Four riders attack the Sea to Sky route

The club's place to place route from Blackness to the Knock and back, has been ridden another four times in recent weeks. Simon Kenney posted the fasted time this year, with Allan McCrimmon just 10 seconds behind. David McTurk and Andy Brown made it into the all time top 10 too.

Allan said "This was my second attempt so I approached it with a little more restraint, being careful not to burn out. My split times were 7mins to Champany Inn, 10mins to Kingsfield Driving Range, 24mins to top of Kingscavil Brae and 39mins to the turn at the Knock."

"Coming back was a blur, I was flat out with plenty of speed wobbles, especially down Kingscavil Brae. I ride variations of this route quite often but not at this pace, which meant I had screaming legs, breathlessness and felt sick. I'm pleased with my time though."
