  • Hello everyone,

    Hopefully. we'll miss the showers on Wednesday, but there is a watery theme as we head south to the base of the Pentlands, following the line of Edinburgh's first piped water supply (well, with me there's always going to be a bit of history). There's a bit of uphill (though nothing like Arthur's Seat!), a chance of spotting the ghost on White Lady Walk, and maybe some Highland calves too! The return, of course, will mostly be a downhill breeze. I'll finalise and post the route tomorrow.

    As usual, this is a strictly no-drop ride and 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 bring is a working bike - any type will do. The clocks may have gone forward but we'll be finishing after dark so 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 by signing up for this ride, you agree that Queens of Pain and the ride leaders are not responsible for your safety - you are ultimately responsible for your own safety and well being.
