Have you always fancied taking part in Bute’s cycling festival - only to be stopped in your tracks by a lack of talent or fitness?

Well, don’t worry too much, because now you can experience just what two of the festival’s events look like from a rider’s point of view - courtesy of Kevin Pugh from Walkers Cycling Club of Kilmaurs in Ayrshire.

Kevin donned a HelmetCam for Saturday morning’s Serpentine hillclimb and for the Bute Cross cyclo-cross event at the Meadows that evening, and has generously shared the YouTube links to his two videos.
