Highwayman Heroes

Wow,

Would you have got out your bed this morning, pulled on a pair of shorts and set off for an epic 200km ride at 8am this morning in those conditions?

Can you believe 29 brave hardy souls did?

The weather was so grim that unfortunately our pics are somewhat poor…

Less than half the field turned out to ride, and every single one of those who completed the full course including the Raiders and Carrick Forest sections deserves a long lie tomorrow and their randonneur title!

And huge thanks to our catering dream team, Catherine and Niamh Fulton who were serving our gladiators right up until half eight this evening!

100km Highwaymen

The weather had lifted slightly for the 100km starters, but even so the wind was howling around the start and blowing down the barriers.

There was some great sights to be seen though, such as another father-son pairing, Alan and Arnie Thomson.

The Retro Bike?

We didn’t get the chance to award Bobby McGhee of Prestwick who presented his beautiful Holdsworth machine.  But we’ll sort that out soon and take a proper look at his bonnie beast.

Still ridden as a main bike, Bobby's Holdsworth is already on its third recoat and is graced with all the Campagnolo and Mavic you could ask for
