    Cracking run today with sunshine too! ”Eleven” riders came out to play today - AlanT, Alex, Colin Sales (new member), Gerard, Glen, Iain Couttie, Iain C, Jaki, Tom, Marty & myself formed an orderly Bunch all the way to Kilcreggan with a cafe stop sitting OUTSIDE ...... in October enjoying the food/beverages & the sun of course! You should see the size of Iain Couttie’s omelette :-) it was the size of me head ..... but it did look delicious though, it must be because it didn’t took him long to finish it :-) Opted for the more direct route back after Helensburgh, rather than going up Sinclair Street on the return leg, straight down the coast. Good that we managed to all stayed together until the Bridge whereupon Marty & I headed home via the Westend of Glasgow. 159km by the time I limped home, I’m goosed but a brilliant day on the bike indeed! Thanks again everyone for the wheels & company! Cheers

    Nice ride today with Gerard & Chung. 2 cafe stops no less. Only blot was a whining noise coming from Chung”s bottom bracket. Now if was me would have fully accepted that Total lack of maintenance & my fault but when it’s the guru of bike maintenance the Mary Berry of bike perfection well does that not call for a full stewards enquiry and may I suggest might even qualify for a hammock award

    Had a chat with Davie C and Eric and we will be going even if we dont get entry. We will be saling from Newcastle on the Thursday and back on the Monday and will be staying in B&B Aan de Cauberg in Valkenburg. Hopefully we get entry but if not we will have a nice view of the finish from our hotel!!

    Hi All, It's that time of the year again, folks - yes, the much anticipated Drum-up on the shores of Loch Eck, where everyone pretends to be a contender on master chef, but in reality, there is only ONE - our own Gerard D I have been asked by a few as to if/when this is on! Obviously it's Geoff & Linda Smith & Iain Lochrane's gig, so I need to find out the details first before confirming. But I would imagine it'll be the coming next Sundays before November ........ As soon as I have confirmation, I will post up to let youse know & you can send of any dietary request to Gerard so he can be well "prepared" .................. I heard lobsters are great for BBQ Cheers

    Yip, Amaretto. I would love to introduce y'all to the magnificent roads in the Calpe area. Cycling heaven. And for those that feel inclined, there is always the 6km Col de Rates time trial with the timing hut at bottom and top. TT or not it is one of the best roads in the world.

    Yip, great run on a fantastic October day. Thanks guys, I was truly at the end of my rope in the last 10k. Saw the Kilkreggan bunch at Houston and they looked very tidy. Cedric had a 'significant' mechanical between Kilbirnie and Lochwinnoch. His fixie chain wrapped round the rear hub shell, jammed his back wheel and he had a long skid, which shredded through his new tyre. Anyway, went back to get him, repaired to mine for toast and scrambled egg before even looking at his bike as we both knackered. Eventually we went out and got him sorted with a tyre to get him home but he headed back on train to Glasgow Central as the chain looked like it could fail after its exertions. He made it ok. Loch Thom was pretty special in the Autumn light but not a patch on the utterly stunning view of Arran from West Kilbride with its sunny peaks and shadowy glens. The winter timetable starts in 2 weeks so it game on for the WSA. Just saying like.

    Nice to see you & Gerard as we were headed down Brisbane Glen. 3 of us had just finished the Lyle Hill Climb event. A tough wee hill, but a good event. Hope to be out with you next week, if not then deffo the week after

    Charlie, I want my money back that I paid you to keep quiet! I think it’s my knees rather than my bike really, so it doesn’t count! :-) Thanks for the run & company today guys! Weather turned out a lot better than forecast! Cheers

    Iain, I will definitely be up for another trip and not interested in a sportive TBH. I was checking out Annecy as somewhere different and it looks cracking with a mixture of hilly and coastal lake rides. May be a bit more expensive in terms of the social life but as we have not yet entered post Brexit dystopia I still have disposable income. Only concern is the blue passport queue at arrivals may take a day or so to clear. Have not got round to looking at travel logistics but aim to do so in the next week or so.

    Right then, just got latest intel from my sources (Agent Montague, AKA TT Fixed) The date for the Drum-Up is Sunday 11th NOVEMBER - time tbc However, due to previous editions when weather wasn’t exactly ideal, therefore Geoff have proposed a final confirmation of the go ahead of this will be the Tuesday/Wednesday before the Sunday. If indeed the forecast on the 11th is poor, then the following Sunday 18th will be the alternative, again confirmation on the Tuesday/Wednesday before also! So, pencil these dates in & watch this space for if/when I have any updates! Thanks for reading Cheers Chung
