What was traditionally the fast 10am ride has moved to 9:30am at the Commonwealth Pool. This is the ride which most Premier Calendar Riders as well as strong riders partake in.

The Renfrew mob will be going out tomorrow at 10am.

Route is approx 60 miles over back roads towards Greenock, then over to Lochwinnoch.

Usual suspects (Big Les, Black Boab, Kooriers and Bloom).

Not a good run for beginners.

New Saturday ride starting in the Stirling area. 60+ miles, 9am outside the old pool. Brisk pace. Usual club runs are still starting from the pool at 10. The new run is intended to be a bit longer and a bit tougher .

Is the Saturday AM run around the 3 lochs from Anniesland cross departing 10 am still the same as ever ? Do you have to be a proper local to blend in ?

Renfrew Bunch
Is there a usual route you do ? I am looking to join you but would jump in en route as I'd be coming from Largs.

Cheers.

Looking for an early run on Saturday.

Are there any runs that leave around 8am? (Glasgow, EK, Lanark?)

Will be coming out from Cumbernauld so would need to be finished by around 11am to get back for noon.

Ta,

Grant

Kilmarnock - Walkers Cycling Club

10.00 a.m. start from Walkers Cycling shop in Kilmaurs every Saturday. Runs usually include a coffe stop en route and can be anything from 35 miles plus. Moderate paced and quite sociable.

Hi there,
I've just moved through to Strathclyde Uni, and the Anniesland
Glasgow bunch seems to be just down the road from me. I'm a reasonable rider but far more of a trackie than a roadie. Is this run still on and if so where exactly does it meet ?

Thanks for all the help !

It doesn't start until January and runs until March.

The Gales are having club rides from Anniesland on Saturday mornings leaving Anniesland Cross at 9.30am round Sinclair Street if you are interested. Nothing pacy.
