    Codg1e reacted to thejanullrichdietplan in Your favourite long day on the bike   
    It has been a few years ago since we last did it as a club run but down to Mennock Pass and up to the radar station is one of the most memorable rides ive had.  There was 7 of us out that day and i think everyone either blew up or was close to it at some point in the ride!  Needs decent weather and a long summer day - big miles (130+), rolling grippy roads and pretty committing as there isn't much in the way of  bail out options.

    This is interesting reading, very much on the pulse.  We are a great club with lots going on and this needs to be communicated, it is why we are members.  We all love cycling and we are busy people (so many Strava segments) and this will always have people collectively seeking convenience. Right now I use a WhatsApp group to organise my Tuesday runs, it works well.  But I have become aware that it is not in the spirit of the club so I will be posting my runs back on the Bunch as well, where all club members can view and participate.  I am open to progress in the future, if needed, so let’s have the discussion to find out what people feel they need to get the most from the club.

    I think a WhatsApp group would only work for those who regularly post rides, just to agree a route and leaving time (not to say no one else can post a run, of course they can, this is just for club runs) Then the agreed route gets posted on The Bunch and linked to from the club's social media, so the main place for anyone to check for a ride will still be The Bunch (not everyone has FB, insta, twitter - some people don't even have Strava lol) so this is still the best place to check.

    My first time entering this event, marking my one year anniversary of joining the club.  Thought the finish line was further up the hill so saved some in the tank for that.  Well, that's my excuse anyway 
    Thanks to all organisers and helpers.  Great wee morning!!

    Wide open this year
    Cedric in Portugal, Sam in Mallorca, Robbie in hibernation, Stuart unable to make it,  Marc and Galeb possibly boycotting, Ian doing the Lyle hill climb. So that leaves the big question....Is there anyone left who can beat the new slimmed down Charlie?
