Draft Scottish Cycling Events 2015

As Club Secy. I have had an email from Janette Hazlett with the draft events for 2015. Some of these may not appear as yet on the BC calendar but may be useful if you are planing your races for next year.

I have copied the email which explains it better than I would,

To:  Event Organisers
        Club Secretaries

Please find attached a spreadsheet which has

·          Details of all the Championship and Road and Track Dates for 2015 (Sheet 1)
·         A Draft Calendar for all SC events during 2015 
 (Sheet 2)

During the course of the next month organisers will be putting the events onto the BC  calendar but if you want to share this information with your club members please do so.  Remind them that the Draft calendar  is only a draft and to check the BC calendar to make sure that the event is happening.    (Thought this might be useful for your members to plan their busy racing seasons).  If the event is currently showing in PINK then it’s already showing on the BC calendar.

There are some clashes but they have been unavoidable and every effort has been made for this not to happen.  However the positive thing is that racing membership is continually on the increase so I don’t see many event suffering from lack of entries. 

It would be appreciated if all organisers please start to put their events onto the BC calendar as soon as possible – to help riders get organised for the year.     We are still looking for organisers for the Team Time Trial and Closed Circuit Champs which incorporates the Youth Road Race Championships – if anybody is able to do this please contact me.

Hope everybody has a good racing season.   Please do not hesitate to contact me if there are any queries.

Merry Cross Mass & New Years Day Run

Tis the season to be Cross...fa la laa la laaa, la laaa la laaaaah.

Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all, especially Law Wheelers. May 2015 bring you all the successes you wish for (off or on the bike!).


The club are looking forward to a busy year ahead.

Expectations are high that the club will have good participation in all disciplines of cycling, from Cross and mountain biking, to the track, and moving onto Audax and Sportives. And for those venturing into the racing scene, some points to be had.


There's a huge number of fallen trees as a result of the recent blustery and wet weather in Chatelherault, so be careful if riding around there. As well as the pictured lump
blocking the route along the Calder at the top of Strathclyde Park.


Finally, the New Years Day run will taken place at Newmains Cross, 10am start. Be there or be... hungover. Likliehood of a coffee stop is low.

Saturday Cross 29-11-14

Saturdays cross/MTB run on 29th Nov took in some of the Clyde Walkway.
Starting at Dalzell Estate and meandering through fields. 

Lots and lots of sticky winter mud makes for a heavy bike and rescued traction.
Plenty of fun was had, and highly recommend off road run. 

Have to be careful passing the big "coo's", a little kick from one of them is going to hurt.


No cross run next week as the club xmas lunch is taking place at the last shift inn.

Law Wheelers Sunday Run 29-11-14

Sunday club run will head out in an easterly direction to the EICA. Edinburgh International Climbing Arena serves excellent coffee and cakes, and happens to be half way round the loop.

http://www.eica-ratho.co.uk/facilities/cafe

Then return via Avinbrisge and Caldercruix. Makes for a slightly above average club run around the 60 mile mark, but with the good weather forecast and easterly wind, should be an excellent day in the saddle.

The route on Strava, where you can also download routes for garmin etc.

Davy's Club Run Review 23rd Nov 2014

11 at New mains Cross for a steady run to Biggar via Yieldshields. Soon lose one who decided to head home and 3 more to the Apple Pie at Carnwath. The rest on to Libberton then Biggar and Elsrickle and Coffee Spot. Eat in, fast service. 3 on to Thankerton and then Peebles and Stobo. Wind was light with moderate SW. 16.5 mph average for 105.5 miles.
