Carse of Gowrie Velo
The Carse of Gowrie is the picturesque rural area between Dundee and Perth in the very heart of Tayside. Famous for its soft fruit farms it is an area with many miles of unclassified and other minor roads that follow the river on largely flat or head on over to the Vale of Strathmore through one of the many hill passes. This is an area rich in opportunity for cyclists of all abilities and interests.
COG Velo started as a few cycling enthusiasts getting together regularly in 2010 and has grown to become a club with riders that have taken in part in many sportives nationally and some local race events. Our interests predominately are road racing, time trialling and some mountain biking. We have also been active in many Cyclo-cross events this year. Some of our members take part in Audax rides throughout the year (250Km+). We cater for novice to expert men and women.
We aim to be a sociable and approachable club that contributes to the local cycling calendar and cycling development initiatives. Along with the racing, we also hold social events where people can relax and catch up out of the saddle.
