GGCC Club Run, Sunday 19th December 2021 - Balloch / Xmas Social

GGCC Christmas Social Ride - Last official GGCC Road Ride of 2021 

Ho Ho Ho.........with Christmas just around the corner, ......its time to break out the Santa Hats and Tinsel!! Its time for our Xmas social ride, so go crazy with the Xmas decorations and get yourself and your bike dressed up and decorated for Xmas.

We have had mini Xmas trees on panniers, flashing frames, baubles, tinsel and santa hats and Penguins!! So lets see what craziness turns up this year!

Its the last official ride of 2021 before our 2 week Xmas break when we come back for the first ride of 2020 on Sunday 9th January so come along, get involved and have some fun!

Please meet under the McLennan Arch on the green for 8:30am sharp start.

We plan to head west to Balloch where we will invade McDonalds like a troop of little elves!!

We will head along South Street, along Dumbarton Road, to Clydebank, Old Kilpatrick, Bowling, Milton, Alexandria and then Balloch before returning.

Sunday is a social ride for fun so no paced groups and a good chance to round off the year with some banter and fun.

We will go through some basic safety, first aid and basic bike maintenance before we set off so that everyone stays safe and knows exactly what’s happening on the ride - make sure your baubles aren't hanging too low!?!?

For those of you who are first aid trained and have been issued first aid pack, can you please bring these along on Sunday (and each run you attend)


Flat Balloch Loop | 38.8 mi Road Cycling Route on Strava

Forecast is to be ok on Sunday with only a 20% chance of rain, 1 – 3 degrees, and a 4mph NE wind gusting to only 10mph.

Groups should contain between 10 - 12 riders.

Lets round off what has been a fantastic 2019 with a strong turnout and get bauble'd pure oot yer napper!!

Elf.......check, Santa.......check.........Rudolph......check..............Penguin.......maybe?.........Xmas tree............who knows what we will get!!!

Look forward to seeing you Sunday!

Can we stress again the below –

If you don’t feel safe, don’t attend. Don’t put yourself in a situation you are not comfortable with. I understand that some may be more cautious than others

1. Participants are required to carry a face covering at all times.

2. If you are in any way ill or have any symptoms at all….DO NOT attend a club ride

3. If you have been in a public situation that you feel there was or may have been a risk with regards to Covid-19, please do not attend and wait until the next club ride

4. Be respectful (as you always are), be thoughtful and mindful of your actions during your time with your fellow members.
