  1. ok thanks Aurelien. I called at the Boarding House today and spoke to one of the staff. All ok to lock bikes at the back or they might be able to bring some in. Recommend bringing a lock just in case leaving the Abbey 6:30👍
  2. Good stuff Aurelien Plan is to leave 630 from town hall Cheers Greg
  3. Does anyone fancy riding to the agm from Paisley? I am planning to so pleased if any other night owls wish to come along. Once agenda ready we can land on leaving time. Might be an idea to bring a lock unless they would be happy for us to bring bikes indoors? Cheers! G
  4. What time are we due to start sunday? Trying to plan round family commitments G
  5. Thanks again Dugald for all your efforts organising. What border is it? 😉
  6. 4 of us out today on a wee/middle ring combo. Tahir, Lee, Stephen and me decided on a local run which took us down to Bishy then back road to Gleddoch with the sharp nippy climb up Netherton road. We then did half the West Glen and dropped down to Kilmacolm. Further burnieness to follow with a steady climb up the classic velo haunt - Carruthmuir and then for a wee change we headed left and down the back lanes to Crossflat farm. Some nice 20 percenters on that stretch which tested the legs and built up a nice lactic feeling. Prize was a great cake and coffee at the Boarding House with excellent service as usual. Hats off to Stephen for his efforts today on a 25! Need to get a 32 mate or go Dave R and get 34 dinner plate!! Some good training for the Denia trip and great company as usual. Rock on with the velo!

  8. The Rubbish Ring! Thanks again to Dimitar for organising - every little helps and we had some supportive comments from folks passing
  9. Sorry to hear that Scott. We started at the same time and recall many a great run in the early days trying to hold Ronnie's wheel! Take care and hopefully maybe see you out on the road at some point G
  10. Well we knocked it off with the weather for the Fife run this weekend. 12 of us in total set out on a 60 mile circuit and took in the sights of the East Neuk and St Andrews. A cracking ride with lots of good quiet roads. Good efforts all round as pretty hilly and a stiff northerly wind for the first half which tested the legs. Tight and disciplined bunch riding throughout - a credit to the club. Well done guys and we might just do it all again next year! G
  11. Evening all, As promised I have amended the route to take account of the golf tourney that's on in St Andrews and Kingsbarns. Not a major change and we still stop off at the town. Avoiding the road between the golf courses as there are shuttle buses and park and rides there apparently all day: https://www.strava.com/routes/15737620 Scores on the doors re numbers - looks like we have the following 13 confirmed: Me Aurelien Aurelien's pal Dugald Gerard James Mark S Gavin Andy M Aiden Dan Mark H Dimitar Those in bold - many thanks as you are offering a space/s for a lift. We can sort who goes with who at the car park in Paisley. Mind the usual gels/food and spares/tools. We can agree if a split is needed/desired. St Andrew's for pit stop then back to St Monans and chips at Anstruther Weather looking good! catch you all Saturday 08:00 canal st car park sharp. G
  12. Apparently the Dunhill cup is on at st Andrews this weekend so will re-route the run a wee bit. Post it up soon
  13. quick update - the following are coming: Greg, Dugald, Aurelien, Mark G, Aidan, Mark S, Dan, Colin, Andy M, as well as former members Gerard and Matt H (look out your long sleeves Matt!). Transport wise so far we have confirmed (driver in bold) Gerard and Matt Greg and 1 other Dugald and 1 other Can other drivers please advise if taking the car and if happy to take a person/s? It looks as though we need 3 motors roughly. Load up the route onto the Garmins in case we decide to split into 2 groups (see earlier thread) cheers G
