Cyclists ride for the lost of Lockerbie
MORE than 100 cyclists rode from Lockerbie to Edinburgh to honour those killed in the 1988 bombing.
Pan Am flight 103 was en route from London to New York when it exploded above the Scottish town 1988, killing 259 on board and 11 on the ground.
Thirty-five victims were students at Syracuse University in the US.
Five cyclists will travel to the US to ride from Arlington to Syracuse in the next stage of the challenge. One will be Colin Dorrance, an 18-year-old off-duty policeman on the night of the bombing.
Scottish secretary David Mundell said: “As we approach the 30th anniversary, it is fitting five local men are making the journey to Syracuse to remember those lost.”
