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.

From Akva, exit and cross Fountainbridge. Traverse the paved section beside Loudons and climb the ramp into the Building. Exit, cross the road and follow the curve round to All bar One. 


From the West End. Shandwick Place and Canning ST. Walk down Rutland Square (one way), then up the ramp to the footbridge that flies over the West Approach Rd. Tyen Left and 20 Yards takes you to All Bar One.
