Here is some info about an appearance by the great Graeme Obree that readers may be interested in.
On Saturday 24th November, Magdala Media (organisers of the Scottish Bike Show) & Ronde Bicycle Outfitters will be hosting ‘A Night with Graeme OBree’ celebrating the Scottish legend’s achievements in cycling and the upcoming cycling land speed record. Taking place in Edinburgh at Ronde, this special evening will be open to the public to attend, including an interview session with Graeme to be lead by the Founders of the ‘Velo Club Don Logan‘ podcast, followed by Q & A from the audience.
Neil Dryden, Ronde Bicycle Outfitters commented, “To have such a prestigious ambassador for Scottish Cycling coming to our premises is amazing. We often host in-house evenings showcasing various new brands and niche designers, but to have one of my hero’s at the store is really quite exciting.”
Graeme will discuss his amateur and professional cycling career including becoming the World Hour record holder, his brushes with the UCI, rivalry with Chris Boardman, Drugs in cycling and coming right up to date with his world land speed record attempt aboard The Beastie – his latest and most radical bike design.
‘Beastie’ will be on show during the evening and will provide all attendees with an up close and detailed view of the ingenious and revolutionary design the Flying Scotsman built from nothing.
There are a small number of tickets available for ‘A Night with Graeme Obree’ at £18.00 per person. From 7pm – 10pm, the entry price will include complimentary wine, cheese and nibbles.
