This is a group for anyone interested in non-competitive, social cycling in and around the Edinburgh area. Our aim is to visit places of interest and scenic beauty and will, wherever possible, endeavour to use designated cycle ways. However, there may be circumstances where we may elect to use paths and main roads. Our range will be typically, around 20 miles in the winter and 50 miles in the summer, with a lunch break (1 hour approx.). Please check before travelling to the meeting point that the run is still on. We may cancel if the temperature is below 5 Degrees C.
It is up to each member to ensure they have a bike which is safe and suitable for the terrain on the ride.
Although the emphasis is on fun, it is expected that all members, including organisers, will adhere to the Highway Code and other relevant laws and also treat each-other with respect.
We will cycle as a group, with regular catch-up points, and no-one will be dropped. It's all about the last person to finish - not the first. Anyone is free to leave a ride at any point, but out of courtesy, should tell the leader or appointed back marker that they are leaving.
I have taken on a 6 month plan for the moment and we will see how it goes after that.
