  1. Hope everyone is keeping well in these strange times, With the new guidelines, I am meeting Andy G tomorrow in Dalry at 9.30 and heading through Lochwinnoch - Kilmacolm road - left turn before Kilmacolm - Greenock - Loch thom - BB (maybe - there were cyclists sitting outside today, looked busy though) then back via Heely or W Kilbride. Company most welcome up to 5 max as that is how we interpret guidelines (first come first serve don't all rush 🤣) Please note we are not wearing club kit just to avoid any misunderstandings. cheers

    🤥Thanks George, appreciate your comforting words, I feel like I've lost a limb. However, I'm sure we will be back horsing it round the Thursday night route and Arran in the Autumn
  4. Eh Alan, the idea is that you need to win the previous round to post the photo for the next round Nice photos though
  5. 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 !
  6. Nice one, pretty sure I know but I am not going to get out tonight (said that last night too)
  7. 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 ?
  8. Thanks Jan, you inspired me to go out tonight for an unplanned ride
  9. I think I know where it is - but won't get out on bike till at least tomorrow night...….

    Personally I would like a cider/lager snakebite one

    That has to be the coolest jersey since Roger de Vlaeminck and his Brooklyn Chewing Gum classic. Might need an El Dorado one for George

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

    Zwift Etiquette

    Good grief, there are more layers of drama to Zwift racing than a prize onion, and there was me thinking that Arran provided enough drama for a lifetime
  14. This real life soap opera has become addictive in the past few weeks

    Spain Camp 2021

    Yes, wish we didn't have to wait till 2021 We were incredibly fortunate getting those brilliant days in Espana just before lockdown this year
  16. Jan You're doing a great job with this, I will eventually join up but past few weeks have been very busy with work related issues! I haven't got round to sussing it out yet. Keep up the good work
  17. Mark Cavendish Human Missile good documentary A Sunday in Hell good for a long turbo session Any Flanders or Roubaix replay from the past 20 years That crazy Indian guy Hambini who rips apart brand name designs - I 've watched some after Jan and Darryl mentioned him ABBA The Movie (ok I'm going off piste now)
  18. Exactly what Alan says. Smart phone finds power meter immediately and basically that's it. Single crank 4iiii power meters (the one I use) dropped a lot in price recently to a bit over £200, I think. It has worked very well for me past 3 winters and 2 summers. If you want to use on road you will want a head unit but that is not what you are looking for right now. on subject of head unit …. The one I use, a Lezyne Macro (£80) has a slightly different principle for tracking - it uses your phone for location computing power - ie. you need to have phone with you on the run. That is why the head unit you require can be quite a bit cheaper. I took the view I always have my phone with me anyway so might as well get a cheaper head unit. In answer to next question, on the 8 hour run in Spain it was no concern about phone battery life - it just samples your location then the clever computer fill in the gaps (same as all trackers I imagine).
