    Hi Guys, Having spent the last few years working abroad, I've now retired and returned home. Not wanting to turn into a full-blown couch potato, I'd like to re-join the mighty Wheelers. Assuming you may actually let me back in, can someone advise on how best to go about this please? Cheers, Frank

    Cycle Jumble Saturday 23rd November

    Art'n'salvage in Dalry are holding a cycle jumble sale this Saturday from 10 am. If you're looking for a vintage steel frame or vintage parts, it's definitely worth getting along for a rummage.

    Yes I want to go I cannot miss this one. Chung has advised me to learn to swear in Flemish. Also advice on the Koppenberg??? I thought that was a cider. Although I will most definately be singing happy to hire or car share. Also can someone tell me how I book accomodation? All help much appreciated and Thank You Chung for the words of wisdom. L

    That’s a pity, Glen. Any other adults going that are driving to the ferry or want to hire a car with me? I promise not to do my car pool karaoke.

    It's a brilliant place to cycle Ramsay, but as Paul says, the nice roads are either up or down.. I stayed up near Los Gigantes too, its better than down near the bigger resorts where the roads out of town are very busy.. Depending on what you're after when youre not on the bike you might want to consider staying up in one of the villages in the hills.. Give me a shout if you want a chat about it

    Just noticed this Ramsay. I've been to Los Gigantes 3 or 4 times over the years. Once you get off the main drag there is some pretty amazing cycling, however it is very hilly up at Los Gigantes. As in you only need 2 gears, a 34-28 and a 52-12 ! Not really any flat run options except the coast road which is busy. All depends what you are looking for. cheers

    Suggestion for 10/11/19 or sometime.

    Maybe not next week as in Largs today but how about: clubrooms and up Auchenlodement Rd-over the braes and down Dalek Hill-Neilston-Kingsford Rd then left on A735 to Stewarton-B778 Block Rd to Auchentiber-Dary-Fairlie-Largs-home-phone in sick Monday.

    Martin - many thanks for the advice. I'd love to attend the AGM and curry. It'll be a good opportunity to catch up with old faces and meet some new ones. Chung, Iain and Darryl - thanks for the good wishes guys. Hopefully meet up on some bunch rides when I'm up to it. Charlie - I'm definitely up for the Wednesday rides but I need to get fitter first. Been a few years since I've done any serious miles and I don't want to hold you back!

    sadly not next year Martin, i fly back from holiday same day. Ramsey i have done both routes and the middle route 174kms is my preference. 04:00 start long route versus 08:00 start for the middle route makes a big difference. Sure you and Elaine will have a ball,. One of my favourites days on a bike and the beer at the end also plays a big part whats getting added to the collection this year Mull, full beer pump?😀

    I was busy doing things, so have been entered for the full distance by Mrs M....although may see if I can amend, as I'm not sure that I can do that much without my knees falling off! Hopefully have a campervan by then, so will be staying in that....somewhere! Where are you guys staying and what distance are you doing?

    Ice warning on the track.

    Our jets bunch fell foul of ice on the track this morning - only one spot, just before you enter kilbirnie, but best avoided. Run off water which had frozen into a metre wide strip. 4 riders down but no one hurt though
