Edinburgh Group Night rides?
If we can do a loop that doesn’t involve the dog chasing sheep then of course! I wish I could take mine, but it would be carnage!
Anyone interested send me a pm with your email or phone number (if you have whatsapp I can start a group) and I’ll get something arranged.
I’m based in dalry, so meet at canal, or near harlow for anyone out that way?
FYI – I have very little knowledge of the pentlands other than the basic loop, so happy with route suggestions
Also, I’m not ridiculously slow, but I’m not fast, so hopefully this can be a leisurely pace!Posted 4 months ago
Never seen any doggers in the Pentlands. East Lothian however…
Perhaps not technically dogging, but I remember doing some hill repeats of puke hill a few years back, and some dude was getting blown off in his astra. Didn’t get an invite to join in however…looked to be enjoying himeslf though, which is the main thingPosted 4 months agomyopicSubscriber
Maybes. There were a few last year on Wednesday evenings starting late August into September, with 3-5 people off here.
Edit: it was early Sept – here’s the thread:
Maybe resurrect it?Posted 4 months agoojomMember
I could bring back TBC Wednesdays but they wouldn’t kick off til about 8. Got wee one to hang out with innit.
Plus I’m basically all roady now anyway so my extensive lycra collection might get ripped.
Wednesday was going to be Zwift night dans la garage/Rex Kwan Do Dojo.
We could simply smash each other up and down puke hill for an hour every Wednesday then hit the pub to rehydrate.Posted 4 months ago
I’m planning on a regular Thurs night ride however I have to be at the Commie pool for 8pm, so back to my van at Bonaly for about quarter to. When the clocks go back I can start about 5pm or earlier as the days get shorter, the advantages of working outdoors.Posted 4 months agostuartm555Member
Thursday nights are good for me, and I’m happy to commit to it if anyone else is. I did a lot of Pentlands evening riding through the summer but have got a bit slack in the last month, so committing to a time and place every week would get me out! Also happy to drive to some other places if boggy Pentlands starts to get dull. @tpbiker I’m not far from you .. will send you a PMPosted 4 months ago
im too unfit for those kinds of shennanigans
And you don’t get fit by not riding!
I’m out most weeks just now under the guise of ‘puffer training. Leaving work about 430, up the canal and looping the Pents for a few hours. While I don’t want to be unsociable I do like to keep moving rather than 10 minutes of bantz at every gate. And Thursdays seem to work. If that suits anyone come along! Or we could get to Bonaly and jump in ojom’s pain cave. BREAK 500 WATTS WALKAWAY.Posted 4 months ago
I work in Juniper Green on Thursdays. If I can get finished at 5pm then I can be at Bonaly and ready to ride by 5.30pm. As I’ve said previously I have to be at the Commie for 8pm to pick up the boy, if others want join me and the timings are ok then they are welcome but I can’t change my Thursday plans. I will be hoping to do longer rides as sunset gets earlier but I’ll be working to 5-5.30 until then.Posted 4 months ago
