  1. Was good to meet some old friends today and put faces to names of some others . Forty plus miles on familiar backroads in great company and a very very rare cafe stop for me . Need to try and do it again before another 2 years pass .
  2. Should to be out for this one, not looking forward to Bowfield start we don't have big hills in Uist . Hoping to have another past president with me on Sunday all going well.
  3. Herdys Hell , now that was a classic gravel race before they were invented
  4. Remember riding this in early 80s Robert Millar won it from Drew Brunton in what would have been a photo finish these days . They escaped at heads of Ayr when a horse unseated its rider and split race apart . I was in the break chasing and when we were coming down the Nick of Balloch John Clanky Clark was descending like a demon we overtook the motorcycle marshals who couldn't keep ahead of us on the bends . Remember a hairpin bend with a bridge and my bars scraping the wall as we came round as my back wheel skidded on loose gravel . Cracking race with some tough climbs . Ivy had Clanky , Ian Thomson , Davie Whitehall and Jim Mcmanus who took it in turns to attack break all the way in from the NIck . Managed to get a 6th place on my first time riding it .
  5. Jannza sorted me out with a cracking plastered called Craig from Inverclyde but I have lost his number , she may still have it
  6. Ramsay I have a Cube SUV with Bosch drive , bought it for my wife but have used it quite a bit this year following my car crash . I use it in Uist on windy days where the electric boost makes riding sustainable . Its heavy but Bosch motor has a fair bit of torque and has range of 80 miles on lowest setting which is strong enough for climbing Glenifer braes ( tried it out up there when we first bought it )and there are 3 more settings to boost power further . The new road and gravel bikes are superb and they are getting lighter all the time . Our Bosch motor has covered 2K miles and is still going as good as when we got it with battery still charging fine as well . James is a mechanic in Dales in Glasgow who sell all types of ebikes and is used to servicing and maintaining them . If in Glasgow pop in to see him I'm sure he would be able to give you some advice on whats best on market at present . They also have demo bikes for trial depending on availability , since lockdown demand is outstripping supply .
  7. Cant recall anyone talking about a hut at Carbeth in club history . Individuals had huts and probably the best person to talk to about this would be JJ Harris ( Clarion who used to run the Trossachs TT) who still has a hut out in that area .
  8. Hi looking for a plumber to disconnect bathroom fittings for tiling ( fitting 5 shut off valves ) then reconnection in Glasgow . Any recommendations please its for my daughter . As a single young female she has been getting silly quotations . thanks Kenny MacD
  9. that would be great Darryl I will let James know and he will be in touch many thanks can you pm me a mob number please
  10. Hi anyone got a cheap pair of shoes and pedals lying about ? My son is looking for a pair to use during lockdown . Anything considered thanks
  11. George the fish man as much part of Dooleys shop as Willie and Sadie LOL
  12. don't think its Andy Lochrie looks like Black Boab quality race team in its day
