Becky’s Bike Ride, Sunday 5th August 2018

This annual event, one of the most significant dates in the ETC calendar, is when we come together as a club to remember Becky Scott.

Becky was an active member of Exeter Tri Club who participated in and helped at all the events.  She did everything with a smile on her face and was never frightened to have a go at anything.

Sadly, Becky lost her life in a cycling accident in 2013, aged just 24.  At that time she and her family were training for the Lochaber 100.  This is a century bike ride starting and finishing in Fort William, Scotland.  Becky had chosen this event in her usual way. Although it was a challenge it wasn’t a particularly competitive race – just the pleasure of taking part in a beautiful place.

Becky’s Bike Ride is our opportunity to remember her and the legacy she left the club.

There will be two separate rides, with both groups starting and finishing at Double Locks pub, Exeter (all regulars, please note the change of venue from previous years! This is due to the current upheaval around Exeter Quay).

The faster/longer group will meet at the pub at 8.45am for a 9am departure with the slower/shorter ride meeting at 9.15 leaving the pub at 9.30. On both rides there will be a coffee and cake stop courtesy of the Tri Club. Both rides will finish around midday at Double Locks where food and drink can be purchased. Everybody is welcome at this event and it’s very much about having an enjoyable, sociable cycle rather than a record-breaking training ride. For anyone who doesn’t fancy the cycle, please feel free to just come to the pub.

We are in need of a few people who are happy to lead each of the rides so please let Juliette know if you are able to help out.

For any queries or for further information please contact Juliette (social@exetertri.co.uk).
