Midweek club rides start from Stewart St Car Park in Milngavie (see map below). Routes and duration vary to suit the conditions. Tea, biscuits and bike wash are available afterwards. We have two mid-week rides to choose from:
- 7.00pm on Tuesdays
- 7:45pm on Wednesdays
I’m planning to do a ‘slow to medium’ pace mtb ride this Sunday, starting at the parking area at the corner junction of Quarry Road and Old Drove Road, Cambusbarron – OS Landranger map 57 ref. 773924. I’m planning to be flexible and see how it goes, but my general idea is to take singletrack, and a bit of B road and landrover track ‘west’, then ‘south south west’ past the quarries, eventually travelling south down the west side of North Third Resevoir to ref.757882 just south of the resevoir. Then continuing round, and northwards, taking singletrack with various natural technical sections, along the edge of the ridges, to ref. 761905, then back to the quarries. I’ve done some of this in the dry earlier this year, so I’m not 100% on the route, and I think if damp the rootiness will prove tricky, so can’t guarantee and entire circuit if the going slows me up – shorter options can be decided upon during the ride. I just need to get out on the bike!
Anyone welcome – please post here if planning to join me. Definitely bring warm gear, extra layer, waterproof, tubes, emergency first aid kit, spare energy supplement, and food – will be cold and damp. Happy to hit pub for a quick drink afterwards. If weather deteriorates badly in the meantime I will cancel.
Cheers – Nigel

I’m going riding tomorrow morning if any one is off and wants to join me? Road or MTB, not fussed.
Have to be home by 10.30am latest, so needs to short and sweet – 8.30am ready to ride at St Andrews.
Weather looks a bit iffy so it’s not a day to be standing out or riding for ages!
Short notice I know, but is anyone heading to the club for the 7.45 ride tonight? I’ll head along anyway. Cheers, Pete

Hoping to head up Cathkin for a ride at about 12 tomorrow hoping for three laps and a relatively chilled out pace.
On Tuesday I’m going to head out a local round mugdock during the day for a ride.
If anyone is also lucky enough to be and wants to come the more the merrier.
Seeing as it’s got very cold and thoughts are turning to 2014 I thought I would post this. I did a couple of these last year (along with Ross) and they were excellent.
I’m pretty keen on the 400km and the Rivers, Lochs and Glens. Anyone want to join me? All are really cheap (£2 for the 400km!).
Usual local Sunday ride (24/11/13). I’m not going to have the opportunity to do many more of these before I leave Glasgow, so definitely need to get myself out there.
There will be a cafe stop, everyone welcome.
