Despite poor conditions on the day, keen cyclists turned out for the third annual East Neuk First Responders cycle and raised more than £1000.

Starting and finishing in the beautiful grounds of the National Trust for Scotland’s Kellie Castle, 58 cyclists completed the 40-mile undulating course around the East Neuk, Peat Inn, Gilston and Balcormo, with a welcome snack stop at New Gilston and lunch at Kellie Castle.

George Fraser, race organiser, said: “We had a very successful day and have to say a huge thank you to the National Trust for Scotland, the estate owners and most especially to the cyclists who support us, many for the third year in a row.

“We will again have raised well over £1000 and as an entirely self-funding charity, this is vital to allow us to continue with the life-saving work we do in the East Neuk”

The group will be attending a number of events locally over the summer to raise awareness of its Public Access Defibrillators and the role they play in the community.
