Catch you on the trails soon I’m sure.
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/
Ewan Evans has the tops at his work so get in touch with him if you are interested in buying a top or checking the sizing. His details below;

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
Why not inspire yourself to get out and ride with our GMBC 2017 photo calendars? It features a glossy A4 image each month plus a calendar grid to note down all the gnarly/easy/pub rides you’ll be doing. The photos were voted on by folks who attended the AGM and were taken by fellow club members. The locations include Torridon, Glen Tilt, Strathearn, Conic Hill and then exotic places like the Spanish Basque Coast…….. and Yorkshire.
The calendars are only £7 and they’re selling fast so what better way to grab a wee souvenir of the GMBC’s 30th anniversary year! (this sales pitch is almost as good as anything you’d get from Barry Mears!!). 😉
OK, I’m sold, how do I get one??
Just go to Webcollect and click on the GMBC Calendar 2017 in the Events box and follow the steps.
Please order your calendar promptly so we can get them distributed ASAP so you can enjoy the January photo of Tom Downie riding a wintery Lammermuir Hills with his daughter in a bike trailer!! I’ll arrange to distribute calendars on Wednesday rides. Here’s a sample of the calendar images…..

Hi, a friend is selling his 26″ Genesis Altitude 10, it’s had an easy life so is in good condition. Here’s the advert:
I have a brand new limited edition 25th Anniversary club top for sale. I bought a Mens Small MTB top (short sleeves) thinking it would probably fit, but it is way too long for me.
I will bring it along to the AGM tonight, so if anyone is interested, just give me a shout. Looking for £20 for it which is bit less than I paid at the time.
