Hi Everyone,

I wanted to introduce my self as I have just started cycling and would like to start taking part in your club runs when I get my fitness levels up, the 60 miles you do currently might be pushing it a little.

My name is Craig and I am 29 currently staying in the New Deer area, I haven't done much cycling since I was at school but have recently taken it up again. Until now all I ever used was a mountain bike, but I have just purchased my first road bike this weekend and once I get used to using it I would be really keen to join in with the club runs.

You can find me on strava: http://www.strava.com/athletes/wuggo

Look forward to meeting you all.

Craig

Hi Craig

The QL session on a Saturday morning (Ellon Community Centre) is a good opportunity to meet a few people or come along to the Confined on Tuesday night (20th) meeting at the Coop on the Haddo road at 6.00pm.

Cheers

Chris

Thanks for the invitations.

Chris,
Do these events run every week as I have work commitments this week which mean I cannot make it. I managed to find out what the QL sessions are but cant find any information on the confined sessions on Tuesday. Could you let me know what they are about?

Colin,
I noticed that this Sundays session is cancelled or I will probably take you up on the offer for the following Sunday.

Thanks
Craig

The confined are every other week and I think there are two left. The club run isn't happening on Sunday because of the Ellon Crit - good event to come along to. I manage to do the club runs although I am considerably younger than Colin ;)

Hi Craig,

There's a few members from the Buchan area.
There's a handful from Stuartfield (me included), a couple from Strichen, 1 from Maud. Dave Harrison is from New Deer too, but he's concentrating on Triathlons and I haven't seen him for a while. And my nieces and nephews all live in New Deer.
I haven't been doing much cycling this year cause of work getting in the way too, and can't assist on Sunday cause I'm attending a Sheep Racing Night at the Stuartfield Hall. (Not what you'd think). So I expect to be hung-over on Sunday.
But I'll be popping along on Sunday in a couple of weeks from now and look forward to meeting you.

Regards

Bondie

Evening All,

I plan to have a ride to Ellon tomorrow to watch some of the events and to try out my new bike so I will hopefully see some of you there.

Thanks
Craig
