The SCC was out this weekend on two wheels as usual but this ride was a little different. A few weeks ago Shona, from Scotland, reached out to us wondering about joining us for a road ride. We often get questions about road riding in this area from upcoming visitors but what made this one different was that Shona was also looking for a pilot.

Shona is raising money for Guide Dogs which is a charity close to her heart as she is visually impaired. She loves cycling and has a tandem bike to help her get out on the road.
Alan Journeau, a long time Director for the SCC, actually owns a tandem bike and offered to lend it out. The SCC also has an experienced pilot – Paul Skinner, Director of Road Riding for the SCC, so out they went on Saturday, 80km along Silver Creek […]
