    No words required. Received this magnificent photo today from an SA vet who quite understandably would love to become a DA vet 🤣

    3 years ago today

    This popped up in my iphone memories today from a ride over the rest and be thankful 3 years ago - thought a few of you may like to see. Gone but not forgotten!

    Hi folks, just a quick update to let you know that I completed Lockdown CycLEJOG yesterday, cycling a total of 1,000.5 miles (indoors) in 10 days. Thanks very much for the Zwift Ride Ons (especially Alan T), to Fiona and Iain joining my ride, and Elaine for keeping me sane(ish😉). My JustGiving page is still active if you are interested in donating. Once I've, ahem, recovered a bit, I'll hopefully join you guys on Zwift soon. Stay safe and keep pedalling!

    Oh boy. Definitely worth cracking a beer open for this one. We get Strava premium free in Kilmacolm, it comes with the Farrow and Ball paint catalogue. or you can pay about two coffees per month to totally nerd out on segments. Join us down the rabbit hole. You know you want to. Take the red pill and see how the world really is...

    Anyone for a game of bike tig?

    Iain I am going to fess up. I rode by this spot last night with the intention of taking a photo as I had a good idea where it was. However just before I got there I met Jamie Thompson and we were blethering, from different sides of the road of course, and we passed to spot. Long story short, I stuck bike in car last night and took this picture on my way to work this morning. So I would be happy for you to take the glory and post the next picture !

    Just a heads up there was a zwift meetup scheduled for tonight, i can no longer make it so have cancelled. I dont think a meetup can start if the leader isn't there so thought it better to cancel and you can arrange another ride instead should you want to.

    Hi Jane thanks for asking. Early in the crisis I asked people not to wear club kit if they felt they had to keep bunch riding because they would soon be seen as anti-social, if not downright criminal as was later govt policy. It is now ok both legally and socially to go outside more to exercise so personally I am fine with people wearing club kit solo or with family but would ask members to follow govt advice re. groups and please don’t meet up yet. Looks like we are still some way off big club runs. i went outside on bike this week for first time in ten weeks, it was great!. Alan

    Hi Wheelers, I hope you and yours are all safe and well. To raise funds for NHS Charities Together, I'm gonna do a Lockdown Cycle LEJOG, or "Lockdown CycLEJOG" as I'm calling it 😉. I'm gonna ride 1,000 miles starting tomorrow (01/05/20), mostly on my turbo (with some short daily outdoors rides) and am aiming to do it in 10 days. Would you be interested in sponsoring me? If so, the link to my JustGiving page is: https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/lockdowncyclejog As part of my daily miles, I'm going to have a daily 1-hour session on Zwift, from 5-6pm (hopefully this doesn't clash with the Club Zwift rides). Please feel free to join me, get in some miles and have a chat. My username (from what I can see 🙂) is K.Lockdown CycLEJOG. Thanks for reading, and stay safe friends 🙂

    So here is the next one - a bit trickier perhaps but I reckon a good few will know it, as for Alan and his cryptic 395573 number - is this an OS map reference or the cost of his Zwift set up ?

    Strava

    I have better number crunching software that I use from semi nerd Training Peaks Premium to full colour nerd WK05 software, so I have scatter graphs in colour , every bar graph you can think off . I can track power, power at threshold power at V02 max , HR at threshold HR at V02 max power at 150bpm , Time to Exhaustion, fatigue resistance , muscle fibre type VO2 max left and right power analysts left and right power absorbed. And phenotype plus can analyse against segments so do I need to pay for Strava for my dose of nerdisum no not reallly , always found it more of a social inclusion thing

    I tried this last week and it was decent. No sticky draft however it's treated as a group ride with sprints every lap (takes about 7 or 8 minutes a lap) Pretty flat circuit and last week i averaged 225watts (lighter riders will do it on less) Follow Renfrew Bunch on zwift for an invite

    Luddite Alert!

    Geo, my tv in my garage is only 22/24 inch or something but it was under £100. Saved money there and splashed out on a 4K Apple TV box. Connects via HDMI to the tv and everything is better compared to when I used my phone with the lightening connector.

    50 minute group ride starting at 6pm, no sticky draft. Not a race but a bit more than a group ride - go for a time up the KOM and sprint then regroup a bit. There will likely be splits in the bunch. Back to normal format on Friday Remember to follow Johnstone Wheelers on the companion app if you want an invite Before the event is due to start make sure you have opened up the game and can see your avatar and bike - you can ride about on any course or just sit waiting. When it is 5 minutes to the start of the meetup a dialogue box will appear on the bottom left of the screen - select that and it will take you to the start of the group ride.

    I suggest additional Thursday ride. Means folks can still get their steady rides in.

    Yeah it was tougher than i was expecting - took a good 10 minutes to catch you and Mark once you had the gap! I'm not sure why it was off i didn't change anything but it did feel a little more fluid in the climb and sprint sections. I could make the Wednesday ride sticky draft off. Or have an additional ride on a Thursday which would normally be the chaingang night

    Specialized Tarmac SL4 Pro 58cm £500ono

    Hi all, I joined the club a good while ago and met some of you on a few group rides. I've now moved to Johnstone so will hopefully be out with you all when the situation gets better (the one outside and also at home - just had a baby ). I am wondering if anyone would be interested in this frameset I have for sale. It's a 2014 Tarmac SL4 Pro (10R Carbon, just below S-works, higher spec than the elite/comp/sport etc). I purchased it from a gent who paid £4k for it with DA9000. I have the original receipt if you would like that too. The previous owner hardly used it, I used it for one summer for around 2.5k km so it's in great condition, small chip to the paint at the rear dropout, but nothing else to report back. It will come with the carbon seat post, headset/bottom bracket and the Fact carbon chainset 175mm 52/36 (570g). You can find the geometry and spec here - https://www.specialized.com/gb/en/tarmac-sl4-pro/p/49621. I would like £500ono for everything listed above. Drop us a message if you would like some photos or would like to come and see it (in a safe distanced manner) in Johnstone. Thanks.

    50 minute group ride starting at 6pm sticky draft on so no-one will be dropped for this. Remember to follow Johnstone Wheelers on the companion app if you want an invite Before the event is due to start make sure you have opened up the game and can see your avatar and bike - you can ride about on any course or just sit waiting. When it is 5 minutes to the start of the meetup a dialogue box will appear on the bottom left of the screen - select that and it will take you to the start of the group ride. Meetups have a new feature that means non meetup riders are hidden so that should help things.

Course is Innsbruck Lutscher which starts at the top of the mountain...unfortunately once we descend it will straight back up

    How the excuses have evolved. I would have won but: - my forks snapped and I had to find a blacksmiths to fix em - my derailleur jammed - my chain snapped - I punctured - my heart rate monitor said I was on my max - my power meter said I couldn’t attack - my internet connection failed 😄😀

    Sounds like a good challenge! At the weekend there are usually some long group rides - would be a good way to tick off some miles. ZHR Audax on a Saturday morning, that has several groups and KISS has a couple too.
