Hello from Marina Cycles

Hi everyone, just wanting to introduce myself as the club’s new sponsor – Marina Cycles.I’ve been riding with the club since 2000, and so I’m really stoked to be supporting the club in this way.

As well as the discount (10% on most things) for paid up members, once covid begins to blow over I’m looking forward to hosting some ride-outs from the shop – Lennox Forest, Barrhill and Croy Hill and a load of loops up the Campsies and elsewhere (as well as post ride hose as well as the usual biscuits and tea available post ride!).

Also I’ll be offering club members an open night with a more substantial range of refreshments and there are some other events in the pipeline once things start to get back to normal.

If you’d like to pop in and see the shop, you can find me Tuesday to Saturday at:

Unit 4, McBride Avenue,
Kirkintilloch,
G66 1XP

I have a range of bikes including MTB, gravel, ebikes and more from Kona and Dawes for sale as well as full workshop facilities, and supply Shimano, SRAM, DT Swiss, Halo, Rockshox, X Fusion, Maxxis, Schwalbe, Continental and many more.

Alternatively, you can call 07720713701, email ladevrx@gmail.com, or message the shop on Facebook.

See you in store or on the trails soon!

Annual Fireworks Ride

Wednesday November 6th for the fireworks this year. 7.30 start time to suit all comers rather than the normal 7/7.45 split.

If you can, contact me (post here or on the FB group) to enable me to bring suitable volumes of mulled wine and hot dogs.

Bring your own firework.

Ciaran path, devil’s staircase ride

If anyone isn’t doing the first aid etc. and fancies a ride this Saturday (22nd April), I’m heading up to the King’s House Hotel to ride ciaran path via the devil’s staircase.

Good couple of options for mid- and post- ride refreshment, though be prepared for rocky technical trails (I’ll be taking pads) and obviously the usual weather.

Riding from 10.30 at King’s House.  Should be a good day out, the forecast is good!

Carn Ban Mor / Laggan

If anyone fancies it I’m heading up tomorrow (Sat 9th) to do (weather and stream heights permitting) Carn Ban Mor and then drive across to play at Laggan for a while.

I will be setting off at 10am prompt (with some food) from the car park up Glen Feshie. Post here if you are interested.  I have one space in the car currently, free petrol for anyone that comes along as I’m just running an errand really.

I need to be done by 4pm as I’m picking my daughter up at the cafe in Laggan at that time.

Post here or on the thread of Facebook if you’re interested.
