Saturday 16th March at 10.00am This is what time the ride will set off. It’s best to get to the starting point at least 15 minutes beforehand to avoid missing the start.

Starting Point & Postcode
Sky 2 Mcintosh Road, Kirkton Campus EH54 7BW
Overall Duration On a long ride, it’s sometimes good to have a little break in the middle, or maybe a catch up at the beginning or end to keep it sociable. This means that the overall ride duration may be longer than the actual cycling time.
3 hours 10 mins  (2 hours 30 mins cycling)
Bike Type You probably don’t want to drag your road bike across bumpy trails. Maybe you want to make the most of the suspension on your mountain bike. This helps you match your ride to your bike.

  • Reuben Millward Reuben Millward Hello and thanks for your interest in the superb Skyride programme to bring cycling to your life and city.

    Cycling and drumming are my main passions. I simply adore peddeling along (without my drum kit) at a swift pace on or off road. I enjoy road and mountain biking and have cycled in London and Glasgow since the age of seven, for pleasure and charity and as a mode of transport. I commute to work when possible and I'm committed to promoting city cycling as a greener/ healthier option for all and making cities and the public far more cycle friendly. I also organize cycling events in my profession in promoting recovery from mental health issues.

    Road cycling is my main activity at present and I'm currently about to complete my accreditation four on the Chris Hoy Velodrome (the Track is amazing, try it if you get the opportunity, the skills you learn on the track are transferable to other cycling disciplines).

    I recently completed my British Cycling Off-Road endorsement at Whitelee Wind Farm, which was an excellent opportunity to build on my existing Sky ride leadership skills and knowledge (thanks British Cycling)

    I have cycled with the Glasgow mountain bike club since 1997. I have cycled in the Islands of Scotland, the Lakes in England and France and Spain off road. I have much experience of leading rides and the issues that arise on Skyrides having led rides in Glasgow since 2009.

    I look foward to meeting you for a sky ride on a sunny day in Glasgow or maybe somewhere else in the UK.

    Cheers Reuben Millward

  • Bryan Harte Bryan Harte I have been actively cycling over the last couple of years and try to take my bike where ever I go. My main passion is for mountain biking, I just love to be out in the hills and forests but I also enjoy a gentle cycle around my local towns and villages. I look forward to meeting you all and hope you enjoy your days riding with us.
