Summer/autumn, winter for the hardy souls
Learn to ride safely and efficiently in our chaingang development sessions. One or two groups head out and back on loops towards Linlithgow or Aberlady, working on smooth pedalling, easy transitions and tight riding. It's tough, there's no denying that, and you'll be spent by the end (if you're doing it right) - but all that will be worth it come the weekend.
Wind down on a Thursday with a social spin around the West Lothian Mini-Alps route. Nothing too strenuous, just an opportunity to get out in the lighter evenings with a friendly bunch.
SUMMER/AUTUMN - Check FB
Each month Alasdair 'don't worry, we're just taking it easy' Anderson and Jimmy 'the wilderness cowers before me' Grant take those with nobbly tyres out on the trails in the greater Lothian area. I'd be more specific, but you should see some of their routes...
