Saturday Ride 28th Feb

Nine riders were out on the Saturday run this week. Bill, Stevie and Mark turned up at the Korean war Memorial riding their fixed wheels along with regulars Angus, Andy and Andy plus new riders Dick, Ross and Graham. The group headed off to the Dalmeny Estate.

Bill said "It was a good bunch today and we really enjoyed everyone's company. My legs are quite stiff already, it was no easy feat against the head wind on the way back. It's funny how you think it's so easy, then you turn and wham the wind hits you full on! Ross did well and it was good to meet Graham. After the ride I called Mark and he said that he struggled today, no wonder, cycling 12 miles there and back to Livingston plus the ride, ouch! Thanks to Angus for his hints on fixed wheel riding, he has a wealth of knowledge. We rode about 40 miles"

Dick said"Thank you all for a great ride today. first time out with the club, and you all really made my mate and I more than welcome. The banter was good and the riding equally so. Thanks to all who pulled on the front, being new, I tended to wheel suck a lot of the time so to all you guys that took the wind right in the fizzer, chapeau!"
