The Oban Times - - Sport -

A FAM­ILY-FRIENDLY cy­cle will be held near Kyle of Lochalsh at the week­end.

The joint Tar­tan Cy­cle and Spin­ning Wheels event will kick off at 12pm on Satur­day, start­ing and fin­ish­ing from Plock­ton high school and tak­ing in the quiet roads of Bal­macara.

As well as the eight-kilo­me­tre cy­cle, the bik­ing theme will con­tinue with a col­lec­tion of clas­sic bikes on dis­play and smoothie mak­ing us­ing the power of ped­als.

Gavin Skip­per, Bal­macara Es­tate ranger, said: ‘Try out a fam­ily cy­cle skills course or have a go at hoopla us­ing a bi­cy­cle tyre. For those with a com­pet­i­tive edge there will be an op­por­tu­nity to take part in a time trial cir­cuit. Fixed wheel bikes will be pro­vided as com­peti­tors go head-to-head just like an in­di­vid­ual pur­suit. In each cat­e­gory the fastest lap is the win­ner. Re­fresh­ments will be avail­able on site through­out the af­ter­noon.’
