    Don Smith Memorial Ride 2019 is now live

    Anyone free over this weekend to check the short and medium routes for hazards/diversions/other for the risk assessments? I will be checking the long route on Saturday. We will also need a couple of volunteers to drive the short and medium route the day before the ride 02/03/2019 to check for hazards/diversions/other. Cheers

    9pm bunch about 20?? 7 Jets giving a lesson on how to ride your bike... Golfers/Runners take notes. Never saw the 9.30 bunch until soup time which was Delicious thanks Sarah and Greg! Rumors were the 9.45 were masquerading as the 9.30s as some 9.30s hide in the 9.00??? next week im in the 9.15 group;) Great ride today

    Endless film and TV bike criticism thread

    American Flyers is the greatest movie ever made! 2 seconds another classic, this ones for you Chung lots of bikey mechanicy talk(but might be a bit Artsey for you West of Scotland folks) Not one for the Vegans, 6 part documentary Slaying the Badger but what a story(although Lemond is full of ****) and lastly probably the most realistic cycling movie ever!

Route checking - Each of the routes requires to be checked against the Risk Assessment (which has been done) prior to the event, This would either be Friday, Saturday or early Sunday morning. Note that this can be broken into segments and spread around a number of volunteers rather than one person checking the whole route(s). We're generally looking for roadworks / closures / really obvious issues with quality of roads as riders are expected to follow the rules of the road and any official diversions in the case of roadworks, etc... Sign On Desk - Smiling and taking people's money as they register for the event. Required from 8:30am until latest 10:30am (Note that this would not preclude your from riding).

    Yeah I have set up the event on BC(draft) would be good if we could get last years risk assessment and other materials if available? Are prices staying the same? and can we get the Lochbarr Services place booked again please, I could do it but not sure if we have a contact there. The date is March 3rd @100%? Cheers
