Weekly Tuesday evening Pentlands ride

1.5 - 3 hour approx. or there abouts. Suitable for all but the complete beginner. Social ride starting along the Union Canal meeting at the Boroughmuir Rugby Club bridge next to Collington Road. Head up onto the Water of Leith and up into the Pentlands, choosing from a range of circuits. Where we go depends on the group's decision! 
Nothing too grand or dull, somewhere in between. Social ride with some interesting bits and a bit of a mid week work out! Get out while the days are long...ISH!

We prefer all riders to be wearing helmets. No helmet: no ride. For the good of the group. Thanks.

BRING LIGHTS...even a head torch as by 930 pm it's starting to get pretty dim!! 'It's pretty dark in them there woods.'

WAITING LIST- 
I've increased the numbers as there was quite a waiting list. We can always split into two groups and do two different routes

    Great ride last night folks and great chat and laugh all round. Thanks to various folk for leading different bits...I knew where we were...honest!! It was great to ride some new trails and keen to do the same route again. Good to seee new folk and some regalulars along.
    Note to self: Prior to asking others if they have lights, make sure I remember my battery pack!!

    Great ride, great folk. A whole bunch of you were asking about my absurdly bright head lamp. If anyone wants any tips or advice on getting el' cheapo grey market lights, send me a message.

    So turned into a solo ride for me once I eventually got through traffic. Annoying as I won't be able to make another one for a few weeks.
