“Glasgow Wheelers are delighted to host a talk with Scottish time trial and track legend Graeme Obree next Monday (24th May 2010).”
It’s great to see Greame Obree out and about and being involved in cycling in general. He aborted an attempt on the hour record last year after succumbing to depression when he discovered his latest bike design and position didn’t work on the track.
Graeme, a former Wheeler himself in the early 90s, will be talking about a number of areas: his past competitive experiences; future plans and will be happy to answer any questions from the audience. Any of you who attended his talk last year at the Tramway Theatre in Pollokshields will recognise that he is an outstanding, engaging speaker able to hold a crowd in the palm of his hand without any sign of speech notes. He was aided last time by the prop of his latest bike, replete with a 60 tooth chainring (it may have been bigger actually). ”
Proceedings will kick off shortly after 7pm. Refreshments will be on offer afterwards. The Club would like to offer a warm welcome to the general public to attend in addition to Club members. Tickets available at the door for £5 – outstanding value to hear first hand the stories of an amazing man and amazing athlete – just don’t let him near your washing machine!!!
