    so we are now allowed non socially distanced group rides of up to 30 people. You will have to socially distance when not riding though 🤷🏻‍♂️ This means that up to 27 more than last week can attend 👍 I have a ride round Galston-Moscow in mind & will upload it from Strava if I can work out how to do it. It’d be good to get a big group out. I know plenty of people were out last weekend with splinter cells. Your prerogative but why not get value for your £30 membership fee? Unless you have Covid symptoms. If so, stay away 👊

    3 out today and rain come on as we stood, majestically, outside the club rooms. We sacked the leg bender in favour of track to kilbirnie then over to Largs. It hasn’t changed much since last week. Sodden & frozen by time we got there so agreed it’d be a wizard idea to go home the way we came. Home, drookit and straight into my monthly bath. Not many folks turning up for club rides, despite my selfless and Herculean efforts to keep the club alive. Is there anywhere anyone fancies going?

    Covid19 updated 11/09/2020

    Following the guidance update from the Scottish Government yesterday (10/09/2020), Scottish Cycling has confirmed the latest position regarding cycling activity and all of our individual responsibilities before, during and after each activity. The updated route-map clearly states - the changes to meeting socially do not apply to services or activities that are already exempt from these restrictions and have been permitted to open subject to their own guidance such as organised sport. Scottish Cycling has had this confirmed this morning by sportscotland, so clubs can continue to run their activities in line with the previous guidance published on the 24th August. The key points now which will be reinforced are: The wider societal rules apply before and after club activity. Clubs must reinforce to members that this means a maximum of 6 people from 2 households, indoors and outdoors. This also applies to cafe stops, so please consider this when planning club activities. It is more important than ever that sport demonstrates to the Scottish Government that we are committed to running our activities within the agreed guidance. At present, this means: All clubs should have appointed a Covid-19 Coordinator This Covid-19 Coordinator should be known to Scottish Cycling The Covid-19 Coordinator should have completed the mandatory sportscotland e-learning and evidenced completion of this The club should have risk assessed its activities and made members aware of any mitigating measures in place Scottish Cycling has emphasised to sportscotland that this exemption to organised sport needs to be more clearly communicated by Government, to ensure that clubs are not confronted by members of the public, who may rightly think, that we are not complying with the government guidance.

    Garmin query

    https://www.dcrainmaker.com/2020/05/garmin-launches-strava-komoot-route-sync-works-on-devices-a-decade-old.html Should work, although i've not tried it with komoot. There is also a manual way to do it too - download the gpx file, connect garmin to computer then drag and drop the file into a folder called 'new files'. Disconnect garmin then next time you turn it on the route should appear under courses.

    Corona virus update

    SC issued new guidance on 19th August to the effect that club confined events can take place again from 5th September. Gee, ta. Realistically, that gives us 3 weeks to run events midweek before light stops play. Even using Saturdays leaves us extremely limited, so I propose to the membership that we run no confined events this year. At this stage, the whole club run on Boxing Day is doubtful, but who knows?

    I know the route - could tweak it a bit and head to the cafe that Mark recommended a couple of weeks back? (by tweak could potentially miss out the whole transmitter climb )

    Hi Iain, weather turned out well for you, looked like a good brisk ride. I read above that George didn't join the bunch but asked for someone to stand in as the Wheelers ride coordinator, primarily to take the track & trace register and maintain Covid protocols, who was this as I've not received a list of attendees and contact details yet? Looking at Strava numbers it was probably the largest bunch out in a long time, a good mix of Wheelers and guests - for the purposes of Covid track & trace that doesn't matter its the details of everyone involved is all I need. Cheers, Eric

    Track league

    Just to let you know the track league is being postponed to January 2021 and the season is now going to be the calendar year rather than the winter with a short break over Christmas/ New Year. There will be a longer break in the summer, so in effect the actual months being raced will be the same as before the difference will be in the league table. 4 months to get fit!

    Corona virus update

    Very understandable, a disappointing season all round, any attempt to resuscitate it now would be a waste of effort. Back next season stronger, fitter and faster (is what my sensible brain says, but it usually gets overruled).

    ARRAN

    Latest news from Arran …. Me, Jan McT and my daughter Emma set out for an SA today on the 7am ferry. Knowing the relative form of the three of us I thought it was pretty much a sure thing. However, every day is a schoolday as they say. The wind was ENE and Jan and I conferred and concluded clockwise was the best option. In all these years neither of us have ever done it with an Easterly or similar wind and we discovered the hard way that it is pretty dang hard. We both produced higher normalised power than 4 weeks ago when we did a pretty comfortable SA and Emma worked with us toe to toe until the final 3 to 4k yet we were about 7 mins slower and were not allowed to embark the ferry as they had just locked the gates ! So it doesn't count I think I speak for Jan as well in that we knew it was a lot harder even before seeing the numbers, with the exception of the south side run it was basically head or cross head all the way and it felt like it. I was gutted for Emma as she really deserved the SA on her first attempt with a really strong ride. There will be plenty more opportunities
