  3. Not done Cowal with you yet... what’s standard route... C11 included? Is there a cafe stop too? Hoping to fix front tyre tomorrow so I’m provisional for this

  5. I now have a night out on Saturday so I'm only provisional for this. But deffo up for Callander if I can drag my hungover arse out of bed in time
  6. Cracking day in the saddle with a big bunch of 10 on the Galston Leg Bender route. Forgot how tough some of those hills were! Great to be back out in a bunch again!! Hopefully be out again next week. I'll email details of who was there to Eric
  7. I'll take phone no's if you're not there Geo. Not too familiar with route once we get to Galston think I've only done it once (the Moscow Revolution ride?).

    ARRAN

    Thanks, I had no transport to travel to Ardrossan for the 7am ferry and didn't have a booking for the next ferry, so wouldn't be guaranteed a place on that. So planned to leave the house at 5am at a nice gentle pace to get there for about 6.30 and get on ferry. Trouble was, I woke at 4am to get ready and get a massive bowl of porridge down me, heard the rain outside so took one look at the rain radar and realised it was waaay to hazardous to get to Ardrossan in the torrential rain (attached screenshot - the yellow and red stuff was heading straight across my route), so it never happened. Rain wouldn't have gone off til about 8am and that appears to have been what happened so glad I put it off. Arran will always be there, I'll hopefully get this done by the time the timetables change in the autumn lol.

    ARRAN

    Yeah, will need to save energy for southern part of the island. Might stick on the aero bars on for use on the flats and see if that'll help lol. I don't have a power meter so tend to go by HR to see how hard I'm working and nae idea how to use virtual partner, but have a rough idea of where I should be at certain landmarks. Also one stone heavier than when I last did it so need to make up time I might lose on hills 😇

    ARRAN

    I'm booked for 07:00 ferry this Tuesday 11th August, and booked to return on the 13:55 sailing. Think there's still space left so any socially distant company is welcome. Looks like a northerly wind forecast, so will probably go anticlockwise. If legs feel good might attempt a solo SA, depends how much energy I've put into cycling to Ardrossan at silly o clock in the morning to catch the ferry since I tend to be late all the time lol. Should be a nice gentle tailwind down the western coast so looking forward to getting over there.
  15. Hi, the council is looking for the public's views on its proposals to use it's allocated Spaces For People budget for specific cycleways. Details and plans at: http://www.renfrewshire.gov.uk/SpacesForPeopleCycleways and the public are invited to email [email protected] with views by 26th July Thought it may interest a few of us! Best, Colin.

    @P McDonald Found some attire for the occasion when lockdown is lifted and we attack Arran. I'm opting for the yellow (copper) one. Shame there's no skinsuit... reckon the yellow one would go with our blue bibshorts...? https://www.thecyclejersey.com/collections/road-jerseys/Whisky
