  1. Oooft! That’s incredibly harsh Mr Yuille, to the point of being slanderous.
  2. Very sketchy Chung and have no wish to be prejudicial. One eye witness report states that the driver was turning left into Nithsdale Road. I also heard the bike was left without a rear wheel. All sounds quite horrible. It's a rubbish wee stretch between the lights at the top of Allison Street/Nithsdale Street and Nithsdale Road where the bus lane disappears and a left hand filter lane appears, added to which there are always parked cars to contend with.
  3. Corporate cycling event in the Lothians with a bunch of lawyers tomorrow, Charlie. Saving the legs. This working malarky sometimes is not too bad a gig. Enjoy.
  4. Brilliant stuff Girls (Elaine in particular; Martin and Alan too). Great initiative and a fab response. There's undoubtedly a latent body of female riders out there looking for some form of structured cycling outlet. The Wednesday evening does clash with our PT sessions, otherwise I'd be sending Heather along to join you all. Chapeau to Katie Archibald for taking a genuine interest in nuts and bolts grassroots cycling - all credit to you Katie.
  5. Got the heads up on this fatality earlier from my bus driver mate, as it is on my commuting route. A Female cyclists died this morning after an incident with a truck. Thoughts go out to her family. Be careful out there boys and girls.
  6. With Heather in the USA I’m on dog sitting duties this week, Greg. Cycling curtailed to local roads for me. Should be out next Tuesday.
  7. Anyone up for this tomorrow? In line with some of the comments on the Chaingang threads, a slightly later depart of 6.20 pm due to traffic out of Glasgow being pretty heavy in previous weeks. Post if you are riding.
  8. Cheers Charlie. Hmmm, that would translate into a 110 mile day for me, assuming I ride in from and back to Carmunnock. Some ways to go yet me thinks.......unless I get to loiter at the back sucking wheels all day. All good. Enjoy Barca. M
  9. Just asking, but what was the mileage for the day yesterday (clubrooms to clubrooms or thereabouts)?
  10. Hope to be out, at least for a bit. Holiday legs on......and full winter kit after 2 weeks in the tropics! 09.00 at Miller St good for me.
  11. Just in case anyone was thinking of turning out, I'm not going to make it this evening - too much to get through at work the week before hols. M
  12. Run as per last week. 18.15 depart (5 mins grace for traffic). Lights are advisable.
  13. Sewing Bee #1 - completed. Seemed like a good idea at the time - a bit of sunshine, clear skies, even the roads were a bit quieter than usual...... and then someone added the wind. Horrible return from Stewarton all the way to Carmunnock and no wheels to sit on. Still, was good to get it done. Might take a bit longer than your 4 week estimate Charlie, just saying like. Will post for next week M
  14. Billy, could you tell me what was your intended outcome or sought response from making the statement - "Not the Wednesday he’s consistently riding his bike , and training no big secret".
