  • This week as a summer solstice special we will have two rides running with Judith, Ruby and Naomi as leaders!

    One will be a more classic QoP ride—under 20km, party pace, and exploring our beautiful city. The other will be longer—30km—and include some mixed surfaces (gravel paths). The 30k route will be heading towards Dalmeny House and back! Routes to be posted before the ride.

    You will be able to choose your adventure on the day! But if you know already—leave a comment to let us know if you’re thinking of the shorter or longer ride.

    We will set off at 7 pm and both rides will be strictly no-drop rides. We will wait at key points to keep the group together. These group rides are more about claiming some precious & potholed tarmac space, rather than chasing QOMs. The only essential thing to have is a working bike - any type will do. Fully charged lights are a must and we encourage you to wear a helmet! A small request that everyone checks their brakes beforehand as we want to keep you all safe. A spare tube to fix a flat tyre is a must and some tools would be grand but there will always be someone with tools to help out if you need to borrow anything (if disaster strikes, you will get help). Our rides are completely self supported which mean we will be there for you as best we can but you are ultimately responsible for your own safety and wellbeing.

  • I’m favouring the longer route 😎

  • Yup, I'll go long too!

  • A long one for me too!

  • Hopefully long but depends on timing! :)

  • Gonna be going for the long route!

  • Long for me!

  • I’m up for the long route!

  • Long for me :)

  • Long route!

  • Longer one here too 😊

  • Long route for me too! Looking forward to it :)

  • 👋 was planning to come on Wed for my first time with QoP but I've just missed the last spot available. Do you post on Insta if there are cancellations or should I just look at this feed every now and then?

  • Long route for me please ✌🏼

  • Marianne, you just have to keep an eye on this page. But there are always a few cancellations late Wednesday afternoon as folk get delayed at work or realise they've just got too much on. Hopefully meet you on Wednesday!

  • Hi Marianne,

    Yes as Eve said people usually do drop out closer to the time, so do keep checking back! Hope to meet you soon—if not this week, the next :)


  • I fancy the long ride I think!

  • Bahh, too late ! I'll check on Wednesday afternoon :)

  • Here is the shorter route option. We will follow along the same direction as the longer crew but peel off early for a wee pootle along Silverknowes Esplanade and back on the bike paths to Fountainbridge Square. The route is little under 20km and free from gravel so more suited to those who need to get home earlier or would rather avoid an off road adventure!


  • Long route please :D excited to celebrate solstice with you all!

  • Following in case of drop outs! Charlotte

  • I'd like to join the longer route tonight!

  • Hey I can't make it anymore if you want to take my spot

  • Some spaces have freed up!
