    Hey QoP!

    Issy and Ruby will be leading the ride starting from Leith Links and finishing up at Lost in Leith to celebrate Queen Alice's birthday!

    We will set off at 7pm for 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. 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 wellbeing.

    Here's the route: https://www.komoot.com/tour/1215234623?r­ef=wtd

    Hey Queens!

    Join Issy this week for a seaside ride taking in some of the sights of Newhaven. 🐟⚓🦭

    You know the drill, strictly no-drop ride. 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.

    Hiya- we are meeting by Lochrin basin. I've just updated the event info as I should have been more specific to start with!

    Come ride with us before we join the Infrasisters party!

    This year Infrasisters falls on International Women's Day. They are calling for an equitable approach to designing public spaces and transport infrastructure. For more info on the Infrasisters ride see here: https://www.infrasisters.org.uk/post/emb­race-equity-march-8th-2023

    The weather is looking chilly but try to wear purple and / or orange if you can!

    The days are still short (although getting longer) so fully charged lights are a must and we encourage you to wear a helmet. A request that you check your brakes beforehand and bring a spare tube or plugs to fix a puncture. Some tools would be great too but there will always be someone to help out if you need to borrow anything!

    Slightly updated route for this evening:

    Come beat the January blues with us!

    The route will be an oldie but a goodie of a loop down south over the Braid hills (on road) and then a seat lap.
