Folks, further to my earlier post, there some chat going on behind the scenes regarding the low temperatures and the safety aspect of heading out this weekend.

There is going to be a decision taken tomorrow over whether to run the weekend rides. so please keep an eye on the forum as there is an outside chance the rides may be cancelled.

Morning,

Leading the Int Ride this weekend, route is below;

www.strava.com/routes/11343086

Forecast is dry but hardly above freezing all day so am purposely keeping this route low, and on fairly main roads. Leaving the Peak @ 10am.
Out via Chalmerston and onto Thornhill, climb the Big Brae's, back along to Deanston along the Teith, Doune, Dunblane and then Causewayhead.

As mentioned, dry but cold. Please bring suitable food & drinks for the ride, tools & tubes and the mandatory helmet.
Mudguard would be appreciated, and probably a good call to atleast have a rear light fitted.

Shortish distance for the Int Ride this weekend, so a good reason to step up from development. Looking at just over 60Kms / a nip under 40miles with the target speed of 14-15mph average although as always, happy to drop that if anyone is having a bad day. Start as a group, finish as a group with the climbs being the exception!


Cheers,

D.
