Well done to the lads who went out today. Low numbers but not too surprising given the weather this week and into the weekend.
Nevertheless, we had Ian, Terry, Big G, Andy T, Davy, Aiden and myself at the Abbey and decided the big ring would head for Largs. I was looking for a shorter run and Aiden wasn’t firing on all cyclinders with a bit of a cold so we planned a shorter route. We rode together till we hit Lochwinnoch but were pretty wet at the time as heavy rain had come on around Howwood. Aiden and I split off there and headed up John’s hill and out to Kilmalcolm thereafter turning back through to BOW and back along the Georgetown. Nice wee 35miler and it was actually quite nice when the sun came out, but pretty gusty I have to say.
After a brief stop at Castle Semple to let the rain ease the lads carried on to Largs then round the coast taking in 2 cafe stops on their journey. Over 60 miles for these guys but major kudos to big Andy Taylor who did some extra miles and clocked up a ton! Well done big chap.
See you all out soon.
Ciao for now
So the weather has continued to be poor again throughout this week, and although tomorrow is looking to be dry with some sunshine, it is still going to be very cold with high wind and heavy gusts. There is also likely to be some form of residual impact from the poor conditions today.
As per last week if you are planning to go out please monitor the chat group to see who else is interested. Anyone who is going out will meet at the Paisley Town Hall at 9:00am as per usual. There is no defined route as it will be decided in the morning depending on numbers, conditions, and preference. If some do go out I would advise a route that offers some protection and is not overly exposed (particularly to the wind) - probably local and not too far.
It won't be long before the better weather comes in and we can all get back to business as normal.
Weather Dependent so keep an eye on WhatsApp. Dark Ring Fast Bunch Hillington Loop Thursday night (14th March 2019) leaving the Abbey for 18.45 Sharp LIGHTS ARE ESSENTIAL.
Propose to do some different types of efforts and group splits. Pace is high and groups might be split depending on numbers/ability on the night.
