It’s October and as we wind down from summer and get ready for our autumn and winter programme, it’s time to take stock of the year we’ve had and look forward to the year to come.
We invite all members (or those who want to join us) to attend our AGM on Saturday 20th October, at 4pm at Buddies Bike Barn on Friar’s Vennel. If you come along early (from 3pm) there will be a chance to try out some of the adapted and accessible bikes that Buddies have on offer. These are great fun regardless of your cycling needs so do pop along and have a go.
There will be more details to follow – but this is also advance notice of not one but two Halloween rides. Our traditional Halloween After-Dark Ride will be celebrating the clocks going back in our usual fashion with a ride on the Sunday the clocks go back to laugh in the face of the long winter lights. Join us on Sunday 28th October for with 26 spooky miles out under the (hopefully) stars around the Glenkiln Reservoir and back through Speddoch. Lights (and warm clothes!) essential.
For those with littler legs, we’ll be joining forces with Buddies for a pre-Halloween fancy dress ride in Dock Park on Wednesday 24th October. More details to follow but there will be face painting beforehand – and a very high probability of seeing some ghoulies and ghosties on the ride itself…
