It’s time for the annual assault on Balmaha. The sign up form can be found below. Deadline to sign up is
end of Tuesday 15-Feb. [EDIT: cut-off was incorrect on the original post – it is now the morning of Wednesday 16-Jan and the trip is on 09/10-Feb]
Meeting at Bullands for breakfast about 8.30- 9am, cars can be parked at clubhouse. Then it is a gentle pedal to Balmaha out the WHW.. loads of chat about nothing.. This is a social spin out and is about 40km with the option of doing Conic Hill. There will be a lunch stop in Drymen.
We then stay at Balmaha for the night where you can get something to eat at the Oaktree Inn and a few beers or can cook your own at the hostel. Then pedal back on the Sunday at your own pace.
How to book:
Price will be about £25 per person. Space for only x14 people at the hostel. Your space isn’t confirmed until you’ve paid for it.
Payment details: BACS transfer only
A heads up for this coming Sunday about a local ride. Please note there are 2 start points & times for this one;
- 9am in the club car park, or
- 10am at Mugdock visitor centre (just at the entrance to the courtyard area)
If you start at 9am from the hall then you’ll need to get yourself up to Mugdock visitor centre for 10am where I’ll meet you. (I need to finish my ride at the visitor centre so that’s where I’ll meet you to start with). The ride will include a cafe stop.
Mugdock Sunday Local Ride
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 😃
