  • Royal Commonwealth Pool, Dalkeith Road, Edinburgh, EH16 5BB

    These rides are welcome to all including non club members and members of other clubs. Edinburgh RC recommends that riders limit themselves to a maximum group size of 14. Larger groups should split - this allows for a more consistent training effort and safer riding. All runs start outside Royal Commonwealth Pool, Dalkeith Road, Edinburgh, EH16 5BB. 

    There are four groups, as follows :

    09:30 - the fastest group - for those who are training to race
    09:40 - for experienced club riders
    09:45 - for experienced club riders, but at a more sociable pace
    09:45 - Development ride - for new members and newcomers to group riding:

    If the group you choose is too fast, don’t worry - another group will be following behind. If your group is too slow, please don't disrupt the pace - move up a group next week. Whatever group you choose, always ride safely and obey the Highway Code

    If you have just joined the club or are thinking of joining then the 9:45am Development Ride is for you. It will be led by an experienced run leader who will introduce you to the techniques of group riding often including a “through and off” chaingang. Even if you have some experience, you are encouraged to join this group to meet new members and to learn local calls and signals. Afterwards we meet up for coffee with riders from other groups.

    While the Development ride is not for complete novices, no-one will be left behind. The route will vary and the typical pace will be between 14mph and 16mph for between 2.5 and 3 hours. Please read our FAQ for more details on what to expect.
    http://edinburghrc.co.uk/frequently-asked-questions/#development-ride

    If the weather forecast looks particularly bad (risk of snow, ice or high winds) then the ride may not take place 

    Please ride safely and predictably, with consideration for your fellow riders, and above all within the rules of the road. Individuals take part in any group rides at their own risk. Edinburgh RC and its club members accept no responsibility for the safety of anyone participating in group rides, and no liability in the event of an accident.

  • Charwood Restaurant, 47 Buckstone Terrace, Edinburgh EH10 6QJ

    A more relaxed ride leaving the Charwood Restaurant at 10am prompt.



    This is ideal for club members moving on from the Saturday 09:45 Development Ride but already experienced with group riding. Members wanting a longer more relaxed social day out will also be very welcome.



    By popular demand the relaxed social ride now takes place twice a month, winter weather allowing. See the diary for details but generally these organised rides are scheduled for the first and third Sundays of each month with the first Sunday of the month rides open to tandems and retro bikes.



    These rides are led by experienced ERC members with route and distance determined on the day. For further information email Roger Hassall - rdhassall@gmail.com

  • Charwood Restaurant & Bar, 47 Buckstone Terrace, Edinburgh EH10 6QJ

    The ERC Sunday run leaves from the Charwood Restaurant, 47 Buckstone Terrace, Edinburgh EH10 6QJ

    You can find the location here:
    http://tinyurl.com/bvpfzx6

    The start time is the time the run leaves - so please aim to arrive at least 5 minutes ahead of that time.

    The Sunday run normally averages around 17 mph and is aimed at riders training to race or reasonably fit recreational cyclists. Riders are assumed to be self supporting and, while the group might have a cafe stop, this is not guaranteed, and riders should carry adequate food and drink. The group will always stop for punctures etc, and will aim to accommodate a reasonable range of abilities, but those significantly slower than the general pace of the group should be prepared to navigate their own way home.

    Routes vary from week to week, going East, South, or West, and usually sticking mostly to more minor roads. Distance varies according to season and weather, but is typically 50 to 70 miles, although shorter options are usually available.

    RUN PREPARATION

    Riding in a group has many advantages but it also places certain responsibilities on each rider. Punctures, mechanicals etc, whilst often bad luck, can be less of a trial if certain precautions are taken before the run

    Make sure your bike is safe - check your chain, brakes, wheels, rims and steering. Also ensure that nothing is loose (especially mudguards) or liable to fall off.

    Check your tyres - worn tyres are the single biggest preventable cause of punctures. Multiple punctures, apart from being a pain, won't endear you to other riders waiting for you on a cold day! Make sure you know how to fix a puncture - practice beforehand if you need to.

    EQUIPMENT REQUIRED

    You are likely to need the following equipment:

    * An appropriately serviced bike
    * At least one, but preferably two, spare inner tubes.
    * A working pump
    * Puncture repair kit - for those awful days when two tubes aren't enough.
    * Tyre levers
    * A multi tool - to adjust gears etc
    * Other optional tools e.g. chain breaker
    * Even in winter hydration is important, so each rider should carry a drinks bottle
    * Money - for the cafe stop
    * Waterproof
    * Solid carbohydrate source eg banana, raisins, jelly babies

    Individuals take part in any group rides at their own risk. Edinburgh RC and its club members accept no responsibility for the safety of anyone participating in group rides, and no liability in the event of an accident.
