    Denia 2020

    With the weather being as it is just a reminder to all club members that the Denia trip is still open for anyone who wants to go. The details are as above in Ian's post although the flight costs may have increased. At present we have 13 confirmed but there is still space at the hotel and bikes for hire. All that's required at moment is £150.00 deposit with remainder due 28th March. It's a great week and a real break from the weather we are having at present. If interested PM me for more details
  2. Club Weekend September 2020 The Old Bunkhouse Glassie Farm , Aberfeldy So after the success of the past 3 weekends to Kinlockleven and Peebles we have organised another for this year. We decided on a change of scenery and some new roads to ride on so this year we are off the Perthshire from 18th-20th September , 2 nights stay. I have booked accommodation in The Old Bunkhouse at Glassie Farm , outside Aberfeldy which gives is a terrific base to explore the area. We have the exclusive use of the place which sleeps up to 25 in bunk bed/single beds with a mixture of en-suite and non en-suite. Web site details below https://www.thebunkhouse.co.uk/ The format will follow the last two to Peebles with a morning start from Paisley up to the area where we go a ride before booking into the accommodation, Second day is the main riding day and In know that some of the Velo know this area so will be organising the routes for us. Sunday we play it be ear depending on the alcohol consumption on the Saturday night. We have previously eaten both nights in the digs which is a great atmosphere and good laugh, The format for the rides has been to split into 2 rings so that it caters for all of us. So don't be put off thinking that you will be dropped or hold anyone up that has never been an issue and both groups tend to do the same route at different pace. This is a great opportunity to have an old fashioned club weekend with like minded people and to see a part of the country you may never have seen or have only driven through on a car and has been well attended on the last 3 occasions. The cost for the whole bunkhouse is £1100,00 which is comparable with the £1000.00 Peebles cost last 2 years. If we fill all beds then it would be £44.00 for the two nights but based on past experience and numbers it should not exceed £60.00 If you are interested in going please confirm to me through the Velo Rides WhatApp ASAP. I am looking for a £10.00 non refundable deposit by end of January as I need to pay a £250.00 deposit by then and although I can pay it would rather not be out of pocket that amount till September. The balance is due 1 month before we go. Honestly this is a weekend not to miss as the banters good . I will also post on WhatApp group along with Bank Details SO COME ON LETS BE HAVING YOU
  3. Alternate run for Saturday. Those who are doing the Etape are heading down towards the Borders to do the Dalveen and Mennock passed https://www.strava.com/routes/18199677 start in Crawfordjohn and circular route of 40 miles with the iconic climb of Mennock Pass up to Wanlockhead Need to take your car and looking to start at Crawfordjohn at 8.30-9.00 This is a run to give good climbs rather than pace all welcome
  4. Possible run for summer. Long day out and earlier start but takes in some fantastic roads, climbs and scenery. And 2 café stops of course Not a Big Ring more a Long Day Ring Campsies & Trossachs.gpx
  5. I’m in. First run after hols😩. I’ll be able to take myself and one.
  6. I know a few different routes north of the river and would have no problem captaining this from the back of the bunch lol it would add on about 14 miles from Paisley as obviously I would get you at bridge My own thoughts are that sometimes mileage against time available puts us off longer rides. Middle ring are capable of 100 but not at BR pace This would open up huge amounts of routes on a Sunday but would be a fuller day and with a 8.00am start could perhaps make it more accessible for some Thats my thoughts
  7. Looking to join a cycling club and not sure? This last few days in Mallorca sums up what to me a good club is all about The banter camaraderie and Club Spirit has shone through No one left out , making new friends not just for this week but for hopefully a life time , being told your club kit is smart , knowing that your in that kit and that when your in it you are representing not just the club but the individuals who had the vision to start it Coming back to cycling after 30 years and 2 years later being with a group of like minded individuals who look out and cared for each other is to me what A Club is all about Chapeau Stevie and Ian I think we did the PVCC proud this week
