Midweek club rides start from Milngavie & Bearsden Sports Club (see map below), which is a short bike ride from the station. There’s no need to join GMBC to come along to your first few rides. The routes and durations vary to suit the conditions & those present. 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, Solar Storm lights or these from Planet X/Magic Shine.)
Remember: no-helmet, no ride!
We have three mid-week rides to choose from:
7.00pm on Wednesdays (Introductory Ride – pace & distance to suit those present)
It’s been a while since we had a club social and what better way to celebrate all the recent GMBC successes than with a trip down the pub! So why not join us this Saturday in the upstairs bar area for some food, drinks and banter…
All welcome, just comment below to let us know if you can make it along.
At the end of last year, concerns were raised around some of the practicalities of our clubhouse venue. The committee listened and over the last few months, we have been in contact with several different venues to ensure that the club’s requirements can be met and have found, what we believe to be a fantastic premises!
Situated on Gavin’s Mill Way (via the road into Tesco Milngavie), Gavin’s Mill (run by volunteers) operates as a fair trade shop and café owned by the Gavin’s Mill Community Project and is described as “a Scottish Charitable Incorporated Organisation, which aims to look after Gavin’s Mill as a community resource, and to work with local community groups to develop it into a centre for sustainable food and crafts, building on the heritage of the Mill and its surroundings.”
From early discussions, we were delighted with the Mill’s ethos and enthusiasm to work with local groups as well as being open and amenable to meet our club’s requirements (e.g. enabling us to fit a new tap so we can wash our bikes!)
