Hi, my name is Wilson Sanches and I'm a Portuguese person who lives in Glasgow for five years. I'm also a full-time student in Cumbernauld College. I've been following cycling since I was 12 or 13 (I'm now 21) but I haven't been in a cycling club or a cycling team ever. Is there any cycling clubs in Glasgow that do fixed gear racing, crits or road racing?
Get a British cycling license and enter races, you do not need to be in a cycling club to race, can enter them unattached. I guess the velodrome is a good place to start for fixed gear.
You can't race standard road crits on a fixed gear. And there isnt much of a scene in Glasgow. Buy gears, race, like everyone else. Or get accredited and go on the track.
All of the clubs seemed shit when I was there.
While I'm no real big fan of clubs in general, why do you say they are shit?
Aren't clubs like lock rings?
They're not, clubs are often great. The ones I encountered in Glasglow were shit. Too many old men doing the same route every week. Not very "dynamic".
Sounds like you should have tried some Glasgow clubs
Invite only clubs are like lock rings
There's none of them in Glasgow is there?
There probably is, there's enough cunt cyclists in Glasgow to warrant at least one or two.
There are one or two, plenty of forum members have been in them.
Dafuq does the SR stand for btw?
Ok, I'll go to the velodrome then. I went to the Emirates Arena last year but I only have done one session. Should I do the same session again?
The old man ones are the better ones, ones full of Strava arseholes are worse.
Haha I like strava.
Now that the evenings are longer and the weather is better (there, jinxed it just like that) why don't we get a fixed gears and beer ride together? Try for once a month, twice if more popular? A but like the Fixed Beer crew in London if anyone knows them..
