- What’s On
Denis Devlin is the author of A History of Scotland’s Oldest Cycling Club: Hawick Cycling Club 1881–2010. Denis will be in conversation with two other guests discussing his book and giving an insight into cycling in years gone by. Hawick Cycling Club is arguably the oldest existing club in Scotland, if not in the UK. It was formed back in 1881 and before the First World War were champions of Scotland competing in front of 40,000 with victory parades through the streets of Hawick. It has been home to many champion cyclists over the years and up to present day. The most famous of them all is Ken Laidlaw, the first, and still only one of three Scots to have completed the Tour de France.
Come and hear some fascinating tales of derring-do on a bicycle.
Refreshments will be available by donation.
