It was Sunday the sixth of March and Cyril, Ziai, Manuela, Mia, George, Pablo and Cameron assembled at Castlegate with one common goal – to ride to Cove Bay and a bounty of cheap cider.

The first part of the route took them around the Nigg Bay Golf course past the lighthouse. The wind was against the 7 adventurers but they persevered, finally reaching their destination. After emptying the shop of a local delicacy, White Ace, they made their way down to the bay where festivities took place despite the efforts of the breeze.

After this a strange thing happened; The sun, wind, excersise, and cider collaborated to produce some curious behaviour in the 7. Bicycles were used improperly but no lasting harm was done, Cameron’s knees would soon heal.

Next on the agenda was tea, a likely establishment was chosen near the bay and the steaming pots did eventually arrive after an improperly long wait. It is thought that important BeCycle business was discussed at this point, however no records survive.

The brave cyclist’s mission complete, they turned their handlebars homeward and despite an encounter with some cows, made it home safely.
