This Sunday will take us down the coast to Gourock. The plan is to stick together with the wee ring heading out. Up the cycle track to Port Glasgow, down the clune and following the road to Gourock. Sensible pace to this point please as it's a mixed group. With it being remembrance Sunday, we'll batter up the Lyle hill to the war memorial and will have a stop to pay our respects.
From there we'll head back down and have a cafe stop in Gourock. After that we'll leave the wee ring and head round to inverkip and up the greenock cut. Then over the back road into greenock and up the hill to kilmalcolm and home via BoW and Georgetown.
Just under 60 miles for the day with a few good hills. It looks like a sunny but freezing cold morning. Ideal winter cycling! Remember to wrap up and bring the usual essentials including mudguards!
See you Sunday
Just a quick note to keep you posted on the new committee. The list of guys who put themselves forward will be meeting to discuss individual roles and the general future plans. The planned date for this is the 28th of November. Ideally it would be sooner but this is the earliest possible date due to work commitments and holidays.
Once we've met, we'll be in touch with more details of plans for roles and responsibilities as well as details on priorities for the coming months and beyond.
Appreciate your patience in the meantime and we're looking forward to getting going!
Good numbers at the Abbey this morning with the majority going with the Wee Ring.
Middle / Big ringers were Terry, Don, Kevin, Geoff and myself and we set off with the Wee Ring and split from them just after Bishopton where we joined by ex Velo member John Downes who rode with us for a bit. Made rapid progress along West Ferry and Kevin due to time constraints split from us to go up the Clune and head back home as did John shortly after. Battering along the coast the remaining 4 of us soon arrived at The Bagel Basket in Largs just in the nick of time as the JWCC arrived just behind us en masse.
Cafe stop over The Haylie Brae beckoned and the least said about that the better! A rapid descent followed down to Kilbirnie and onto the cycle path homeward bound.
As always, a great day on the bikes with members looking out for each other.
