Get out and ride this weekend

Club Captain Neil Greer has posted up a couple of first rate routes for this weekend's rides but suggests the weather may get the better of us.

Make sure you take a look at the route and read our ride guidelines before coming out:

There are 3 rides leaving Linlithgow: a 12mph Cafe Ride, a 15 mph Club Run and an 18mph Hard Group Ride. 15mph club run starts from East Calder.

Make sure you choose the right group for your level and follow the correct pace for the group you are in.

Saturday 21st

Linlithgow Leisure Centre
Start: 9.00 am
Route: Braehead
Ride Leader(s): Can you lead the ride? Contact Neil Greer on to volunteer

East Calder Sports Centre
Start 8.30 am
Avonbridge Loop
Ride Leader(s) Can you lead the ride? Contact Neil Greer on to volunteer

However, with Winter being very unpredictable at the moment, the current forecast is not looking too encouraging.

It is showing 4C (but feels like -2C), light rain and W winds of 26mph, gusting to 50mph+, which is not really conducive to good group riding if this translates into severe crosswinds...

Sunday 22nd
Sunday only looks marginally better (2C, W20mph, gusting to 40mph)

So, I recommend that everyone contemplating riding this week-end keeps a very close eye on the forecast and makes a decision based on that; better to be safe than sorry, and there is always the turbo!

Whatever you end up doing, ride carefully...
