In order to meet some of the minimum quantities for the top order from Pactimo, we had to by some extras. Therefore the following 30th anniversary club tops are available for club members to buy;
Men’s Continental 2.0 Jersey, Size L (fits small, so more like a M) £40.80
Men’s Trail SS Jersey, Size M £46.20
Men’s Trail LS Jersey, Size L £60
You can find more details on the tops – https://www.pactimo-custom.com/

After what seems an age, the 30th Anniversary club tops are now in our possession and they are looking good!
I’m away on holiday next week so Ewan Evans has stepped in to help distribute the tops to everyone who placed an order. He’ll be out on various weekday rides (and the skills training on Saturday at Cathkin), which he will post up about on Facebook or they can be collected from his work during the day. Address and contact details below, best to give him a call before you collect as he is out and about quite a lot.

All of the orders are individually packaged and have your names on them so it will be easy to find your top. There’s also a sheet with your order details to confirm. If there are any problems let me know.
There are also a few spare tops for sale which I’ll post up about separately.
The Pactimo shop is now open..finally!
The 30th anniversary club tops will be available to buy through the Pactimo shop until Tuesday 9th May.
To enter the shop, go to https://teamstore.pactimo.com/stores/select click my team store, then input glasgowmountainbike password in the below window
A few important points;
- ‘If people are using a visa debit, they should inform their bank otherwise their purchase transaction will be blocked by their bank as believing to be fraud. We are a US based clothing company and so banks will block the transaction to protect the client. When banks are informed prior to placing the order with us transactions go through with no incident. Please do inform the team otherwise their cards will be block. Visa and Master card are accepted but not American Express. ‘
- ‘ENTERED ORDERS CAN’T BE CANCELLED, if a wrong size is entered we can alter it BEFORE we close the team store but not after the store has been closed.’
- There are a couple of small errors with logo positioning on the tops shown in the shop. Don’t worry, these have been corrected for the production templates.
- Please do not ask Pactimo to re-open the shop if you are late to purchase a top. This delays the whole order for everyone.
The fit kit will be available for the last time at tonight’s ride (Wednesday 03-05-17) as I have to send it back tomorrow.
Any questions, give me a shout
We are now in the final stages of the club top design and will hopefully have the online shop open at the end of this week or the start of next week.

We will be offering the following tops;
S/S Continental Top – male/female
L/S Continental Top – male/female
S/S Trail Top – male/female
L/S Trial Top – male/female
Brekenridge WX-D Vest – male/female

Sizing Kit – I will make the sizing kit available at the sports club before and after the evening rides on the follow days;
Please let me know if you are planning on coming to try on the sizing kit. If anyone can’t make these dates get in touch and I’ll see what we can do. Other people trying on the tops can also give feedback on what the actual sizing is like.
More details to follow.
As most of you will be aware 2017 is Glasgow Mountain Bike Club’s 30th birthday. As we did for the 25th anniversary, there will the a 30th anniversary jersey to celebrate this.
We have been working on the new jerseys and enlisted the help of graphic design guru Mario Aquaro, who is currently putting the finishing touches to the design.
We will be using Pactimo as the supplier as we did in 2015 and purchases will be through their web shop again. We hope to have the shop open early-mid April (so don’t spend all your wages on bike bits just yet).
More details soon….
As some of you may already know GMBC are hosting a round of the Scottish Mountain Bike Orienteering series on 2nd of October. A few of us from the committee are undertaking the main organising duties but we are looking for some volunteers from the club both on the day and help with planning in the run up to the event.
We will be looking for help with checkpoint placing and collection, placing signage, checking riders in/out at the hall along with other tasks.
If anyone is interested in helping out then post up or get in touch.
We will hopefully have full details available and entries open by the end of the week.
I thought I’d have a stab at a write up of the Dunkeld Enduro, if you are interested read on…
‘one of the most technically challenging enduros the UK has ever seen.’ was the description bestowed upon the first round of the Scottish Enduro Series by Enduro MTB magazine, I’m glad it wasn’t just me who was in over their head! After some persuasion, I convinced Rich HB to join me on the trip to Dunkeld to throw ourselves down hills with 300 or so other mountain bikers all in the name of fun.
