    Hello everyone!

    This week we'll be heading off for a mini-tour of some of Edinburgh's neighbourhood parks. Expect a bit of everything: smooth tarmac, not so smooth tarmac, off-road cyclepaths, maybe a wee bit of muddy-gravel, and definitely some New Town cobbles.

    Here is the route: https://www.komoot.com/tour/1502818792

    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. Fully charged ligoIe&ref=wtdhts 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.

    Hope to see you for the ride!

    Woohoooo it's our first Queens of Pain ride of 2024! I don't know about you, but for me this one needs to be about easing back in to cycling after some serious eating, drinking and being merry. Hills and cobbles will be kept to an absolute minimum! Route will be posted in the next couple of days.

    Setting off from the Botanics at 7pm this is a strictly no-drop ride and we will wait at key points to keep the group together.

    Hello!

    Join us for a leisurely pedal taking in segments of the Water of Leith, the North Edinburgh cycle paths, Dean Village and ending with amazing views from the lake at Inverleith Park: https://www.komoot.com/tour/1357109563?r­ef=wtd&share_token=aCH4yXp7sDpRHc47PtzqC­azUrcW5RVkMnF1OsOXawWtiACh6co
