    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.

    Hi guys 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! Cheers Andy

    Hi all, AGM report attached for your review and information. Section 6 has a list of the discussion points that came up. Clearly we need to get the committee positions sorted soon as we need to advise Scottish Cycling and CTT of our new secretary details this month. Thanks to the people who have stepped up to join the new committee. Support them PLEASE! Derek PVCC AGM Report 2019.pdf

    This week see's the start of the winter runs and week 1 for Wee Ring . Leaving the Abbey, we'll head through Bishopton, West Ferry and along to Clune up Clune regroup then onto Kilmacolm, Bridge of Weir , cafe stop will be at Coach House ( does nice rolls reasonable priced ) and then we have a few options , into Kilbarchan, or Georgetown or cycle path then home , Captain Dave Barr will have a chat see what you would like to do Weather's looking OK at this stage but as is always the case (especially over the winter months) this route is subject to change. Winter months also mean mudguards on bikes...no excuses now, the Velo police will be watching 😉 ! We regroup top of hills , only as fast as slowest cyclist , we start together we finish together Meet at 8.50am at the Abbey bringing the usual stuff...gels, food, phone, tools etc with the usual club rules applying.
