Saturday 26th September Resolis and beyond 2015

Eleven met at Maryburgh and set off to do something different - well at least off to have coffee somewhere else. Ken's suggestion was to head off to join in a MacMillan's coffee morning at Resolis Hall.  What a jolly good idea - and what a spread of cakes when we arrived.  Kevin and Stacey…

Saturday 19th September 2015 – The Loop

I had been thinking about this ride ever since I missed out last year. In June Clifford and I started plotting and trying to find a convenient date but the only day we could find that worked for us all was 19th September - surely this would mean that we would miss the whole of…

Saturday 29th August 2015

‘What are you doing this afternoon?’ John asked me during tea stop. Once everyone stopped laughing it was established that it wasn’t his attempt at a chat up line, but that it is my turn to write my first club run report. So here goes... With Fairburn House’s 30th anniversary open day today, there was…

Saturday 22nd August 2015

Gosh doesn't time fly when you are nominated to do the Saturday ride write up. This Saturday ride was attended by a group of about nine including a welcome guest Dave Stuart from Cromarty CC. The Old Master declared Cannich via Kiltarlity. We set off in good weather and rotated steadily through the group. It…

Saturday 8th August 2015

When I arrived at the roundabout I was surprised to see Keith there as it is a well known fact that they who live nearest are always the last to arrive. The mystery enfolded when he said he had miscalculated in that he mistook 8.45 for 8.15, so arrived 30 minutes early to find no…

Saturday 1st August, El Parrot denied sprint triumph!

You will be late, said Mrs El Parrot. Aye aye replied El Parrot. Well perhaps some action was indeed required. His Wilier had refused to leave the warmth of France, which meant El Parrot had pressed his winter bike into summer service. A simple removal of mudguards and wheel change. A 10 minute job that…

Saturday 25th July: Race for the Yellow Rain Jacket

Bit of a mixed forecast for today’s ride - could be dry, could be wet. Knowing how the ‘summer’ is going, we had all arrived with our water resistant clothing (except the Boatman who is a lot more hardy than everyone else). With the Skelly 50 taking place in the afternoon we were a bit…

Saturday 18th July: Conspiracy Theory 2015

With the usual showery forecast for the day I set off for the roundabout to find no-one else was there, just a bike leaning against the railings. Five minutes later Clifford the olde master appeared from behind the trees. He saw me in my Gabba gear and shoecovers and promptly disappeared back into the trees.…

Saturday 27th June: Cromarty

With Kevin stuffed with the cold and heading home that left 6 riders heading south up the Leanich for Cromarty, Clifford, Jim, Innes, Keith E, Keith H and myself. A slight tailwind assisted our progress toward Culbokie and thoughts turned to perhaps having a dry run that day as the morning sunshine shone down on…
