Bellahouston Mellowdrome

    Longtime lurker, first time caller..got a new bike recently and been half eyeing up the velodrome over at Parkhead, but due to lack of current fitness (was bikeless for 2 months at the start of summer) and general fear of organized sport, recently discovered the "velodrome" down at Bellahouston park..

    Been cycling down to the park (fairly close to where I stay) fairly regularly for the last 6 months as it's usually pretty quiet and has decent sufacing and a nice combo of hills and flats..but only realised it had the "velodrome" after a google search the other day.

    Anyway, went down to see it, and it is indeed quite pish but planning on going down a few times a week to fuck about and start semi working on lap times and that. Didn't really want to do an event for it, but if anyone fancies a few beers and pitiful banking on corners give us a shout here..!

  • I reckon that'd make quite a good fixed beer. We are sorted with Stewarton this week but maybe the week after?

  • Week after sounds good, nice one.

  • Last few fixed beers have been on Thursdays but I'm working that Thurs, if it was on the Tuesday can you make it?

  • Prrrrrrrrrrrrobably - away to a festival in Oxfordshire or some shit this fri-sun/mon and driving both ways, so should be good unless I overindulge to the point of silliness, which is looking about 50/50 at the moment.
    If we're keeping it South could head to ally arms or rum shack afterwards maybe?

  • Hi, just getting into the whole fixed gear thing and started building mine out of an old raleigh. Might pop down to this.

  • Ive created an event on Facebook for this.

    Tuesday 8th August. Meet Big Slope at 7, roll out to Belladrome then back to Park Circus for more high-jinks/crashing/drinking etc.

    If you don't already, give Glasgow Bike Umbrella a follow.

  • Amazing, good jeorb!

  • ah shame i missed this. High jinx at park circus sounds good. Strava tells me I'm still the fastest round the park circus 'velodrome'. Probably my greatest achievement...

  • Shameless brag^
