New Home for GMBC

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.

Hopefully see some of you there, post up if you are coming along.

Emergency SMS

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.
