Who’s Afraid of the Dark? A Halloween Ride!

We’re kicking off our winter ride season in spooky style, defying the clocks going back and the winter darkness with an after-dark ride.

Join us at 4pm at Dock Park on Sunday 30th October for a ride into the gathering dusk – out and round the Glenkiln reservoir, warming up in the pub afterwards for those who want to.

The clocks will have gone back, but don’t let that spoil your riding fun. A chance to check out your lights for the winter commuting season, and laugh in the face of the shortening days.

And as it’s almost Halloween – who knows what we’ll see once the darkness gathers? We will bring a bat detector too, just in case any of these nighttime creatures are still flying before hibernation.

A note for those joining us, particularly families: we welcome riders of all ages and speeds, but this is an approximately 25 mile ride with some sharp climbing and a long descent. We will be returning after dark, so lights are essential. Spooky costumes are optional.
