Just driven down Chalmerston Road and no sign of ice at all. And the wind has dropped a bit, so thinking I'll go out.
Yes, that's brill, Brenda. See you at 7.00pm And Andrew too I hope.

Andrew I'd really like an easier ride but at 2 degrees (feels like -2 with the easterly wind) I fear both ice on our route and getting cold riding; so regretfully I'm passing. Be safe if you go out.

Is anyone wishing to go for a ride tonight? I would politely request that the ride is as described in the subject i.e. Inter/easy middle pace. If you want to go faster, that's fine, I just won't be doing that, we could even split into 2 groups if people want to do different speeds.

Hi Allan
Thanks for the message.
Steve and I are tempted to come along but we can go much earlier. What is the earliest you can manage?

Anyone heading out tonight? It should be a nice evening - dry, not too windy and not too cold.

Definitely looks like it will be wet tonight and since no-one else has posted to say they'll be there and I don't fancy cycling in the dark and wet on my own, I'll join the Strava group ride at 6.45pm tonight instead.

Hi Alan, Steve and I'll be there at 7.00pm too. Anyone else? Normal 20 mile route to Thornhill, Flanders Moss and Coldoch Road via Chalmerston Rd, at 15-17 mph, good lights, tools, spares and mudguards please. Helmet mandatory. Meet in or by bus shelter opposite the entrance to Dobbies. Over 16's only and 16-18's need to carry emergency contact details, please.

No-one interested, due to monsoon, so rollers it was for me, and strength & conditioning for Steve. Anyone free for 7.00pm next Thursday 15 Nov? I'm keen, even if wet, as I have a weekend of travel and partying ahead.

Hi Beth
I'm not going out tonight given the rain forecast - I'll take shelter at a spin class instead

Looks like the weekend will be a washout for me (literally on Saturday but also busy on Sunday) so I'll layer up as a Michelin man for this evening's ride as well!

I'll come for a gentle spin. Got cabin fever and need some air. See you at the bus shelter at 7.00pm. If I'm late, which is often, please progress along Chalmerston Rd and I'll be heading along it in the opposite direction!

Anyone else up for a night ride tonight?

I’ll go as long as I know there’s going to be at least one other person otherwise I’ll stick to the turbo in the garage!

As per Gill’s suggestion (for safety in the dark) happy to meet at 7pm at the bus shelter opposite Dobbies.

Any takers?

Alan

Hi Jim, I go to pilates most Monday nights, but might see you there occasionally. Thanks for flagging up your training plans.

Exact same route as the summer run. Bring good lights and warm bright gear. I should make it most Mondays and anybody up for it please join me?

Hi Gill,
I totally understand your position.
Please, please be careful at that bus stop. It’s a horrible section of road.

Hi Norrie

Personally not so keen on the idea. I would not want to wait by myself in the dark in a quiet lane. I'm much happier out on the main road where seen by all and it was chosen for this reason in the winter, with the added protection of the bus shelter if required. The bus stop gives us an area to move out into the moving traffic.

Can I recommend that you do not meet at the bus stop but at the start of Chalmerston Road instead. (That location caused confusion during the Monday night summer rides as it is!)
That bus stop is on a busy trunk road opposite a busy shopping facility that will commence late night opening towards Christmas. Meeting on bicycles at that location in summer daylight isn’t ideal. Meeting there on winter nights isn’t a good decision guys. Go round the corner where it is safe, quiet and on the proposed route.

Sounds like a plan.

Last year was 7pm.

I will be there most Thursdays at 7pm at Bus Stop opposite Dobbies.
