The cyclists, ranging from top professional’s to club racers and leisure cyclists started from Falkland in mist and drizzle from 9.30 with the longer 65mile road ride being run around Lindores, Dunning, Auchterarder, Glen Devon and Milnathort, a slower 65mile ride was run in the opposite direction. At 10.00 a shorter 35 mile ride around Lindores, Glenfarg, and Milnathort started and also a Mountain Bike ride around the Lomonds. All cyclists were welcolmed back at the hall in Falkland with hot soup, stovies and cakes.

Another reliability trial takes place this Sunday and again it is open to all levels of cyclist, the start this time is from Milton of Balgonie Hall with the longer 65 mile rides leaving at 10.00am and taking in Crail, St Andrews, Tayport, Cupar and Kennoway finishing back at Milton.
