Week Day Rides

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 bike which is suitable for use off road, a spare tube, pump and multi-tool and some enthusiasm and a crash helmet.

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:

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

GMBC Cairngorms Easter Trip – 19th, 20th & 21st April

Reminder….

It’s that time of year again folks…it’s the GMBC Easter Extravaganza!!

Over the last few weeks, we looked at a few different destinations and venues but quickly realised places were booking up fast and also a tad more expensive than usual.  This is by far the biggest and largest subscribed club trip we do every year, so we had to find a place that could accommodate the potential for 20+ folk.

We have decided to revisit the Cairngorms; there’s loads of trails, varied riding from epic mountain paths with some extreme exposure, gnarly enduro trails to sweet flowing forest singletrack, café stops and a refreshing cold pint knowing that you’ve earned it.  And of course, it’s all about the bikes and the banter!

As it’s a 3 night stay, you actually have the option for 4 days of riding. If you wish, you can arrive Friday early get a ride in, Saturday and Sunday big days out, and if you or your bike isn’t broken by then, a Monday recovery ride.
