    I think the sore point some good bits now cost some money. I went premium shortly after lockdown. Flash Harry always thought the polis got paid too much

  6. Cheers graham was going go head out early this morning but painting duties got in the way. Good photo Couttie as White House in distance is a strava finish and west Glen is a short little hurter. note to self don’t blurt out answers
  7. Well done guys good initiative. Just a pity I aint on zwift
  8. This was a terrible ride today and I feel I owe it to you all to share my view: 1. Too much focus nuero muscular, VO2 max, and threshold. Too many sweet spots and not enough zone 2. Just maximum rubbish with minimum gain. I was knackered by inverkip 2. Riding in a slow cadence is almost universally accepted now as silly. You want to grow your quads - sprint flat out for 10s. Churning for 3 hours is like going to the gym and squatting the bar for 3 hours . Really!!!. Slow cadence and wheel sucking is my mantra but could the fit dudes please stop increasing the pace. I not getting enough time to get out my banana. 3. This ride was not just time inefficient (we spent half our time free wheeling when we could have been on the sofa practising our duolingo Spanish) but more, now my legs are semi shredded for tomorrow. Think we could have done with a bit more free wheeling. 4. Not even the social benefit of riding in a group. Either semi puffing or waiting for Billy in his big ring. Billy was smart and stuck to turbo on this horrid day. But you right. Only chat I got was from Andy when we got pumped off bunch in to Largs We all have different goals I know. But this ride is ill conceived I appreciate some guys like it. I wondered why Lynsey Curran refused to turn out - I’d told her we were touring round the lanes - now I know. It was a testosterone fix. C’mon guys. We can do better than this. Lynsey Curran Was smart enough to look at forecast to conclude that this was madness My suggestion is to stick to a long zone 2 ride. Throw in a few 10s sprints and if you like, 30mins at sweet spot. if only !!!! I appreciate this will involve reprogramming our very own Duracell toy, Charlie. Never mind reprogramming I need a total reservice I guess the forum is not for this type of comment. Won’t take offence if the moderators take it down. Honest And for those looking to hire a car from Alicante airport try Rentalcars.co. Naw Billy giving me a lift.
  9. Thru bishy as that is route posted
  10. Could have sworn that in past years we actually did go thru Erskine but hey ho
  11. Alan the map you downloaded does not go thru Erskine but straight to to bishy from red smiddy roundabout but do recall in past years we did indeed go via Erskine. Which route are we to take?
  12. Good bunch today. Always good to get first Hilly langbank done. Same again next week
  13. Loops it is. Presume meeting at viaduct at 9.30am
  14. Was trying to postpone loops till March cos they hurt. My route will have us back by 1 pm
  15. Departing 9.30 am from care home at junction of Main Street BOW & Houston road. B788 The Whin loch Thom Largs ( bagel basket) west Kilbride Dalry barrmill howwood JOHNSTONE. Company welcome
  16. Ah forgot brunch in with daughter tomorrow so no go for me
  17. Ah the mad men are going out. See u @ 9.30 am
  18. Same owners Ginty. They been there for a few years now.
  19. Yip found that tough today. Think I was getting too anxious with my garmin telling me I was over 200 bpm. On a positive note had a word with Bagel Basket owners about coffee complaints. They were grateful for feedback and were going to review their coffee but meantime provided extra coffee shots for those that wanted. Lovely gesture. It’s always better to give feedback to a coffee house that has supported club for many years rather than abandon ship
  20. Any one experienced their hrm going sky high when it shouldn’t. Was out today and an hour n to ride hrm spiked to 180 then went crazy. Training peaks have congratulated me on a new threshold of 185 bpm and I got a new bpm record of 206. They should have sent me a crash team. My normal hrm threshold is about 150 and if I do over 170 bpm I go in to red. So has my body given up or does garmin sometimes go tonto. I had changed the battery on the strap last week but I have used twice since then and it was fine. may be my next purchase should be a defibrillator
