    Confined Events 2020

    I have attached the schedule of confined events ( and some open ones) for the coming season. Confined event awards are open to all club members, and are an excellent way to introduce new riders to the mysteries and dark arts of Time Trialing. This year, I have introduced 2 new courses for the League of 10. One is the Hilly course, and the other the restricted gear course at Gateside. These will be one of events within the league of 10, which will be mostly on the Westferry, as normal. If you want to give TT-ing a shot, these are the events to try. 2020 Confined Events Calendar.pdf

    A rethink of route on track will probably be in order. Reports of ice with riders down today. Choices: road to Dalry or do the route in the opposite direction. Thoughts?

    The gallop on a break

    Hope you all are okay and that someone is making sure there is enough suffering happening on these winter rides The galloping Galeb is on a bit of a break at the moment and may return soon. Merry Christmas for now!

    Posting up early in an attempt to revive our dead parrot main bunch ride. 09:30 at club rooms. Businesslike pace. Track to Kilmalcolm-down Whinn-Spango-Largs-Kilwinning-Home. Open to all, including Bogs Fetishists, Erskine Bridge CC, Cliquey Velo and any other splinter or sub-splinter groups. 😉

    Boxing Day whole club run

    Great run out today. Turned out the BBC lied to us about the weather, as it was dry but cold. Not a huge number of riders out, around 14, which splintered a bit before Bishopton, but the rest of the run was steady and pretty sedate. Refreshments at amaretto's were very welcome.

    Good 60 miles, it gets bad when Greg is pushing you along. I assume that’s why he he had his hand there.

    Super Saturday 11.1.20

    We never really post the weekly track reports any more so I thought I'd post a random one to encourage anyone sitting on the fence to make a return, Super Saturday B/C group results today showed a good presence of JWCC in the top 5 and the return of Jan McT to the type of form he was on a couple of years ago, Tempo : 1st Jan, me unclassified Points: 3rd Jan, me 4th Scratch: 2nd Me, Jan unclassified Devil : Jan 3rd, me 4th So for those of you who have been there done it (Sam, Stevie, Alan, Alan, Darryl, Charlie, Billy, Richard etc etc) and anyone thinking about it, this is a great way to spend a very grim Saturday afternoon Familiar picture on scoreboard below

    Could this be some video evidence of Ian being dropped into the headwind.... https://www.instagram.com/p/B7WpXR8Fn6U/ Anyway an enjoyable ride and the wind always makes things feel a bit more epic. May not make next Wednesday as will likely be back at the track league

    Cyclocross races on YouTube

    In case you've missed them, there are loads of free-to-watch 'cross races on GCN's racing channel on YouTube. Ideal if you're killing time on the turbo (or just killing time.) Highly recommended: the women's Waaslandcross Sint-Niklaas, and the men's Loenhout round of the DVV Trofee**. ** Watch this one! Watch this one!

    Sunday 12th January :Barmill circuit

    Six left Miller Street,in the rain, Elaine, Karen, Fiona, Mia, Graham and me and headed up Bowfield hill into dry. Made our way to Barmill and then onto Blair Road through puddles. Through the new roundabout at Highfield and then change of coffee stop to Aughengree Farm. Fully refreshed headed for the cycle track to Lochwinnoch and then up Johnshill. After a puncture and then a Hail Stane storm on the way up the group headed home. A better day than the forecast and good to get a good sized group again. Dave

  34. 1 point
    It has been a few years ago since we last did it as a club run but down to Mennock Pass and up to the radar station is one of the most memorable rides ive had. There was 7 of us out that day and i think everyone either blew up or was close to it at some point in the ride! Needs decent weather and a long summer day - big miles (130+), rolling grippy roads and pretty committing as there isn't much in the way of bail out options. From last year this was a cracker - could be done from the clubrooms https://www.strava.com/routes/21264510

    Interest free loan for E bike

    Having worked in Western Isles promoting electric cars and E bikes I thought I would flag up the current 4 year interest free loans available for E bikes . although applications can be for non E bike on a case by case situation ie commuting to place of work . The new E bikes are stunning and the range is getting longer and longer , they are excellent for older riders and casual cyclists . They are coming more and more popular and appearing in lots of sportives nowadays https://energysavingtrust.org.uk/scotland/grants-loans/ebike-loan?dm_i=2PT0,YY7M,68M6U9,3O5EN,1
