This year is the Glasgow Wheelers’ 100th anniversary, and it was celebrated with an event held in Hillhead Library in Glasgow. On display were various trophies from the Glasgow Wheelers, a selection of race promotion booklets and Scottish Cycling handbooks going back to the foundation of the Scottish Cycling Union. The event also featured a question and answer session from Billy Bilsland, which was hosted by Kenny Pride who is also promoting his new book "The Glasgow Wheelers - A Scottish Cycling History", available firstly in electronic form and printed soon afterwards. Jocky Johnstone has recently spent several nights in Blackpool Hospital after having a fall whilst riding near his caravan. Jocky will have to rest up for some time with several broken ribs, all this a couple of years after his previous life changing crash. All at the Scottish group send their best wishes and we hope to see Jocky out riding soon..


The VTTA National 30 Mile Championship TT, incorporating our Pinky Williams Trophy, was a success thanks to Mhairi and the Fife team for finding and measuring a course after the short notice roadworks at Cambusbarron. Best wishes go out to the two riders who crashed during the event, and we hope to see you racing soon. Douglas Watson riding for GTR Return to Life p/b Streamline takes both the National 30 mile TT title, and the SVTTA Pinky Williams Memorial Trophy, with George Adam, riding for the SVTTA, coming home first in the road bike category.
