West and North Edinburgh

Club Ride
Description 

 

Happy New Year to One and All,

For the first Sunday ride of the New Year we will stay close to Edinburgh.

We meet at Redhall Park at 0950am for a 1000am depart. Westward along the canal to bridge 12 and a Toilet stop at Herriot Watt which should be open. From there we go north to RBS head office and join the cycle track on the north side of the A8, past the Tram Depot and along Turnhouse Road and around the road towards Cammo, turning left over the River Almond on Grotto Bridge into Riverside Road and on to an early lunch/late coffee at Craigie’s.

After refreshments we head north to the A90 cycle path to Burnshot and re cross the River Almond on the Old Toll Bridge, along to Whitehouse Road to Cramond and follow the water side route to Leith Harbour and then pick up Sustrans route 75 and 11 to Roseburn where the ride ends. Some may well peel off before this however.

The route is approximately like this  about 50K.

Everyone is very welcome to attend but for riders new to the group, our riding guidelines on the following link 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   You will be expected to join Cycling UK after 3 rides.

Do take note of my phone number in case you get separated from the group. 0771 324 7662 and for new riders, I will collect your details prior to the ride.  If you intend to be a regular rider with us please email icectc.lb@gmail.com with your contact details and a contact number in case of emergency, so that we will have your details available..

Please make sure your bike is roadworthy and that you have 2 spare inner tubes and basic tools to change an inner tube.  Please dress for the weather. You will need to have water, lunch money, lights 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 with punctures and mechanical problems, you are responsible for looking after yourself and getting yourself home.
