    What is the format for this league? Is it just turn up and have a go or is there more to it? May yet dust off the TT bike and have a go.

    I brought up a club clothing as the ideal option to provide the best way of sharing excess club funds between members in the zoom AGM we had in 2020 (?). I still believe this is the fairest way and supports members purchasing expensive club clothing and advertising the club each time they wear it out riding.

    I also like the idea of a charitable donation if we can agree on a cause. Probably something local makes sense but for something I have supported and very much needed at the moment this a great cause https://www.trusselltrust.org (should not be necessary in a civilised society etc but when you have a government who exist to please the top 1% of the richest and, despite what they say, do not really care about anyone else (except in the short term lead up to an election) then their work is vital). Soapbox put away again…..

    Was thinking of giving this one a go on May 1st – https://www.cyclingtimetrials.org.uk/race-details/23021

    Still trying to decide if I can be bothered or whether it is time to sell the TT bike. Anyone else thinking of going? A good sized FWCC entry may persuade me to give it another go.

    The time doesn’t suit me for now Gordon, still using Zwift though and will be through the winter. A wet Saturday morning is more likely to find me in attendance.

    Gordon – the following Sunday would work better for me, cannot commit to this coming Sunday at the moment. Hope we can agree on a date to suit everyone for this month. I will partner Sean on his slow winter bike, seems like a fair pairing to me!

    Sean – are you working your way through Del’s bike collection or is that one yours? 🙂

    First ferry does not take cash – remember to bring a card

    As Mikey has said we should aim for the 9am ferry from Gourock, the weather looks dry through the morning and into early afternoon with rain forecast for mid-afternoon. If we get out early we should get most, if not all, of the run in the dry. That is the forecast as it stands now of course, might change…. but aim to meet at 8am Wemyss Bay or 8.45am at McInroys Point, Gourock to catch that 9am ferry to Dunoon.

    What a shame, I will be down in Brighton. Gutted (not). Hill Climb racing is a young man’s game, we must have a few youngsters ready to give this a go.

    Allan – we had a look at this but I think there is a lack of available riders. I am away, neither Simon or Iain can make it and I am not sure how many other members still have TT bikes. Speak to Gordon Graham but I think any idea of a team has been shelved for this year sadly.
