He­bridean chal­lenge

The Oban Times - - News -

THE Mo­ray Wheel­ers, a group of 32 cy­clists with an av­er­age age of ‘ well above 60’, ped­alled down the Outer He­brides last week on their 400-mile cir­cu­lar route from El­gin rais­ing funds for Can­cer Re­search UK.

The cy­clists, the el­dest of whom is 75, bat­tled tor­ren­tial rain and 12 punc­tures on their first 63mile leg, fought strong head­winds be­tween Stornoway and Ben­bec­ula, and then a can­celled ferry be­tween Barra and Oban.
