FWCC Summer League Event 3

This year’s summer league is the closest fought yet. Event 1 was the race of the Gordon’s: experienced time triallist Gordon Graham versus equally experienced time triallist Gordon Stead. It was a dead heat. Event 2 was another clash of the FWCC time trialling titans, this time with Gordon Graham crossing the line in exactly the same time as Chris Staples. Who will blink first? Event 3 delivered a partial verdict. Held on a gloriously sunny evening on a 10.4 mile route ... Read more >

Scottish National Women’s Series: Seventh Place for Macrae

Fullarton rider Beth Macrae came seventh in Event 1 of the Scottish National Women's Road Race Series held on Saturday in Aberdeenshire. A stage race, it comprised a hilly prologue time trial of 3.5 miles in the morning and a 32 mile road race in the afternoon. Women's road racing is fiercely competitive and fantastic to watch.

Etap Loch Ness

Riders Mikey Allen and Allie Kinnaird were the Fullarton Wheeler's ambassadors at Sunday’s Etap Loch Ness. This is a hugely popular 65 mile sportive event which takes part on closed roads. It usually sells out in the space of 24 hours as thousands of riders look to take part, some attempting to post a fast time over a challenging course, others wanting to soak up the atmosphere and the stunning Highland scenery. Neither Allen or Kinnaird spotted the Loch Ness Monster but the hi... Read more >

Saturday Bun Run, in the Sun, Done

With the sun still shining, Saturday morning meant a speedy return trip from Irvine to Largs for the regular ‘Bun Run’. It was a glorious day. The roads were quiet and the sun twinkled off the water as the neat bunch of riders sped through Seamill, past the turning for Portencross, under the pylons for Hunterston, then back to the water’s edge alongside the Largs Yacht Haven. Winter League Winner John Todd was in attendance and powering along as normal, as were father... Read more >

Falkirk Time Trial

Saturday also saw the Fullarton time trial contingent arrive on-mass for the Falkirk Bicycle Club 10 mile time trial. This is a popular early-season event with no fewer than 89 riders being sent off at one minute intervals. The course is not one which requires riders to hold the handlebars straight and give maximum power for as long as possible. Instead it kicks off with a frenetic downhill start, several sharp turns, and at the point of maximum exhaustion a sharp hill back up to th... Read more >

Sunday Club Run

Sunday morning outside the Portal in Irvine means only one thing: the weekly Fullarton Wheelers' Club Run. Due to it being officially summer not only were there nearly twenty riders present, but some were in shorts and racing jerseys. It was as if they were trying to use their pasty skin tone to reflect back some of the tepid sunshine. Unlike the weekend's racing action and challenging rides over the Ayrhire Alps, this was steady social riding. The pace was easy as the group wound... Read more >
