As @frankenbike suggested let’s have a place to drop some routes
Here’s my first offerings, based on what I’ve ridden since moving down here/previously.
And one for Frankenbike
I’m sure others have loads more knowledge of the local routes, I’m very much just learning the lanes here. But keen to get out and explore on a regular longer rides on Saturday mornings if people are keen?
Fixed/SS/Gears friendly, just like Outliers Tuesday hills in London’s famous South London
just moved to Edinburgh in June and only have my fixed with me, hopefully retrieve my road bike soon too... up for fixed friendly rides
Going to start off some All inclusive rides This month I think 👍🏼
References complete so I'm joining the Edinburgh crew from the beginning of September—can't wait to get stuck in to some of these routes and hopefully contribute the odd one.
I usually have a Thursday off and Sunday morning free, so if anyone is keen to ride any of those days hit me up. Happy to do geared/fixed/gravel and show people around all the good bits if they’re new to Edinburgh.
That's super kind, I think I ought to have Thursdays off too—I'll be in touch.
look fwd to it, will keep an eye out....
Following chat in the touring Scotland thread, looking to get some steady relaxed rides in this week. Will be in Edinburgh mon-fri. Will post here in case anyone interested.
I might be around this Thursday if that works. Keen to join in some small group rides while I'm there.
Will probably be on my road bike. Looking at weather, thought about taking my winter bike with full mudguards etc, but probably ok with summer set up?
I’m away Monday to Saturday this week unfortunately
No worries. Did the 50 mile loop out to Haddington. Nice once out in the lanes - pretty much had them to myself.
Nice, glad you enjoyed it
Get out west if you can as well, more interesting elevation and some corking laneage to be had as well
thanks for the NBerwick loop recommendation, i took it the wknd before last (slight adjustments as i'm using Komoot and though it would be quicker just to replot than transpose...?) suited fixed 48x18, very quiet roads outbound and the coast back not too bad as all the traffic was in opposite direction heading to the beach
Glad you enjoyed it (if it was 'my' route you used!)
I'm going out every Tuesday and Thursday at the mo on 40milers, happy for people to join responsibly. I will eventually get some Outliers weekend rides going as well, I hope!
I leave Broughton about 6ish and routes vary with wind direction
Going to start doing some Edinburgh Hills rides on Tuesday nights
All welcome and more info here
Route is here
to satisfy thread title and for people to scrutinise :)
Just enjoyed my introduction to the Bathgate Alps with your 04/01 route, @Ecobeard—thanks for sharing, it was a fun first proper Scottish ride!
Just seen this, glad you enjoyed!
Is it worth riding laps of Arthur’s seat?
Staying at my sisters in fettes village and she’s been no help on where to train for a Mtb marathon in 2 weeks!
If it’s MTB you’re looking for you could head out to the Pentlands via the Water of Leith?
