  • Led by Eachann Gillies, this will be a gentle paced jaunt round some of Ayrshire's finest little lanes. Mostly quiet roads so you’ll see more cows than cars. There aren’t any humungous climbs but there a few spicy ramps here and there – but this is a social ride so we will keep everyone together. If you fancy a wee dig on a climb, just wait for us at the top. We’ll meet at Malletsheugh arch at 8.45, and leave at 9am, heading through Eaglesham, over the Ardochrig, down to Watermill and over the Cattery climb. After this we loop round west, heading towards Sorn, where we’ll stop by the river for some cake and coffee. After this we’ll head north to Galston, then up to Fenwick and back to the Malletsheugh via the A77 cycle path. Remember to bring a spare inner tube, a patch kit and a pump. The calendar might tell you we’re in summer, but that doesn’t mean much round here, so dress appropriately, bring a jacket with you and some food for the ride. You can find the route here.

Leaving from the top of Newton Mearns at 8:00am we'll roll out and head west through Uplawmoor farm roads, Bridge of Weird before joining the scenic Old Largs Road.

It may be summer but it's still Scotland so please check the weather, dress accordingly, check you bike is healthy and bring food and spares! Find the route here.

Bring your climbing legs, and bring plenty of snacks/water to fuel them! This will be the most enjoyable, rewarding ride you'll do in 2017. I promise.

  • This is a ride for the new-to or recently just started cyclist, looking to push them selves to that next level. The group will mainly consist of OL1 Crossfit members but all are welcome. Starting from OL1 Crossfit (Oldham) at 8.00am we will head to the flatlands of Cheshire, through the picturesque lanes before stopping briefly at the famous Jodrell Bank. After some caffeine and cake, we will head North back to the RCCMCR clubhouse to hopefully meet with other W100 groups from the day, before making our final push back to OL1. No doubt there will be varying abilities, and whilst all efforts will be made to keep every one together, it is fully expected each rider will be self sufficient should their plans change, and fully be aware of the route.

  • A hilly route out into the beautiful Surrey countryside, we'll take on 7 climbs including Staple Lane, Barhatch and Box Hill. This route will focus on 'conquering the cols' and is aimed towards ladies who are comfortable with the distance but looking to challenge themselves in a fun environment on the climbs. Aim is to average around 22-23kmph, regrouping regularly at the top of climbs. We'll also pop in at least one cafe stop but there is the potential for a couple of others if people want them on the day. Please be sure to bring food, drink, spares, tools and appropriate clothing for the ride - clipping in is a must.

  • This ride will loop you round the scenic Agsu district which sits between the Great Caucasus and the plain of Shirvan. The ride takes in two notable climbs; firstly from Munganli to Qiratan (ca. 450m) at the start of the ride and then from Agsu back up to Munganli (ca. 700m) at the end of the ride.  The later is used on the Tour of Azerbaijan.  There will be options to stop and refuel, as well as, a support vehicle carrying extra water, drinks, snacks, spares and tools for any minor mechanical issues.  The aim will be to average 20-22km/hr (plase note that the big climbs will reduce the overall ave. speed significantly!) and we will regroup at the top of any climb.  Riders should have had some experience of riding in a group, have a good working road bike and clothing suitable for the ride. This will be a challenging route but you will be supported all the way.  Transportation from and to Baku will be arranged so there may be a small contribution to make to cover the cost (details to be announced later). For now, you can find the route here and expect the ride to begin at 7:00am.
