A group of us rode a loop from Pitlochry on Sunday. It's only a four hour 20 plus mile ride but it has nearly 3800 feet of climbing and descending in it. There were three fourteen year olds 'along' for the ride.
They were flying. They've been only been riding for a couple of years. They rode full of enthusiasm and boundless energy. I don't have kids myself, but found them a total inspiration. Well done to their folks for getting them into the sport. They are all interested in racing, so their future looks bright. They mostly ride with a local club in Glenrothes.
Is this typical across the country?
