Cycling: Henry sets Bute Wheelers ‘postbox challenge’ record

Mike Henry set a personal best and club record this week in the Bute Wheelers’ latest ‘Postbox Challenge’ time trial.

Mike completed the ‘round the island’ course, from the postbox at the Pavilion to the postbox at Craigmore Pier, in 57 minutes and eight seconds on Sunday evening.

Remarkably, only two hundredths of a second separated second and third place, with Brendan O’Hagen edging out Bob Templeton by the width of a tyre!

There were also some good performances over the Rhubodach time trial course last Tuesday night - Shaun Lyon posted a season’s best at just over 26 minutes and Ian Blair did likewise at 28 minutes, closely followed by sons Callum and Lewis at just over 30 mins.

Bob Templeton produced 25:26 mins and Mike Henry edged closer to the club record at 24:23 mins.
