Scottish 24 hour time trial records

Scottish cycling records are ratified and published on theĀ 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.

Scottish men’s 24 hour time trial record

The 24 hour time trial record is understandably not often broken. It’s a gruelling distance and there aren’t many events held.

On Scottish Cycling’s official list of records, George Berwick still holds the 24 hour record, a mark that has stood since 1967, although I have been advised that Phil Kelman set a distance of 479.192 miles on 23rd 24th July 2011 at the Mersey Roads 24, which is a BC event, so should qualify for the Scottish record. It’s possible that this record was not ‘claimed’ with SC or that their info hasn’t been updated.

1967 G.Berwick Glasgow R.C. 448.70 miles
2011 Phil Kelman Dundee Thistle CC 479.192 miles

Scottish veteran men 24 hour time trial record

1967 Archie Speed Fife Century Road Club 383.52 miles

Veteran women 24 hour time trial record

2007 Ginny Pollard 384.750 miles, on 1st July at the Mersey Roads 24.
This record wasn’t listed in Jock Shaw’s info or SCs record list but I’m advised it would have been a Scottish record.

2018 Christina Mackenzie Stirling Bike Club 431.64 miles
This seems to have been a British VTTA record, not a ‘Scottish’ record listed on Scottish Cycling’s record list.

1967 H.S.Spelling Wren Wheelers 396.18 miles
