Congratulations to Lawrence Webster on his absolutely amazing ride in the Lang Way Doon overnight. 325 miles from Tongue to Coldstream in 23Hrs 15 Minutes. I for one am in awe of those stats. Chapeau Sir. ...
Club Run - 24th June 2018 The Midsummer Road Race is on this Sunday with a few Wheelers taking part. So the longer route will ride up to the circuit and so we can catch some of the action. One group again this week meeting at the usual meeting points at the south end of Springfield Road at 09:00 and then 09:25 at the South Deeside / Netherley junction.

Jamie's season continues with another cracking "25" putting a Wheeler name on the old Trophy for the first time in around two decades. With Matt Cockerell getting a fine 3rd place and Four Wheelers in the top Six it was indeed a Wheeler day.
Every Wheeler in the field was on song apart from an unfortunate Iain Watson who retired early wheezing with breathing difficulties.
Jamie's name goes on the Brian Low Trophy.
In the SVTTA John Cramb [handicap] competition it was 81 year old Al [ABG] Washington from Caithness who, with a startling 1:04:55, edged it from Deeside's fast improving Ron Lowe. Deeside's Jim Robb was there defending and seemed reasonably happy with his "1:05"
A nice spread by organiser Dan Ewing, Amy and mum Sheila. Dan tells me he has had a number of compliments passed on re: the event 🙂
