Reply To: Rothesay Weekend of Cycling
Thoroughly enjoyed reading the report Dougie. The Bute Wheelers put a lot into organising this weekend and good to see it well supported.
Aye, I chose the hardest bit of the 2-up for spectating… loads of pained faces and oddly one or two smiles 😁. Loads of people shouting thanks for the encouragement. Poor old Steve was yelping with pain… sounded like you were whacking him with your bike pump… or elbowing him in the ribs.. definitely inflicting some sort of cruel sadistic pain (as always, an inspirational ride Steve).
Having decent form I was desperate to ride Scotland’s most scenic 10m TT but the dentist’s instruction was ‘relax for a few days and DO NOT EXERCISE’… got to give the bovine bone graft and titanium screw the best chance of succes 🐄.
Well done all who took part.
Hopefully back to the teas, coffees, soup, cakes, sandwiches and a more sociable event next year.
Cheers, Gordon G.
