The Pedaling Profs at the Squinty Bridge after their ride from Newcastle

Glasgow Dental School’s cycle team, The Pedalling Profs, completed  its fourth venture, the ‘Blinking Eye to Squinty Bridge  Ride’ from Newcastle to Glasgow, over the Bank Holiday weekend of 1-3 May 2015.

Despite a head-wind, the weather was dry and bright for the first two days and we saw some glorious scenery - Northumbria and the Borders at their best. The final leg, however, from Musselburgh to Glasgow along the Union and Forth Clyde Canal paths was extremely wet and both bikes and riders were mud-encrusted by the time we reached the Squinty Bridge on Sunday evening.

Despite a number of challenges along the way, managed ably by our fantastic support crew, it was a great team event and we're all looking forward to next year's outing.
