  1. Running 10 mins late. Will still drop by club just in case.
  2. There will be a run from Miller Street on Sunday at the later time of 10am for 40 miles of easy pedalling around the shire.
  3. Hi folks At the AGM it was agreed to form a short-life working group with the task of reviewing our confined events calendar for 2022 and beyond. Over the last few years, numbers participating in confined events have dropped significantly with the current levels of participation now making some of the events unviable. The feeling is that there is a need to explore how we can make the confined offering more attractive to club members. With this is in mind we’d like to invite interested members to be part of the working group. Joining this group will not commit you to anything more than looking at ways we can enhance the confined events. The aim is to put together a proposal that we can share with the wider club. I know from discussing this informally with many of you that there is interest in a revamped calendar, and that there are some good ideas out there. So, please contact Darryl or Gerard in a pm via the WhatsApp group or The Bunch, and we will get this started asap. Thanks Gerard and Darryl
  4. A few of us did the coast today. The Sunday club rooms are suffering a bit during this period with folk doing other things. Normally I’d be out both days but not this week. Some footage of the run today: https://youtu.be/stCV0o4gjB0 https://youtu.be/V5j9Wgt7Wcg https://youtu.be/PRIPu5i5SYA https://youtu.be/kEf_TdBwDcM https://youtu.be/nhcwdFBrbk4
  5. Nice to see you at the end, albeit briefly. Lovely day for it.
  6. Just want echo Paul’s post and to encourage anyone who quite fancies it but maybe isn’t sure, or perhaps doesn’t know everyone. We first went just before the first lockdown and it was great. We stay in a quiet area with great cycling and accommodation. Basically, because the weather is so nice, we are out on our bikes all day. In the evening we have some nice food and a couple of light ales, and repeat the next day. It’s a great mini- break. As Paul says, get in touch if you fancy it. Cheers
  7. Great write up Colin. Many thanks for taking the lead here, I’m not sure we’d have managed without your steady hand guiding us through it all. Already looking forwards to the next race series in January. Have to say it has been an absolute blast. Anyone who fancies racing for their club should give it a go. It’s online so of course it’s not like irl. But, it’s safe, inclusive, a good workout, and the weather can be as warm or cool as you wish. I think we are recruiting for more team members to compete, so don’t be shy, drop me or Colin a line and hopefully we’ll be able to field stronger teams with a full complement of riders for the next series of races in January.

  8. Sunday Ride. Will be at the clubrooms at 9.30 for a relaxed tour of the shire with coffee stop in Kilmalcolm. No more than 50 miles.
  9. I have a Kinesis Racelight frame with other parts for sale. It would make an ideal winter bike/hack. 1. Race light frame and forks 55cm top tube. Suit rider from 5’7 -.5’11 approx 2 campag bb; compact chain set; front mech; long drop brakes; muddies; seat post; saddle of choice; handlebars of choice; stem; back rack As I say, would make an excellent cheap tourer/winter hack. open to offers
  10. Looks like the all club ride is cancelled (See Alan T’s earlier posts). Anyone coming out to play on Sunday morning? Rob and me will be at the club rooms at 9.30. Probably go to Largs via Fairlie and return via Brisbane Glen. Post up here or on WhatsApp if you are coming so we know to wait if you’re a bit late.
  11. Robbie did an effort on the climb tonight. It’s on Strava!
  12. Sorry racing on zwift tonight and Robbie is doing his own thing. Cheers
  13. Robbie plans to make an effort up the hill today, so we will be there anyway.
  14. Me and Rob will be there. Happy to time keep if needed.
  15. Another nice ride through the lanes. This will be the last organised Wednesday run, but so good to see a big bunch out. Here’s some footage of tonight’s fun. https://youtu.be/xNktt8ERB_A https://youtu.be/dvJlOz_KuwU https://youtu.be/JtI5WUnPo1E https://youtu.be/fGxYKA97ALg https://youtu.be/wQx47EUfr5k
  16. Well done all, and thanks to David for timekeeping. Congratulations to Iain and Ian, closely followed by Sam and James.
