    Sat 29th Fenfrew Bunch

    Great to see so many JWCC for different parts of the run today. Darryl, Galeb, James, Andy and Alan were all present at sections on the route. We had singled up through Wemyss Bay due to line of traffic, I rolled through and suddenly me Andy and Alan were way off the front. Andy and Alan were up for putting the hammer down, I was a bit more conservative thinking we might not want to poke the bears behind. However the bears were indeed poked, Gregg and Richie came flying past a km later and all hell let loose for the first balls out habble from Wemyss Bay to Largs of the winter. A similar performance on the W Kilbride - Ardrossan road in the cross tail wind. My day finished with a very civilised ride and chat with Doc Alan from Beith to Lochwinnoch.

    Good route Glen, cold start but we found the sun in N Ayrshire after passing through some dodgy fog patches earlier. Shared Dunlop Dairy tearoom with our 30 milers, which was nice. Shame about the punctures otherwise no dramas and the bunch enjoyed a good day on the bike!

    Boxing Day club run

    Good day out, 14 in the bunch, couple of punctures in Bishopton, but otherwise event free. Beer at Amaretto's was just fine. Good to be out.

    Good day out today, short but lumpy. Thanks to all for towing me about. Struggled badly on the climbs today. How glorious was the weather above the clouds though?

    Regular bogs bunch tomorrow 10am

    Was very glad to get out today after numbing the man throat with paracetamol and ibuprofen! A real solid run until we got to the dreaded Kilwinning drag. Got dropped just before the left turn which was agonisingly near the top, an oft repeated tale the past few years. However it meant a very pleasant run back with Andy and Alan. Galeb - this is the standard route for the bogs bunch after new year, sorry I got pumped and could not give you directions. My 'radical' suggestion was to go up round the by pass at Ardrossan roundabout as opposed to trawling through the 3 towns, Ardrossan, Saltcoats and Stevenston. I think that worked well in the sense that cars have the extra lane to pass you and it saves a lot of traffic lights.

    Regular bogs bunch tomorrow 10am

    Well that was hard. Thanks to scotrail I missed the Bunch making it to the bogs at 1005. I decided to chase in the vain hope that a mechanical or the traffic light gods might smile upon my forsaken soul. Hope blossomed at the Red Swinney as I could see the unmistakable sign of car queues and flashing red lights. However by the time I made westferry there was not a sign at all. I continued to pray to the traffic light gods but the only signs they gave me were reds through the port and Greenock. So up through Spango Valley. It is indeed a dark place but shaves nearly 3k off the 56k to Largs. I made largs just ahead of Bunch which gave me a few extra minutes recovery time before joining the bunch properly. The bypass was hard and I knew by the time I reached Kilwinning I was living on borrowed time. I sat hopefully on Gregg’s wheel and momentarily was inspired by Dr Alan getting back on the Bunch. However once Gregg started to move to the front at the saltworks I was gone. Lights out. Nice company back to Beith with Paul and Alan before heading back into the wind. I was never so happy to be home! Good work out.

    Regular bogs bunch tomorrow 10am

    After a week off the bike here I was turning up for the usual renfrew bunch. Before Largs burnt some matches and chipped of the front in the head wind and stayed away...it seems bunch didn't have appetite to chase and let me go. After a quick break in largs we set off to do a slightly different route (I thought!), or radical as Paul described it...the last stretch towards Barrhead/Paisley (I think) was intresting with 6 of us left out of a good size bunch, but at that point I was running out of fuel and decided I had enough. Had no clue where I was but luckily we caught Jan on that stretch that joined me and gave me some direction . Found my way...75 miles on the clock...good ride but a bit too long for me. I'm more of a 45-50 miles with a punch .

    Chung, I think this project justifies a Brooks B17, any other saddle is a mere imitation - you might even be able to get one in a matching colour. https://www.wiggle.co.uk/brooks-england-b17-titanium-saddle/

    On the CTT website it shows Loudon road club are running an early season TT up at Glencoe. Which is a long way from Ayrshire so presumably they will be focusing on that rather than doing the Galston TT this year.

    Sunday 30th Dec - Glen fruin

    Thoroughly enjoyed that today. Good pace, tidy bunch, wasn't so sure about the climb as already had 200 miles in the legs this week but made it. Shame about the slow service at Corries. Ended up going to Bridge Of Weir and taking cycle track to Lochwinnoch (halfway to Kilbirnie) and got 95 miles done (153km in real money) so completed Festive 500 (third attempt at it!). Happy days!

    Festive Renfrew Bunch... Plan was to catch them at Inverkip round about (cause going through spango valley is cool ) however, missed them again but this time I was ahead! Strong head wind heading to Inverkip which probably slowed up the bunch too. When I got to Inverkip thought I was late so head down into aero mode to Largs but no one there! A few mins later the bunch turns up...they must have been going slow! Not...turns out that it was balls out JWCC vs G Couriers by the sounds of it, will let the involved tell the story. Shame I missed that mincing. Back via Ardrossan with a good size bunch allowing a fast T&O. Good to see Alan McLean out with his 3/4 bibs! Food and rest now!

    Boxing Day club run

    To blow away some of the Christmas cobwebs and overindulgence from Christmas Day, I'm thinking of a whole club run, 30-40 flat-ish miles, social pace, starting at 10 am at the clubhouse, finishing at Amaretto's around 1-ish. It would be helpful if everyone who's interested posts up, so that we can give Carlo a heads up. Obviously a bit weather dependant, given the time of year,

    Unlucky Jan. Was thick pea soup from Kilmalcolm to Gourock then fabulous sunshine to W Kilbride and back to Kilbirnie then pea soup again. Excellent 3 up with Colin and Eric from Gourock to BB where we had delightful tea and scones and an impromptu visit from Davy and his dug. More of same after our elevenses round the traditional route via W Kilbride drag. Merry Christmas all
