20-Milers Evening Rides 2017

 

Every Thursday evening while the daylight is good.   

Gather at 18:30 (for an 18:45 start) 

 

The rides are 15 or 20 miles, and won't usually include a break. The pace will be around 10 miles per hour. 

Rides will return to the centre of town, before dark. However you will need lights, with battery power for several hours.

 

 

Meet at Akva

129 Fountainbridge, Edinburgh EH3 9QG

 

From any point on the Canal (blue line), just ride into Edinburgh. After the Leamington Lift Bridge, Akva's beer garden is right at the end of the water.

 

From the Cameo Cinema (green line), follow Lochrin Place until you see the canal. Akva is at the end of the canal,

before you exit to Fountainbridge.

 

From Evans Cycles (red line), head Westwards (away from Lothian Rd) and Akva is on the left.

 

Either look for us at the paved outside area, between canal and bar, or go inside if the weather's poor.
