    League of 10 Westferry, 3rd August

    I have had a trip along the route to check out the roadworks. The cones are all still at the side of the road, the lay by is still closed and there is no sign of any work being done soon. It is clear that there is still some work to be done, so we should check every week we plan on using this course. This should mean we are all good to go for tonight. N.B. There is a temporary 40mph speed limit for part of the route, it shall be at individual rider’s discretion to observe this.

    Sam Dooley 25 mile TT Sunday 22nd August

    The closer this event gets, the more I’m thinking that riding it is a really bad idea. Happy to help out with whatever needs done, and I can bring a pop up gazebo if it’s needed.

    The much postponed Frank Lauder 10 (the club 10 mile TT championship event) will take place on 17th August provided that the roadworks on the A8 remain inactive. The 2 preceding Tuesdays, 3rd August and 10th August will also be on the Westferry for league of 10 events subject to the same caveat. The 2up TTs will be postponed until 24th August with the David Raymond trophy (2 up TT Championship) being competed for on 7th September.

    Tha Galston Leg bender sounds a bit much for me given my lack of cycling over the past month, so I'm gonna head to Aberfoyle and back with Tom whose in the same boat, 60 miles from the bridge to bridge, relatively tame pace.. Youse are more than welcome to join if you feel like an easier ride... Sorry, not meaning to hijack, just dont think ive got a hard day in my legs..

    Sorry Roberto, I didn’t check the time before we rolled off. I guess I just made a poor assumption that everyone had turned up.

    League of 10 #5 13th July

    Yep, only yourself and Paul have posted up to say you’re coming. Sorry, but running a race for two people is not a good use of anyone’s time or effort.

    I’ll check out the Westferry in the morning, but I really need more than 2 riders to make it worthwhile.

    Sunday 18th July - Kilcreggan

    Hi folks, 9am at clubrooms and 9.40 at the Erskine Bridge (south side) for a jaunt across the water along through Helensburgh and past Faslane to Kilcreggan. We'll join up with 30milers to Helensburgh or Faslane (depending on who from 30milers wants more miles). Suggest we keep the water on the left and we take on the Coulport climb after the cafe in Kilcreggan. Return via Glen Fruin or back the way we came - can discuss at cafe on the day. Circa 80 miles. See you Sunday Colin.

    Sunday 4th July

    Good wee group of 30 milers, intermediates and main bunchers set off from Miller St. for a few gentle hours around Barmill, Beith, Lochwinnoch, and Kilmalcolm. Think we delivered on the three C’s- cake, coffee, and chat. We did get a wee bit wet, and I think a few folks turned off early (Frank? David?) but the cafe in Kilmalcolm was super - good shout @Ianarchibald. Had a good chat with the Glasgow United boys, and bumped into JWCC legend Katrina Hair. All in all another good day on the bike. Cheers 🍻
