Week Day Rides – Tuesday & Wednesday

Midweek club rides start from Milngavie & Bearsden Sports Club (see map below).  Routes and duration vary to suit the conditions.  Tea, biscuits, changing facilities and bike wash are available afterwards.  All you need is a well maintained off road suitable bike, a spare tube, pump and multi-tool and some enthusiasm.  During Autumn, Winter and Spring (Sept – April) you will also need a set of lights powerful enough to ride offroad which will last about 3 hours (for example)

Remember: no-helmet, no ride!

We have three mid-week rides to choose from:

  1. 7.00pm on Tuesdays
  2. 7.45pm on Wednesdays
  3. 7.00pm on Wednesdays (Introductory Ride – pace & distance to suit those present)

Summer classic: Cobbler + Glen Loin

Hi Guys,

Weather forecast for Wednesday looks good so I’m planning to do more technical stuff like Cobbler + evening ride (lights required ?!) on nice single track  “Allt Coire Grogain loop also known as Glen Loin” 

Any volunteers ??. Meeting point is a car park under the Cobbler – other days possible (apart from weekends which are reserved for smth longer) also weather permitted.

Cheers

Physio

Hey,

Someone recommended a physio for cyclists on one of the local rides a wee while ago. I think the physio was linked to a triathlon club. Looking to get hooked up for advice on shoulder injury.

Any recommendations welcome.

Cheers,

Fort William Weekend: 1st/2nd Aug

I’ll be up in Fort William with some friends from work.  We’ll be riding at the Nevis Range on the Saturday.  There’s a variety of trails there but my plans are to do an uplift day riding the Giant Red DH trail and maybe some of the enduro trails.  After an overnight stop in Fort William I’ll be heading home via a loop of the Devil’s Staircase & Ciaran Path from Altnafeadh in Glen Coe.

Saturday ride – Nevis Range

Sunday ride – Devil’s Staircase/Ciaran Path

If you’re interested in either of the day rides then let me know by posting up here so I know to expect you.  If you’re interested in the overnight stay in Fort William then let me know and I’ll see what I can arrange in a hostel.  Once I’ve made the booking for anyone who expresses an interest it’ll be up to any late joiners to sort out their own accommodation.  If there’s no hostels available then there’s always camping.

Proper summer rides – Shindig Route and Cairngorm Loop

I’ve put up two events in the calendar, both of which are 200km/1 day mtb affairs:

It will be the mountain bike equivalent of this

Looking for a team of 5 max to keep it quick.  If you’re interested post up on the event page.
