Joint club run with local women's club

Edinburgh-based women's cycling club Hervélo have kindly invited our female members to join them for one of two club rides after the open hill climb champs on Sunday 17th October, says, Women's Coordinator, Debbie Pollard.

There will be a social road ride incorporating a Craigie farm café stop, roughly 30 miles at about 12-13 mph and a longer, faster ride of around 50 miles at 14-15mph.

Julie Hutchison, organiser of the rides says:

"We would love to meet other local women and learn their favourite routes. I will be leading the shorter 30ish miler, and am ok on a route for that (Faucheldean, West Binny etc). I was wondering if after the hill climb one of your club members would be interested in showing us a 50 mile ride around your neck of the woods."

This promises to be a great day out. Come along and support Scotland's only closed road TT. Watch the suffering and cheer on those brave enough to tackle the wall of Kingscavil. Sample the delicious home-baking at race HQ. Then enjoy 30 or 50 miles cycling on West Lothian's scenic roads, in the company of other like-minded women cyclists.

And it's not too late to enter the competition itself - as far as I know we only have one clarion woman entering - five Hervélo ladies have entered already!!

If anyone would like to join the Hervelo rides or volunteer to lead the 50-miler, let me know.
