Some good news for you this week, we’ve secured a new club house/meeting point. From 10th November, we’ll be meeting at Jaw Brew Pub in Milngavie next to the railway station on a Wednesday evening. Jaw Brew | Scottish Craft Beer Brewery in Glasgow
There’s parking around the back (26 Crossveggate, G62 6RA) and as well as outdoor and indoor seating, and a place to have a pint or a coffee post ride, Mark at Jaw Brew has kindly provided us with facilities to wash bikes post Wednesday night rides, so no more packing dirty bikes onto cars.
Looking forward to seeing you all there. We’ll kick this off with a “Bike and a Pint” event on Wednesday 10th November when we hope to do a 2 hour ride around Mugdock, followed by a drink at the pub. See you then.
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. Covid restrictions permitting, 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.
The GMBC 2022 jerseys are now available to order in either XC or Enduro style. Short sleeved jerseys are priced at £40 and long at £42. Plus if you sign up as a member for 2022 (details to follow shortly), you’ll be entitled to £10 off (per person). Place your orders before December 20th using the link below. We’ve got GMBC buffs too available for £8.
I suppose I could call it rough stuff, and get rid of the marketing bollocks, but here we are, and I haven’t. Sunday 28th. Be there or be lying in bed with a hangover/getting your bed jumped on by the kids.
It’s that time of year again, and the 2021 AGM is to be held at our new home, Jaw Brew in Milngavie on Wednesday 24th November. We’ve seen lots of new faces this year which has been great, so we’ll hopefully get to see you at the AGM too when we play that annual game of “what do people look like without glasses and a helmet”.
Papers will be sent out to members later in the week but pop the date in your diary – 7-9 pm Wednesday 24th Nov
To celebrate local bike shop day, there will be an Alley Cat in the afternoon, or a small balance based challenge for those wanting a quicker bit of in store fun – all welcome – and also a members-only open evening. Hope to see lots of you there! Luke
I found this on a British Cycling article and thought I’d share it in case anyone else thought it could be useful (for bike rides or family who have hearing or speech impairments). It describes how to sign up to be able to send an emergency message by SMS, for example you have an incident in a remote area and only have enough signal to send an SMS.
