Thanks for organising Fraser. A great ride and a brilliant atmosphere at the top of Dukes Pass.

Thanks to the Dunblane crew that turned up. 11 of us in the end but we picked up strays, lost riders to other groups and picked up more for the way back.

I think we can all agree we were exceptionally lucky with the weather.

Same time next year - hopefully.

Rolling road closures with Police outriders. Road closed to traffic 20-30 minutes ahead of the race which will be heading towards you if approaching from the north.

I could take a development group ride that included the wts, but it would have to start as Ray suggested, in Thornhill or Callander, it would include more than the usual climbing and probably not start at 9am, would that be OK?
Also, are the roads closed to traffic? and if so how do I find out the last access times for bikes?

Organiser has put up details of timings as follows ( womenstourofscotland.com/route/stage-2/ ):
11.15 – Race depart in George Square, Glasgow
12.07 – Sprint 1 Aberfoyle 37.8 km
12.10 – QOM Duke’s Pass 45km
12.42 – Feed zone at Strathyre Cabins 62.7km

At their level, expect the lead riders to be at the top by 1220hrs! Shame we can't be just beyond Strathyre (feed zone) as it'll be a great spot to pick up discarded musette bags as a souvenir!

Ok - I think the plan for Saturday will be to push off from Tesco in Dunblane at 09:30 and pedal out to Dukes Pass.

Deanston Road - Invertrossachs - Dukes.

Grant has said there will be bacon rolls at the top.

Post up if you are coming. Note this is not an official club ride. It is supernumerary and I think the official club rides will also be heading to Dukes.

Great idea.
My turn for RRL duties that day so looks like Middle Group will be heading that way.

It would be a pity if Development riders were to miss out on this event. I won’t be around but if I was I would be suggesting a Development ride starting at someplace like Thornhill or Callander.

Jim T had mentioned all rides going out that way on the day Fraser, except Development.

Not sure how far he went with it though.

There is some chat about SBC gathering on Dukes Pass for the Woman’s Tour of Scotland on 10/08. An SBC corner if you will.

Is anyone interested in forming a grupetto from Dunblane to Dukes Pass?

Still need to look into timings but interested in see if there is an interest.

Post up if you are interested.
