Vogrie Country Park
Leaving from Charwood Grill we will head across the Braid Hills to Lasswade Road where we will join the cycle path to Millerhill then make our way to Whitecraig. From here we skirt past Cousland to Whitehill before making our way to Vogrie Country Park where there is a café or tables if you want to brave a picnic lunch. (20 miles)
The afternoon sees us pass Borthwick Castle then head towards Temple and Carrington. The final stretch goes up the hill at Auchendinny then back to our start point in Fairmilehead. (total 40 miles)
Sunday’s weather currently shows sunny intervals cold and a bit breezy.
Riding in a group requires consideration for others in the group and the leader and back marker. Our riding guidelines are essential reading prior to coming out on the ride to ensure safety for yourself and the other riders. https://www.cyclinguk.org/group/page/guidelines-safe-riding
Please make sure your bike is roadworthy and that you have 2 spare inner tubes and basic tools to change an inner tube. You will need to have water, a picnic or money for tea/coffee/lunch or and a bike lock. Remember you are riding at your own risk and whilst the group will always try to help out as best as possible, you are responsible for looking after yourself and getting yourself home.
Looking forward to seeing you on Sunday.
Charnwood Restaurant Farmilehead. 47 Buckstone Terrace.
