Kintyre Wheelers Cycling Club, KWCC, have reported that participation in all future events will be restricted to club members.

The decision, taken at a KWCC committee meeting on May 23, will ensure that the club’s insurance will cover all participants.

Prospective members will be permitted to attend for a taster session to see if they wish to join. The proposed cost of membership is £15 per annum.

The club plans to arrange monthly time trials at MACC in the near future and is currently planning to conduct a poll on the group Facebook page to receive members’ views on a suitable day and time.

The time trials will be in a controlled environment where participants will test themselves against the clock at their own pace.

KWCC considered the Kintyre Way Ultra a success, but reported that it is unlikely to continue as a joint event and that the cycling might continue as a stand-alone event.

The grade two Kilberry Loop Sportive, organised by John Hardy of Mid Argyll Triathlon and Cycling Club, will be held on August 11 beginning at 8.30am.

Event information, including entry, is available on the British Cycling website, www.britishcycling.org.uk/events.
