  1. Good run today. Wind was very strong but things felt pretty safe with the alternative route being a bit more sheltered
  2. With a south westerly at 25mph and gusting to over 40 this route manages to maximise the potential for getting most of that as headwinds and side headwinds. Practically the only bits with a tail will be the Georgetown and Sinclair Street. Can we not just get the train down the coast and then a tailwind all the way home?
  3. Only seven weeks to go until the chainy starts up! 6pm at the bus stop for the first few weeks then back to 6.30 as light allows... who is in? Still time for the crash diets and panic training to have an impact
  4. Sometimes happens due to salt build up on the strap - even if you rinse under the tap after each use. If you put it in the washing machine every so often (removing the sensor beforehand) then it should last a bit longer.
  5. that would be great i'll try to make it along!
  6. Wont be able to pick up tonight unfortunately - will you be doing the turbo / circuits in the clubrooms tomorrow night? if so could you bring mine then?
  7. 30th August i think. Might be wrong though
  8. Could this be some video evidence of Ian being dropped into the headwind.... https://www.instagram.com/p/B7WpXR8Fn6U/ Anyway an enjoyable ride and the wind always makes things feel a bit more epic. May not make next Wednesday as will likely be back at the track league
  9. paid, thanks for sorting this out!
  10. Yeah an enjoyable afternoon of racing!
  11. I remember the look of despair you had when your garmin battery ran out near the end and there was a possibility that you had lost the ride!
  12. The Loch Katrine road has been closed after some landslides a few months ago, and apparently there is some doubt as to whether it will reopen
  13. It has been a few years ago since we last did it as a club run but down to Mennock Pass and up to the radar station is one of the most memorable rides ive had. There was 7 of us out that day and i think everyone either blew up or was close to it at some point in the ride! Needs decent weather and a long summer day - big miles (130+), rolling grippy roads and pretty committing as there isn't much in the way of bail out options. From last year this was a cracker - could be done from the clubrooms https://www.strava.com/routes/21264510
  14. Medium please, can you pm me payment details
  15. I remember it too however havent heard anything since which i hope is a good sign!
  16. I'm not sure if he has signed up to the bunch yet but i passed on the details of the turbo night to a potential new member who was interested so he might be there - if not next week but in the future
  17. Not sure where feedback for the whatsapp proposal is to go. But here is mine. Personally i'd be reluctant for things to move to whatapp for a couple of reasons. First, large whatsapp groups can quickly become overwhelming (a bit like a chaingang!) and the messages with relevant content (in this case details of the club ride) often get lost. Second it is also not good for prospective members wanting to see what is happening with the club. Even if they are not yet signed up many will still read the forum before deciding to come out on a ride, if the club rides are organised and discussed in private then it excludes those not already in the group from participating (even if just as an observer at the beginning). Perhaps if an information group could be set up so only those who are admins can send messages then it might work out better? The messages would then include the details of the weeks ride (route, where and when to meet) but with discussion about it then being directed towards the bunch forum.
  18. Thanks for the tube and also helping to get the tyre back on the rim...Hopefully all forgotten for the Hamoc next year Enjoyable ride. Even if it was also one of my worst ever in terms of performance and getting dropped with every slight rise. It's going to be a long winter!
  19. Think it is my fault due to inbox being full, cleared some space now
  20. (Posting for Jesse as she cant log in to the bunch) Wahoo Kickr smart turbo for sale - £550. RRP is £999 so this is a great saving and the Kickr is in good condition. It has not been used much with Jesse now having other priorities than cycling at the moment! It is a smart trainer with ERG mode, has ANT+ and Bluetooth so can connect up to apps like Zwift, Trainer Road, Sufferfest etc. Goes up to a max power of 2200 watts which if you can do will be enough to win any Georgetown sprint 😁
  21. Wont be there next week but hoping to be there the week after
