Velo rid­ers wrap up warm as they head for the hills

Paisley Daily Express - - A Newlandscape - Cy­cling

It was just another win­ter week­end for Pais­ley Velo as the cold weather con­tin­ues to greet the cy­clists.

Velo had two groups tak­ing to their moun­tain bikes and they headed off-road up to the Glenif­fer Braes and the Kil­patrick Hills, with a cou­ple of rid­ers ex­plor­ing the roads for some ex­tra speed.

On Sun­day, af­ter two week­ends of ice, the club runs resur­faced on a beau­ti­ful win­ter’s day.

The Wee Ring took on a short tour of Ren­frew­shire, be­fore set­tling for some grub at Bernie’s, in Bridge Of Weir, and head­ing home from there.

Mean­while, the Mid­dle Ring group headed to Bal­loch and He­lens­burgh, where they had a stop at Hum­bles, in He­lens­burgh, be­fore head­ing back to Pais­ley, clock­ing up 50 miles in the process.

Another group headed up the Kil­patrick Hills to try new routes for when the roads are icy and go­ing off-road is the bet­ter op­tion.
