We're not 'hardcore' at all. That's just for the sake of a pun. We're really more 'technical death metal juxtaposed with lashings of MOR'.

What a weekend's forecast! It looks wonderful! It's a perfect opportunity to come out with us for a splendid two days of cycling fun fun fun.

Saturday club runs leave from outside The Old Forge, Randalstown at 9-30am.

Regarding the Sunday club run, please get in touch for details as we working on a 'floating start time' for them.

Given current wind forecasts, it's likely we'll head out north-east to the Antrim Glens on Saturday and probably let the people of Coleraine area bask in the warm glow of our company on Sunday.

If you have any questions and/or abuse, please get in touch.

With more sunlight to enjoy, our evening club runs are back tomorrow (aka Tuesday the 25th of April).

We are hosting two Tuesday evening club runs, both meeting at St. Comgall's school car park in Antrim.

The first club run is 'higher intensity' and leaves at 6-30pm:

The latter cycle is of the 'fun run' variety and leaves, from the same location, at 7pm:

We shall be trialling a 'floating start time' for our Sunday club runs.

Rather than start at the same time each Sunday and finish at different times, we will try to work out roughly how long the ride is likely to take and alter the start time accordingly so we can get back into Randalstown at some point between 1-30pm and 2pm.

You can read all about it here: www.oldbleach.co.uk/?p=3571

We'll ensure all our club members know what time we'll be starting well in advance of the Sunday club runs.

Please contact us (eMail, message, text, post below etc.) if you have any questions.

PLEASE NOTE: This applies ONLY to our Sunday club runs. Saturdays will continue to depart from outside The Old Forge at 9-30am every Saturday.

* Fonda cycling?

Then come out with Old Bleach this weekend to do the following routes...

SAT: www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1485505645
SUN: www.mapmyride.com/routes/view/1485502588

We just can't get enough of Draperstown!

Both club runs leave from outside The Old Forge, Randalstown at 9-30am.

As ever, they're 'weather permitting' - don't expect a big turnout if it's 'pure bogging' out there.

* Probably not so fond of terrible puns

What? No club runs!

Yes, of course there are club runs - we simply haven't mapped them out for this weekend.

The wind forecast is FAR too changeable to have any idea where we're going yet. We can decide as we go (although we'd guess 'west of the lough' for both).

Come out and join us for a weekend's *magical mystery touring by meeting us outside The Old Forge at 9-30am on Saturday and/or Sunday.

* NB: Club runs contain 0% magic and <0.01% mystery
