There’s some cycling events on as part of the Glasgow 2018 European Games. Please note the time trial event on 08-Aug may cause traffic disruption on the roads near the club hall (although the event is due to finish by 3:15pm) so perhaps consider the train or cycling out from the city. At this point, the 7pm Intro Ride will still be on.

Just to confirm, the 7pm local Intro ride is on this week in case you don’t fancy the hike-a-bike up Ben Lomond. I’m mulling a Burncrooks expedition this week, maybe even a Whangie loop if there’s time and it suits the group.
We’ve been advised that there will be trail running events in Mugdock Park on Thu 14th and Thu 21st June (7 – 9:30pm both nights). If you’re riding on either of those nights then please be aware that you may be sharing the trails with more people than normal.

Hi, I’ll be along for the Tue 7pm ride this week. I’ll not be particularly quick but I’m planning on riding some techy trails while they’re so dry. I’ll also be along for the Wed 7pm Intro ride – and there’s a rumour that ex-pat, ex-club members Jo and/or Al Byford may make an appearance for the Intro ride.
