    Hi there fellow riders, If you are new to our club - read this document If you have been with us for a while- read this document If you think you know it all - read this document. All to often confusion arises on our club runs over various issues from road position to changeovers/shouts etc. I have felt for a long time that we need a common approach and set of rules to help us ride more smoothly and ultimately safer that we can refer to. To this end I have prepared the attached document for your perusal. It is Version 1.0 so no doubt we will tweak or add/subtract from it as we go along. However, I do not foresee that we will need any wholesale changes to it. Please read over it and encourage others to do so too. No doubt we will chat about over the coming weeks. I hope you enjoy it and please forgive my questionable sketching skills!! Thanks for your attention Regards Derek McBurnie PVCC Bunch Riding 2019.pdf

    Hi Daniel, I was wondering if the outing would be on due to the weather. That's no problem, I will come along next week. Plan on doing a shorter local route tomorrow to stretch the legs. Thanks, Stuart.

    Hi Stuart, I would advise not to go out tomorrow as the weather is certain to have a significant impact on any rides - the wind strength being the main issue. Save it for another day when you can enjoy it more. Regards, Daniel

We will leave Kilbirnie and head to Beith onto Gateside and over towards the Canny man where we will head onto the B776 and head to Howood via Bowfield and head back to the Abbey via Johnstone and Elderslie. Approximately 32 miles and 1340 ft. of climbing. Bring a helmet, spare tubes, tools, nutrition and a drink Plenty fluids. Money for coffee/tea, and a mobile phone......and your bike!!

    Hi Stuart, That's all good - you are more than welcome to join in on a Sunday club ride anytime. If you are planning to join us this Sunday just watch over the next few days as this Sunday does not look too good at the moment weather-wise. The wind pressure is forecast to be quite strong which if so will have an impact on all club rides. We will keep you updated. Regards, Daniel

    Hi all. With my participation of club rides and events being almost non existent over the last few years i have decided not to renew my membership. I am not sure of how i delete my profile on the website ??? So if the powers that be could get this sorted that would be very much appreciated. I just want to say a massive thanks to all I have had the pleasure of riding with and wish you all the very best for the future. Regards Scott Nelson.

    Hi Stuart, A warm welcome - and no problem at all, We have a wee ring which is specifically for those that are new to club riding, or are coming back after a period of inactivity, or are returning from injury. This wee ring caters for all riders regardless of pace and ability - though naturally we would always advise that you have at least some form of riding experience - which could be as simple as going out yourself a few times. For club rides we typically allow you to join us for around 3 rides before having to officially join the club as a member. This gives you a non-committal opportunity to get a feel for how it works and then you can decide if it is something you wish to pursue. If it makes it easier for you we can get you out for a 1-to-1 session to cover the basics for you and to help get you started. Club rides are every Sunday morning and if you want to do a 1-to-1 session we can get something organised for you at a time that suits. Let us know what you prefer to do and we will help get you started. It is actually a really good time to get started at this time of the year. Regards, Daniel

    I would like to Join the Club, I had initially contacted through Facebook but felt this would be more appropriate. I have spoke with Colin Sales who has highly recommended the club to me. I have been a bit hesitant due to never cycling in a bunch before and if my speed is up to the pace.

    Hi Annual fees of £25 are due no later than the 31st January 2019. Ideally these should be paid by bank transfer with your name as the reference, alternatively payment can be made in cash on the Sunday runs to the ride captain. If anyone requires bank details then drop me an e mail [email protected] Cheers G

    So, the last Wee Ring Run of 2018 will be out past airport, through Inchinnan round back of Erskine through Bishy out to Houston and then BOW. Bale out option here for cycle path back to Paisley for a 26mile or so run. For more miles and a wee climb we will head out from BOW along Torr Road onto Kilmalcolm road for our wee fave climb then dropping back down into Howwood and back to Paisley for around 35miles in total. Option of a cafe stop in the Little Coffee Company on Causeyside St. Hope to get my bike fixed tomorrow and be ready for this run. Remember all the usual kit and off course mud guards which are compulsory in the winter months. C u then troops Derek

    Good wee winter’s ride today with Andy T, Matt, Tahir, Dave B, Michael and myself. We stuck to the planned route but had a brief stop at Bernies for a cuppa. Dave, baled out at Houston and Matt had to get home sharp after Bernie’s so hit the cycle path home. The rest of us carried on up Torr Road and over the hill back to Houston. I want to thank the guys for being patient with me on the hybrid but hopefully I didn’t hold them back too much! Must get my road bike fixed ASAP. A couple of thousand calories for me and a right hard workout on the heavy bike so a good way to end the year. Hopefully see you on the Ne’erday run troops. Ciao for now Derek

    Thanks Dugald, the file won’t open for me. Is this the same for others? One wee thing to point out is that mud guards are compulsory in the winter months. This is critical for bunch riding in wet and muddy conditions so I must insist on this. See you tomorrow Derek
