    Thank you to everyone who helped out today. The event went really well and we had some great rider feedback about the day. Just in case, if anyone notices any of the signs still up then let me know.

    Excellent event Gerard. Food was especially good. Thinking I might take that Jayne home with me next year.

    Wide open this year Cedric in Portugal, Sam in Mallorca, Robbie in hibernation, Stuart unable to make it, Marc and Galeb possibly boycotting, Ian doing the Lyle hill climb. So that leaves the big question....Is there anyone left who can beat the new slimmed down Charlie?

    Lyle Hill Race

    Matt Henon from GTR has asked me to publicise the Lyle Hill Race on Saturday 28 September: https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/race-details/19509 The Lyle Hill overlooks Gourock. The Bunch pass it every time they cycle to Largs but I suspect they never take the pleasant detour to what is a wonderful view and a fantastic location. I've just come back from the Stow triple hill race where the under 16's showed me a clean pair of heels. Hill racing is particularly suited to our lightweight juniors where restricted gearing is not a handicap. And I'd enjoy getting a stuffing from the Jets; as long as they come out on the winter Renfrew bunch and let me get my own back. The hill takes 5mins and I suspect power climbers like Marc Kelly could press me all the way. Then there are the hard men like Galeb and Charlie, and the softies like Richie and Billy. Be nice to see how we all measure up against each other. Ian

    Glad I made it out in the end... tough going at times but felt quite strong despite a slight knee issue. Good company, lovely cake, and it stayed dry. That'll do!

    I'd keep the hill climb champs on the Elliston as the closure makes all the difference - the narrow road and blind bend are only issues during the confined events because of the potential for traffic. Maybe use some other hills for the Tuesday nights but i suspect at this time of year the turnout is going to be less anyway due to the weather and reduced daylight hours.

    Hill Climb #2, 10th September

    The 2019 club hill climb championship will take place on the Elliston Castle climb, which will be closed for the event. If there's a desire in the club to change that route for the future, raise the suggestion at the AGM. I will look at the suggested routes, as well as the likelihood of actually getting a road closure. Obviously, we can't ask for a road closure for the Tuesday night events, as that would really inconvenience the local residents.

    Hill Climb #2, 10th September

    A narrow lane with a blind bend:JWCC hill climb route isn’t attractive / safe. Scottish hill race calendar is good this year too. Dukes Pass, Stow, Lyall, Gleniffer, Lomonds of Fife... I’ve entered them all! These hills take 5 to 10 minutes to climb. Be good to have a practice on the Gleniffer Braes or a hill of that nature. Or how about a Bunch ride and race up 2 or 3 hills and let Strava assign the times. The weight weenies could give the sturdier types a start

West Glen to Kilmacolm and loop back to Finestra Cafe and met Iain McGinty just back from Largs.After coffee and cake headed to Lochwinnoch and then back along track. Only one shower throughout the 40 miles and a good introduction to the club for Dave F. Dave

    Saturday 24th August - morning ride.

    Great ride! Met chung en route to the bridge, met John and Iain there. We cycled to Garelochead where we split. Chung went up Glen Fruin to Balloch and home from there, and John went to Kilcreggan in the hope that the ferry was running... it was! Iain and myself carried on to Arrochar where it started raining literally as we started to climb the Rest (we had a very small tailwind up - every little helps!). However nothing really came of it and we had a wee coffee and some food at the top before heading down the main road towards Strachur. We stopped for a bite to eat at the old wee pub/hotel on Loch Eck (nr the caravan park) which was really nice. By this time the wind had died down and it was a straighforward run into Dunoon for the ferry back. Sore legs kicked in for me going along the A8 but we persevered and got home at the back of 3. Decent day out, cheers guys!!

    Trying to get out but may need to bail at The Green Kettle and head back via Killcregan ferry. Just haven’t got the miles in the legs this summer. If I’m not at the bridge at 8:30 don’t wait.

    Rothesay weekend

    Cracking day at Rothesay APR. Only 3 of us in first group which wasn’t great. After about 4 miles we were 2. Was going well with youngfella from Ayr was averaging 165 bpm There were 2 sprint primes at 16 miles and 24 and we took one each. Got caught at 30 mile marker and game over. Limped back to finish. Still got cash for being first ( and only) over 60 to finish and cash for sprint prime paul Ritchie and colin were in group who caught us and they were all looking strong and finished well

    Banging bunch of 9 today. Had a blast up the coast then a visit to the BB where we caught up with Ian C. Pretty cold and wet when we came out so it became an eyeballs out experience via W Kilbride to Lochwinnoch where I was relieved to exit left. Good riding from Charlie with a rapid pace being set mainly by Richie, Gregg, Marc and Scott but everyone emptied the tanks.
