  1. Hi folks, proposing Dunoon via RABT this Sunday, roughly 100 miles. Meet at Clubrooms 0900 and south side of Erskine Bridge at 0940. Likely a quick toilet stop at Helensburgh where there is a bailout point if you're time barred or not up for the ton. Head up to Arrochar via Faslane over the rest, quick coffee at the top and then descent the main road (avoiding Hells Glen unless you really want to do that lol) and through Strachur to Dunoon. Return either via West Ferry / Bishopton (which is not a bad shout) or if you want more hills then up the Clune or the Whin, can decide on ferry. Bring some food too it can be long miles without a cafe but I’m sure we’ll stop at Sheilas Let's keep a nice tight bunch, regular spells, if you're at the front check no one is dropping back behind you and reduce your pace to keep everyone together. Equally if you're off the back - shout so we can pass the message on to ease up. A decent sized well-organised and disciplined bunch will help get us all round hopefully in good time. Expected return to Gourock 3pm so back in Johnstone at the back of 4. Route: https://www.strava.com/routes/2856498711421507998 See you there! Colin.
  2. Nice one George, I’m in. Get you at clubrooms
  3. Hi Dan, can you PM me your full name and number and I’ll get you added shortly. Cheers, Colin.
  4. Yip should make this. See you there!
  5. Hi folks, 9am at clubrooms and 9.40 at the Erskine Bridge (south side) for a jaunt across the water along through Helensburgh and past Faslane to Kilcreggan. We'll join up with 30milers to Helensburgh or Faslane (depending on who from 30milers wants more miles). Suggest we keep the water on the left and we take on the Coulport climb after the cafe in Kilcreggan. Return via Glen Fruin or back the way we came - can discuss at cafe on the day. Circa 80 miles. See you Sunday Colin.
  6. I was going to suggest incorporating a ferry or five in the coming weeks since weather finally getting better. Can't wait! I am at a friends Saturday night so hopefully won't be too rough on Sunday and hope to catch you at half 8. Looking forward to this!
  7. Will likely tag along as far as Helensburgh/Rhu or thereabouts (as long as its dry lol), need to be home sharp on Sunday. Great route though! Worth phoning ahead to the cafe at Kilcreggan (if its open!) to let them know how many cyclists are coming, perhaps call when stopped at Erskine Bridge - I recall the service there has historically been a bit hit n miss lol.
  8. I’m thinking about doing some MTB here and there. Wondering if anyone here has one for sale? Full sus preferred.
  9. I will do similar distance on this shitey peloton, hopefully at same time. Is it possible to stream these Zwift rides so everyone can watch/listen?

    Gerard D going fast down Main Road (B789) hill in Langbank today as I was huffing and puffing my way up it in the pishing rain 😓 lol
  11. Cheers for that! I'm leaning towards the 530. Thank you
  12. So some of you will know I've been cycling (properly) for about 10 years now, 5 years on my tod, and 5 of those with a club, with two most recent years with JWCC. Was using an app on my iPhone (not strava) to log my rides at first, then discovered the joys of a Garmin in 2016. Now, 4.5 years later my 'trusty' Edge 520 is on its last legs so I'm looking to upgrade come payday. I love big long.... days in the saddle 😆 like door to door round Arran, maybe even a mythical DA some time soon, so ideally I want something compact/similar size to the 520, but with longer battery life. I'm immediately looking at the Edge 530... but has anyone got any other recommendations? Don't want to spent any more than £300. An alternative would be to just use Strava on iPhone until April when a newer Garmin Edge would be due to come out (530 plus or 540)? Any advice you have would be great. Cheers

    So sorry to hear this Davie. Whilst I have no photos, I do recall enjoying your chat and banter over the last year or two that I've been a member. It was clear from the outset that you absolutely love cycling. I hope you get loads of enjoyment out of the ebike and I wish you all the best with your treatment. Colin.
