We’re overdue a club trip/social. So, why not join some GMBCers & sign up for a weekend of riding & social activities at the GMBC-sponsored Single Speed UK event Comrie Croft? What’s the plan?
Fri. 23-Aug to Sun. 25-Aug.
- Friday – a couple of hours evening ride on local hills & trails – mid-ride pit stop at the pub in Comrie, return to the Croft to the onsite bar.
- Saturday – “race” day, it’s a very social & relaxed event followed by food, drinks, prizes, an auction, music & even more socialising
- Sunday – another few hours mellow, social riding and more banter
- Onsite facilities: camping, food shop, bike shop, cafe, toilets/showers
- Prizes provided by Genesis Bikes, Shand Cycles, Glenturret Whisky, Endura, Fibrax & more
More info: Comrie SSUK19 Facebook page and here’s a video of the 2017 version of the European singlespeed event, held in Scotland, so you get a flavour of the atmosphere.
Sign up at the SSUK19 Eventbrite site, £50 for racing, £35 for a non-riding ticket.
Anyone fancy a local ride on Thursday? The pace will be easy and the vibe will be sociable. Planning a mid-ride cafe stop too.
Local Ride: 27th Dec
It’s the festive mince pie and mulled wine ride this Wednesday. Whether you’re riding at 7pm or 7:45pm pop up to the lounge bar afterwards for a hot drink (tea also available) and some mince pies.

Perthshire Autumn Gold Ride (Pitlochry)
I am heading down to Innerleithen tomorrow to ride the Golfie. Plan on being there for 10am and ready to ride out shortly after that.
Weather is looking good, been dry for the last couple of days so hopefully the trails will be in good nic.
Trails are awesome fun, mainly black graded natural singletrack decents with fire road climbs to reach them.
I know it’s short notice but hopefully see some of you there. Post up if you coming 😃
Luke, Tim and myself are planning a bothy trip 27/28 October with this ride in. All you need is a sleeping bag, air bed, head torch and a bag of coal. This is the ride in:

I am looking at booking the ever popular Torridon weekend away trip for the 14-16 September this year.
- Drive up to accommodation Friday night approx 3.5/4 hrs drive
- Big ride on Saturday
- Return to accommodation Saturday night, chat, good times, food and drink.
- Smaller ride on Sunday
- Return home Sunday afternoon
Accommodation: Hopefully a hostel of some sort. TBC once we know numbers.
Distance: 45-50km, 1300m ascent. More can be added towards the end if we’re going well!
Terrain: Black grade. Rocky, very steep in places, some exposure, occasional drop offs. Distance adds extra difficulty – it’s harder when you’re tired!
