  1. Rescheduled from September, we will be meeting at Amaretto’s in Bridge of Weir, riders will set of in mixed capability groups round the coast to Largs, first bunch off at 09:30. The route will be up the cycle track to Port Glasgow, over the wall and down the Whin, then round the coast from there, riding at the pace of the slowest rider in the bunch. Sufficient numbers should see multiple groups of 12 to 16 riders, around 5 minutes apart. Once we know the numbers, it’s probably a good idea to let the Bagel Basket know that a number of cyclists will be turning looking for sustenance. After the Bagel Basket, riders are welcome to revert to their normal groups and choose their own route back to home or Amaretto’s.

  4. I thought the record was at 1:18? Could be wrong.
  5. 14 riders entered the event on a cool, blustery morning. Results as follows. Andy Ross 00:02:34 Colin Edgar 00:02:25 Diane Gray 00:02:48 Chris Marsh 00:01:54 Ritchie Provan 00:01:53 Rob Gunson 00:01:34 2 James Ross (J) 00:01:53 Murray Gray (J) 00:01:56 Evan Marsh (J) 00:01:58 Fraser Anderson (J) 00:02:18 Ruari Mulholland (J) 00:02:18 Sam Edgar (J) 00:01:43 3 Jamie Thomson (J) 00:01:27 1 Jann Lapsley (Ebike) 00:01:45 Congratulations to Jamie on retaining his title from last year, and to Jann as the first ebike entry to take part. Maybe next year, we can have a few more ebikes taking part. Well done to all the riders, this really is a brutal little climb. Big thanks also to our Marshalls and timekeepers on the day, and to the support.
  6. The annual Hill Climb Championships will take place on Sunday 3rd October, 09:30 meet for 10:00 start. Unfortunately, Renfrewshire Council have not responded to my road closure request, so unlike previous years, the road will remain open. This sadly means that the Jets will not have their own event on the day, although that should not prevent the senior Jets from entering the club championship and providing stiff competition to the grown ups. Like all events, I will need a volunteer to timekeep at the finish, and a couple of Marshall’s at the top and bottom of the hill. I will timekeep at the start. Post event, riders are more than welcome to go off on a run somewhere.
  7. Between the September weekend and the school October break, the whole club run to Largs is rescheduled to 24th October. Meeting at Amaretto’s in Bridge of Weir, riders will set of in mixed capability groups round the coast to Largs, first bunch off at 09:30. The route will be up the cycle track to Port Glasgow, over the wall and down the Whin, then round the coast from there, riding at the pace of the slowest rider in the bunch.

  10. So far, I’ve had exactly 4 people confirm they will be out. I get that this week is the September weekend, next week the hill climb champs (maybe!) the following two weeks are the October schools holidays, so if this slides, it will be to 24th October.
  11. That should make the actual event a bit tasty ….
  12. So far, we have one rider and one timekeeper. We really can’t run an event like that, so if I don’t have another timekeeper and at least 2 more riders by 5pm on Tuesday, this event will be cancelled.
  13. 26th September sees our first planned Whole club run of the year. Meeting at Amaretto’s in Bridge of Weir, riders will set of in mixed capability groups round the coast to Largs, first bunch off at 09:30. The route will be up the cycle track to Port Glasgow, over the wall and down the Whin, then round the coast from there, riding at the pace of the slowest rider in the bunch.

After the Bagel Basket, riders are welcome to revert to their normal groups and choose their own route back to home or Amaretto’s. I will need a number of bunch leaders on the day to keep the bunches together. I will not be attending this ride as I’m away for a week. I am also aware that this is the September weekend, and large numbers may be away, so if there is a strong preference, I am happy to slide this run to 10th October.
