  2. Somebody loves a camera! 😄 https://www.facebook.com/photo/?fbid=10227565081051164&set=pcb.5081872575245409 Results, times and plenty photos here, https://www.facebook.com/GeorgetownLeague
  3. My time on the night…18m32s. Not the worst and I am not disappointed with it for a season’s opener, but lots of room for improvement. There were a couple more Wheelers/Jets so do post up here with your times.
  4. Sunday: 0930 meet at ClubRooms, we head to the lanes of deepest North Ayrshire, up the Bowfield and turning right at the curling rink, down to Gateside where we take a left heading towards Highfield, then left again towards Auchentiber, Torranyard, Cunninghamhead, cafe in Stewarton (suggest Mill House), and we return via Townend of Fulwood (towards Neilston Pad), Neilston, finishing with the Shilford climb, with a final descent down Auchenlodment into (hopefully) sunny Johnstone. Route: https://www.strava.com/routes/2960281318784878192. Hope to see you there! Colin.
  5. Clubrooms Miller St 9.30am Run to Stewarton area with coffee stop. Will be approx 40miles at sensible pace ...around 15/16 mph for any newbies wishing to join in. Mainly quiet roads and lanes. Dave
  6. I’ll try for this. Will confirm on Saturday
  7. Earlier
  8. Hi Sunday looks good for a visit to Dunoon , 08:30 club rooms for those riding down and 10am ferry , hopefully I will drive to ferry
  9. Good run yesterday to the Windfarm with no mechanicals. 11 left Miller St to head up the Bowfield. Anthony and son Eaun, Alan T, Murray, Beppo, Chung, David C, Andy, Tom, Carol and Dave. 8 continued to the visitor centre where there was abit of a queue behind a large Glasgow Green group, (grrr) and after refreshments returned via Eaglesham Road, cutting off past Bonnyton Golf club to Newton Mearns, Barrhead and down Neilston Road to Paisley and to finish in sunshine.
  10. Hi folks Does anyone have one of these? Rear mech hanger for Scott Foil rim brake 2017 model? Have ordered one but it may not come in time for Rob’s race on Saturday. Tia. D
  11. To paraphrase Mark Twain, rumours of the recent demise of the main bunch Sunday runs, are a bit exaggerated! A good size bunch left the club for Largs via Brisbane Glen. After a brief stop we headed to West Kilbride, Dalry, Barmill, and home. It was left to the hardcore to go for a couple of light refreshments in Howood, with the rest pleading time constraints, family duties, and other excuses 😅 if you don’t believe me, the images below quite clearly show a bunch of cyclists hanging around the public lavatories in Largs 😀
  12. Thanks to all who took part in our 3rd APR. A ve try fun morning with some strong performances. Our group was very smooth, I thought, with everyone sharing the work. Opted for keeping it together when we got caught 😅
  13. Lumpy Largs, back via West Kilbride

  15. Trip to Whitelees Wind Farm. Eaglesham. Meet Clubrooms Miller St 9.30am Route via Bowfield, Lugton, Dunlop. Stewarton, Fenwick Road to A77 cycle path and then on to visitor centre. return via Bonnyton and Barrhead. A steady climb all the way up to the windfarm, but decending most of the way back. No-one is left behind. A good run to a quite isolated spot for anyone who has not been here before. Approx 45 miles return Dave
  16. Will probably miss the first couple but looking forward to getting back to it! Also front lights are needed too.
  17. The Georgetown League is now open for entries online, check out the Facebook page for every detail you need. This year we are trying out using members times from the Georgetown League towards our own Chocolate series to hopefully have more people to include. I am aware that this does conflict with the Wednesday night social runs, but that means there is now no reason not to get out on your bike. Once you have done your run please remember to post up your time here on the Bunch, there will be a new thread for each week which should make finding the times easier. Please not that rear lights are compulsory for this event. https://www.facebook.com/GeorgetownLeague/
  18. Hi folks Our 3rd APR training ride takes place this Saturday morning. Usual format. 9.30 clubrooms for ride over to the circuit. Hopefully we can get a few more people this week, especially in the early groups. cheers
  19. Quick reminder: Wednesday social ride is at 6.30 this week.
  20. Hi David... Good to hear you'll be out but we've got a change of plan, hope that is ok? I'm going to start at West Ferry 0930 (or later if it helps) and ride in Argyll - Tommy Donnachie going to lead the route so that I can get some new roads in. The route I posted was done by the club recently so there weren't many takers. Hope you can still join. I'm happy to meet somewhere and ride to the terminal together or if easier, just meet at the jetty. Hope that all ok?
  21. Meet clubrooms Miller St Johnstone for 9.30am depart. Route via cycle to Kilburnie, Dalry, Fairlie Moor Road to Fairlie and then into Largs and coffee stop at Bagel Basket. Options for return but will be at least 45 miles return and hills involved. Good sensible pace as always and no one is left behind. All welcome. Dave
  22. Hi Colin, I will be out on Sunday, see you at the bridge.
  23. Hi all, *** CHANGE OF ROUTE PLAN *** Looking to ride this Sunday, meeting at Erskine Bridge for 0930, head to Rest and be Thankful, inland at Strachur, Down via Loch Eck and home via Dunoon ferry and back to bridge? I've only done this route once and i'm not that familiar with Argyll but can follow my nose and find my way. If a big group isn't interested than that's cool, I can stay more local and solo something big regardless. Cheers *** Morning all. Given that the Rest and Be thankful/Loch Eck route has been done by the club recently, the new plan for Sunday is to meet at West Ferry Jetty, either 0930/1000/1015 depending on who is interested v cycle time to get there and head South and West from Dunoon round the peninsula. Tommy D can lead the way but we'll likely end up with 80-100k ridden on the peninsula. Hope that suits for a few folk. Weather is dry and a decent double-digit temp. Thanks ***
  24. Bought a large size via Amazon and they’re too small for me (not boasting!). Like these ones https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B07Z44CVWS/ref=ppx_od_dt_b_asin_title_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 Still in the packaging, they cost me £45, I’ll accept £40. Don’t really want to return them to France, because of customs declarations and hassle.
