Gravel Rides

Gravel Rides


Where do we ride from?
Start points vary between Linlithgow, Falkirk and a few other locations, such as Beecraigs, so keep an eye on the events calendar or social media to find out where exactly. Rides are usually 20-30 miles in distance, with a mix of abilities in the group.

When do we ride?
Tuesday evenings at 7pm. Club run details are posted up every week on the website and on Facebook events. Social media is also a great way of letting us know you are coming along for the first time. For those not on social media, drop us an email on clubruns@westlothianclarion.co.uk instead. We aim to keep the website as up to date as possible, but its best to follow us on social media to stay informed of the latest schedules.

New to Gravel?
You don’t need a fancy gravel bike, although they are beneficial. A CX bike, mountain bike or any bike with nobbly, sturdy tyres will work. The GCN video below gives some good tips on bike handling on different surfaces.

 


“When the spirits are low, when the day appears dark, when work becomes monotonous, when hope hardly seems worth having, just mount a bicycle and go out for a spin down the road, without thought on anything but the ride you are taking.” 

Arthur Conan Doyle
