In tribute of the closest thing to ‘cross in the off season, the Classics, we present you our #doyouevenlanebro CLASSICO. It’s a generous expression of road riding to the south of Glasgow combing ~ 120 ish km of local lanes, strade bianchelee and renfrewshire ribinou ending up at the clubhouse (Clydesdale CC) to watch the last hour or so of Paris-Roubaix.
There WILL be some gravel. It’s perfectly rideable on a road bike but we’d recommend tough 25mm++ wide rubber, definitely not your precious race wheels and a sense of adventure.
We will unfortunately not be stopping for punctures (or slow pokes) along the way. We’re on a pretty tight schedule to get back to watch P-R. If you find yourself in a bit of grief, fix it up, smash a few tangfastics and either catch the group up along another section of the meandering route or meet us back at the clubhouse for après-velo beers.
If you want to come it is mandatory to have the route with you. Either download via Komoot below or manually via this link.
We’ll be leaving from the Battlefield Rest from 9am on Sunday the 14th of April. See you then!
#doyouevenlandebroCLASSICO is not a race nor a sportive, it’s an open social ride. It is unsupported and you are responsible for your own equipment and more importantly, yourself. You join us at your own risk and you are expected to ride in a safe, considerate manner, both to other road users and other riders.
Call out the hazards, always bring spares, dress like a pro, fill your pockets with scran, enjoy the ride and don’t be a dick.
