  1. All the best. 2021 will be better 💪
  2. Dear Club Members Today, as our area has moved into Tier 3, the committee have reviewed the latest guidance. We note that the restrictions under Tier 4 were practically unworkable for club bunch rides, and that there is very little difference between Tier 3 and 4 restrictions. In line with other Scottish cycling clubs, we have decided that the best course of action, for the present, is to suspend all club activity until further notice. If you do go out on your bike please ensure you follow the guidelines, and be mindful that they are now enshrined in law. If you’re unsure about them, the latest information is here: https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/scotland/article/20200313-Scottish-Cycling-Coronavirus-COVID19-Guidance-0 . Johnstone Wheelers hope to return to the roads again soon, but for now there will be no further club runs or related activity. We are very active on Zwift - see the Virtual Rides forum on The Bunch, and further details in Main Bunch WhatsApp group. Keep safe - and we’ll gang forward again soon JWCC Committee
  3. Now ice here so won’t be out. May keep this in reserve for next week instead
  4. Assuming there is no ice, I am looking at 0930 meetup at Clubrooms for a tour of Renfrewshire (we're not allowed to ride out of the local authority area as we're still level 4). I've plotted the below route, as a guide: https://www.strava.com/routes/2770376452796050646 This takes us into Paisley centre, then up Neilston Rd and Calside, up the Braes to the Car Park In The Sky, then along the road past the trout fishery down to Newton of Belltrees, Lochwinnoch, up the Johnshill and then down the Barneigh hill towards Howwood. We turn off to Kilbarchan, over the hill to Bridge of Weir and Houston, then up to Langbank (the same as the hilly TT route), dropping down into Langbank, up station road (aye!) then up Netherton Road, the back road (Corsliehill Road) to Houston, then along the Georgetown to Bishopton, up Slateford Rd for a change, Erskine, Inchinnan, then back along the Georgetown heading back to clubrooms. Its ss close to 100k without visiting too many places twice as Bring your essentials, food + facemask incase you need to stop at a shop. Hopefully see you in the morn. Colin.
  5. Cheers Eric. I'm taking from this, that yourself and those who reside in Kilmacolm/outwith Renfrewshire are unable to join our bunch at the moment? It says Travel is OK informally but not for formal rides (maybe due to bunch size). So yourself and Colin couldn't come to clubrooms tomorrow? Or am I reading that wrong lol
  6. Members, we have received updated guidance from Scottish Cycling regarding club activity during the current pandemic with particular attention to areas in Levels 3 & 4. Specifically, until further notice club rides must stay within the boundary of the local authority (in our case, Renfrewshire). There are no changes to the group sizes which remain at up to seven riders in a club-organised bunch ride. We note that non-club organised rides remain at six riders from two different households only. Please adhere to these guidelines – the clubs reputation is at risk and the law would be broken by not doing so. Virtual bunch rides continue on Zwift – we now have a 'Virtual Rides' section on The Bunch, full details available in there. We hope members continue to abide by the guidelines, but for clarity: Any ride organised on The Bunch or the club WhatsApp Groups are club-organised with rider details sent to our Covid convenor, Eric. Any outwith this are not official club rides. See you Sunday for a Tour De Renfrewshire. JWCC Committee.

    Renfrewshire Lanes

    A quick gooe revealed a few answers. There were potential sites at back of Langbank and Lochwinnoch, as seen in yellow on the map in this document. But in terms of actual sites, they're in green and yes I believe its Warlock Road which is the other one. Only info I could find which was reasonably useful was here: http://www.wctrs-society.com/wp-content/uploads/abstracts/berkeley/G6/189/Microsoft Word - WTC leisure lanes.pdf
