Welcome to Hervélo

Scottish Cycling Club of the Year 2010, the year we formed.

We are a cycling club in the Edinburgh area which offers a variety of rides for a range of abilities with a focus on sociable rides. We have over 70 members, most of whom are women.

 

We encourage cycling at all levels from off road rides around Edinburgh, road rides to mountain biking. You'll see members in Hervélo jerseys in races across Scotland, including downhill mountain biking (includes the Fox Hunt with Rachel Atherton), enduro's, cyclocross, road events, sportives and charity rides.

 

Through our sponsors with Pedals Bike Care and Reekeie's Smokehouse we are able to offer discounts to members on bikes, bike parts and scrummy food in the heart of Edinburgh for any post ride hunger!

 

If you would like to join us in 2016 here is some guidance on the type of bike suitable for each ride.

Mudhoneys - for those who like getting dirty off road (and off track). Generally mountain bikes are required for trips to trail centres such as Glentress/ Innerleithen and rides in the Pentlands. For off road spins around town cyclocross bikes may be enough. We organise regular open to all rides at Glentress to allow potential new members to come along and meet some of our current members. Check out What's On for more details. Members organise more regular rides via our Mudhoneys facebook page. These are a mixture of blue/red trails at Glentress to some more gnarly 'off piste' trails around the Tweed Valley and day trips further afield.

 

Skinnies - for the roadies among you (for road bikes and skinny tyres : hybrids not recommended). Early season easy Skinnies rides are 20/30 miles on flattish terrain. Intermediate rides are about 40/50 miles with hills. Longer rides are 50+ miles at a faster pace (14-16mph), with fewer stops and breaks, particularly suitable for training for events (or the racers among you!). We organise regular open to all rides to allow potential new members to come along and meet some of our current members. Check out What's On for more details.

 

Hervélo for men - while we are a women's cycling club we are open to anyone who is passionate about cycling and want to meet likeminded people.

Check out What's On and come along for a ride!
