  1. Drymen_Callander_Aberfoyle-Drymen.gpxDrymen_Callander_Aberfoyle-Drymen.gpx Looking at an alternate ride on Saturday to a different part of the world using the cars. We would meet at Drymen and follow a route towards Aberfoyle through Port of Menteith and over Braes of Greenock into Callander ( café stop). We then follow the Invertrossach Road to Loch Eck we climb the Duked Pass north to south ( the easier side) before a drop into Aberfoyle. Onto the cycle track towards Gartmore and then a wee climb up The Pipe Track before another downhill to finish back in Drymen. I done this back in October and it was 3 1/2 hrs plus the café so say 4 hours. The pace will be to suit the slowest rider as there is 3200fr climbing in this where individuals to push on before regrouping. Will be subject to weather but it looks fine at the moment. Ideal miles for getting the fitness up and follows part of the Evans Sportive we are doing in April

    September Weekend 2019

    Right chaps. Bunkhouse is booked for 27-29!September. Same price as last year at £1000 for the 2 nights sleeping up to 28 I need to pay a deposit so if your going looking for £20 per head Based on last year it ended up at £65 each but hopefully based on feedback we will have more numbers Great area to cycle in and I’m sure that The Wall of Talla will be conquered by us again

    September Weekend 2019

    Guys I’m quite happy to organise the trip in September and I understand that from tonight’s meeting going back to Peebles would be good I’ve been in touch with them and the available weekend to take the place over is 27-29 Sept I’m looking to see if that suits and numbers. It’s £1000 for the 2 nights but it sleeps up to 28 and based on last year it was £55/ head
  5. Weather looks fair for Sunday Proposing to meet at Abbey at 9.00 and head out through Elderslie to catch the cycle track down to Kilbirnie. Head over the back road to Lochwinnoch Up first part Johns Hill and across to Kilbarchan before dropping down into BoW. Option here for cafe stop or head to Inchinnan along the Georgetown for stop at The Farm Then back to Paisley via Inchinnan and Love Street usual lights and mudguards and bring spare tubes and pump. Also money for cafe I’m only back after 8 weeks so will be a gentle pace and we stop at top of hill to regroup The route is on Velo WhatsApp
  6. Attached Wee Ring route for Sunday which takes in the quieter back lanes of Renfrewshire with cut out points for those who want to cut short as I know its the Christmas rush will be on. Cafe stop will be at The Farm on Inchinnan Road depending on time. Meet at Abbey at 9.00am . Usual Helmet . spare tubes and pump and lights and mudguards if you have them PVCC Wee Ring Route 5.gpx
  7. The weather for the weekend is looking pretty ropey with a yellow warning issued for Saturday and Sunday. I am therefore looking at a short local route only going as far as Langbank then up Station Road and along to catch the top of the Clunie. After that its a fairly straight route back through BoW and Houston. Café stop can be Bernies or The Farm at Inchinnan. Total distance is 33 miles. I was thinking we could combine the 2 rings and depending on weather/turnout the Big Ring could split at Kilmacolm and head over to Lochwinnoch for extra miles Will make the call on Saturday night and post up on Forum and WhatsApp Meet at Abbey at 9,00am where Dave will lead and if I'm fit I will be there. Usual spares etc and mudguards and lights if you have them PVCC Wee Ring 4.gpx

    Its a great week away and you will love the climbs which tend not to be steep but long usually 10km. If I can climb them anybody can.

    Wee Ring Route Sunday 4th November

    So will you be on it or sold out to the Larger side lol
  12. Wee Ring Route Sunday 4th November This weeks route is 31miles around the lanes of Renfrewshire Starting from The Abbey we head out to Kilbarchand via Elderslie and Johnstone. From Kilbrachan its back lanes up onto Carriethmuir before looping back round through Quarriers Village to the café stop at Bernies in BoW Then its out of BoW over Warlock Road and a loop which drops us into Houston Its back via Linwood and Ferguslie to the Abbey Make sure that you have the usual spares , food and water ( I like jelly babies) , helmet etc Looking at weather, mudguards may be the order of the day BUT if you don't have them please don't be put off JUST COME OUT. If you also have lights its good practice to have them on at this time of the year, Hope you turn out for what will be my first time as ride Captain on what may be new roads to a lot of you. See you all at 8.50am for 9.00am kick off https://www.plotaroute.com/route/712329 Wee_Ring_Renfrewshire_1.gpx
