Midweek club rides start from Milngavie & Bearsden Sports Club (see map below), which is a short bike ride from the station. There’s no need to join GMBC to come along to your first few rides. The routes and durations vary to suit the conditions & those present. Tea, biscuits, changing facilities and bike wash are available afterwards. All you need is a well maintained bike which is suitable for use off road, a spare tube, pump and multi-tool and some enthusiasm and a crash helmet.
During Autumn, Winter and Spring (Sept – April) you will also need a set of lights powerful enough to ride offroad which will last about 3 hours (for example, Solar Storm lights or these from Planet X/Magic Shine.)
Remember: no-helmet, no ride!
We have three mid-week rides to choose from:
7.45pm on Wednesdays
7.00pm on Wednesdays (Introductory Ride – pace & distance to suit those present)
It’s that time of year again folks…it’s the GMBC Easter Extravaganza!!
the last few weeks, we looked at a few different destinations and
venues but quickly realised places were booking up fast and also a tad
more expensive than usual. This is by far the biggest and largest
subscribed club trip we do every year, so we had to find a place that
could accommodate the potential for 20+ folk.
We have decided to revisit the Cairngorms;
there’s loads of trails, varied riding from epic mountain paths with
some extreme exposure, gnarly enduro trails to sweet flowing forest
singletrack, café stops and a refreshing cold pint knowing that you’ve
earned it. And of course, it’s all about the bikes and the banter!
it’s a 3 night stay, you actually have the option for 4 days of riding.
If you wish, you can arrive Friday early get a ride in, Saturday and
Sunday big days out, and if you or your bike isn’t broken by then, a
Monday recovery ride.
