[br]A bunch will be leaving Renfrew at 10 am on Sundays and heading round the coast to Ardrossan and back on the Lugton Road.

If anybody can't make the Anniesland on a Saturday then this would be a good alternative.




Whats the pace like on this run? I've heard some of you mighty kooriers are pretty fast - even at this time of year - would a washed out neverhasbeen be okay on this run

What is the arrangements for the Sunday bunch leaving Renfrew?

Is it the same route each week i.e. could I pick it up at Bishopton, or do the runs vary?

Is it 10am every week? When does that get you back to Renfrew (young family to deal with etc.)?

Finally what is the pace like, as I'm pretty unfit compared with 5 years ago? Is it similar to Anniesland i.e. steady then fast for last 30 miles? Is there a point where you wait on stragglers, any cafe stops (preferably not)?

Cheers lads

Alan,

We have just been deciding the runs as we go along, as it has been a smallish bunch. We tend to head down the coast a bit and then maybe Largs, Loch Tom, Loch Winnoch etc. There hasn't been any crazy stuff yet so I am sure you would be fine.

The next few weeks it might die away though because a few of us are away on holiday. If you are coming out this Sunday put a post on here. The only bunch "rule" is nae moaning and come along armed with a few crap jokes to warm everyone up!

I tipped the scales at 15 stone 5 weeks ago. I think it's more like damage limitation rather than a come back.

just so you know I was 10"10 when I stopped racing.

Now that's dedication to the beer

The falkirk Bicycle Club run on a Sunday now starts from The Station Hotel next to Larbert Station. All other details remain teh same however the club now splits into 2 runs with a more sedate ride at 16-18 mph and a hard training ride for the enthusiastic ones.
