300 Days and counting…….

The fun starts here.


Montrose Chain Gang

Posted: February 10, 2013 in Uncategorized

Late last year a group of like minded Montrose cyclists joined together to form the Montrose Chain Gang. Group runs tend to take place every Sunday morning with ride requests and posts being put up through the week.

We have been going out and doing 20 to 30 mile runs but expect this to increase as the weather improves and the summer sportives get nearer!!

Find us on Facebook here and on Strava here.

The two pics are both from last years Sportive St Andrews where we spent a windy Sunday afternoon following the route lines on the display of my Garmin Edge 200 after some kind folk stole all the route markers from the 65 mile and 88 mile circuits. Thankfully I had downloaded the GPX data or we would have been banjaxed! We even picked up a couple of followers who lost their riding groups and were also lost.

The 65 mile route had some good climbs with a real beezer near the end climbing up to Strathkiness that neither of us was expecting.

Both of us are signing up again for the 88 mile route on 25th August this year. You can find details here and follow them on Twitter at @SportiveStAs

A New Team Member?

Alto Ventuno’s newest team member, former World Champion Graeme Obree!!

Not really – He is too busy building a bike to break the 100mph land speed record to head over to France with us all next year.

A drive up The Alpe

Finally managed to get round to posting the video we took as we drove up Le Alpe D’Huez. Hopefully you will get an appreciation of how steep it was. As you approach one of the switchbacks you can see the angles of both sections of road.


Alto Ventuno II

Alto Ventuno II is on for late June 2013. All three climbs of Le Mont Ventoux in one day. Road bike not required. No-one gets left behind. Who is coming?

Details of the plan can be found here!

Lance’s Twitter Ride!

Posted: July 17, 2011 in Uncategorized

Spent this evening riding 30 miles in the torrential rain with non other than Mr Lance Armstrong! Got a text from Bren first thing to say it was on, loaded the bike – after a bit of encouragement from Kar! – and headed for Dornoch. Lance arrived bang on 1700 and after stopping for the press, set off under blue skies with me holding his back wheel for around 50 yards before the group shifted and I lost my place!!! Rain set in after about 8 miles but spirits remained high throughout.
