through the west of the city, heading out to Ratho. The total distance will be about 24 miles. There will be a couple of short steep hills, and a mile or two on a very rough track which might also be muddy. But apart from that there should be no particular difficulties.

Lunch stop

Our lunch stop will be at the Edinburgh International Climbing Arena. Although there is a cafe there, we advise you to bring a packed lunch. That's because, on our recent visits, the service at the cafe has been very slow, so you could well spend most of the lunch break in the queue. But don't worry: you won't need to picnic in the open air. There is plenty of indoor seating, including an area overlooking the spectacular 30-metre climbing wall (which claims to be the largest of its kind in the world). There are also vending machines serving hot drinks.


As always, we will meet at the north end of Middle Meadow Walk in time for a 10:30 departure. The ride should end well before dark, but it would be advisable to bring lights in case of delay. The ride is, of course, free and open to all. As you know, we don't have a booking system and there is no need to reply to this post.

December rides

Looking ahead, we will once again be organising a short ride for Christmas morning (25 December). This time it will be a joint venture with our friends at EasyCycle. I'll post details once these have been decided, so for now just note the date. This ride will of course be in addition to our normal monthly run, which will be on the 10 December.
