Malawian Cycle Team.

As you know we are lucky enough to be sponsored by Billy Bilsland’s Cycle Shop in Glasgow. Well with the Commonwealth Games well under way now I came across this rather lovely story – it turns out Glasgow Riderz aren’t the only team to benefit from their generosity…

Well done Bilsland’s and good luck Malawi!

Cancer Support Scotland have asked us to help publicise this – a good ride for a great cause…

Moscow to Houston 24/08/14

Our next big challenge event is our “Moscow to Houston” bike ride, which is taking place on Sunday 24th August 2014.

The starting point is in Moscow, Ayrshire, and the finish line is in the Fox & the Hounds pub in Houston, Renfrewshire (see what we did there?).

The event is open to riders of all abilities, so if you feel up to the challenge please sign up! Our very own Chief Executive, Colin Graham, is even taking part!

When you sign up you will be provided with an information pack, giving you fundraising ideas and help on how to prepare. You will also receive a Cancer Support Scotland t-shirt and a rider number.

On the day we will have trained first aiders as well as volunteers to help cheer you on.

We advise all riders to get their bikes checked before the event

The cycle is approximately 36 miles and the route, which goes via The Calman Centre, can be seen below. Although the cycle is mostly on cycle paths and lanes there will be some riding on roads.
