    Thanks Galeb! Tough shift today. Small bunch departed Renfrew into the wind. After Largs the pace went up leaving a highly select group of strong guys Galeb, Ian A, Gregg, Scott, Finn Crockett and Ross Clark.

    Regular bogs bunch tomorrow 10am

    I think it’s safer doing bypass and harder! It will however require a new segment which means that Mark Cushley likely to be KoM lead forever.

    Regular bogs bunch tomorrow 10am

    Well that was hard. Thanks to scotrail I missed the Bunch making it to the bogs at 1005. I decided to chase in the vain hope that a mechanical or the traffic light gods might smile upon my forsaken soul. Hope blossomed at the Red Swinney as I could see the unmistakable sign of car queues and flashing red lights. However by the time I made westferry there was not a sign at all. I continued to pray to the traffic light gods but the only signs they gave me were reds through the port and Greenock. So up through Spango Valley. It is indeed a dark place but shaves nearly 3k off the 56k to Largs. I made largs just ahead of Bunch which gave me a few extra minutes recovery time before joining the bunch properly. The bypass was hard and I knew by the time I reached Kilwinning I was living on borrowed time. I sat hopefully on Gregg’s wheel and momentarily was inspired by Dr Alan getting back on the Bunch. However once Gregg started to move to the front at the saltworks I was gone. Lights out. Nice company back to Beith with Paul and Alan before heading back into the wind. I was never so happy to be home! Good work out.

    Sat 29th Fenfrew Bunch

    Yes I think the quote “all hell let loose” fully captured the experience between Weymss Bay and Ardrossan roundabout. Regularly 50kph plus. I chased Richie and Gregg down on two occasions during which I’m sure I was hallucinating the Care Bears. ‘Twas good fun and felt like a very thorough smashing. Looking forward to the post Christmas auchintiber lochlibo Road route starting next week. Not. Andy
