Scottish 30 mile time trial record

Scottish cycling records are ratified and published on the Scottish Cycling website. I was passed a detailed compilation of historic records that were compiled by Jock Shaw for posterity, and decided to publish them here for information. See my Scottish time trial records post for a full index list of records. Unless otherwise specified, these are SC records, so subject to BC/UCI rules.

The 30 mile distance has been recorded since the Scottish Amateur Racing Association began to recognise competition records in 1932, but it hasn’t been as popular a distance as the ’25’. No records were posted in the 1940s or 1960s, and there was only one record time posted in the 80s, 90s and 00s.
