ON Easter Sunday 24th April, 29 riders representing cycling clubs from as far afield as Glasgow and Berwickshire took part in the annual Humbie Hilly cycling time trial.
The testing 23-mile course covered two laps of an anti-clockwise circuit from East Saltoun via Humbie and back to East Saltoun.
In the warm spring sunshine, a breezy south westerly wind challenged the riders for this event, promoted by Musselburgh Roads Cycling Club in its 75th anniversary year.
Winning in a time of 58 mins, 11 secs was Kristoff Aksnes of the Glasgow Wheelers Cycling Club. First lady was Jessica Wilson-Young from Edinburgh Road Club in a time of 1 hour 5 mins and 3 secs. First junior was 16 year-old Ayrton Pellet of the Edinburgh Road Club in a time of 1 hours 10 mins and 21 secs.

Details are being finalised to celebrate 75 years in Scottish cycling, the club plans to host a wide range of activities and number of events over the next year culminating with a commemorative presentation dinner scheduled for October 2011.
