MUSSELBURGH Roads Cycling Club, who cycle in the ‘Honest Toun’ colours of blue and gold, are pleased to have taken part again this year in the annual Musselburgh Festival Parade on Friday 29th July.
Says a spokesperson: “The cyclists, normally at the head of the parade would like to thank the Festival Organising Committee for allowing them the opportunity to promote cycling as a healthy activity which can be enjoyed by all age groups/abilities throughout East Lothian.
“This year, the club who are in their commemorative 75th year in Scottish cycling and committed to cycling/sport for all throughout East Lothian have teamed up for the Parade with Beyond Boundaries East Lothian (BBEL) who are a new charity offering a selection of outdoor activities for adults with lesser abilities/disabilities and mental health issues across East Lothian.”
The BBEL group are managed by Steve Nelson and will have a side-by-side cycle and a couple of wheelchair cycles giving a couple of local people with restricted mobility a chance to enjoy the experience by joining in the Parade… alongside more able-bodied cyclists.
