Pedalling Profs 2016 - The Borders Run

Profs taking a rest

The Pedalling Profs event for 2016 was a cycle from Dumfries to Troon over three days from Friday 29 April to Sunday 1 May. The cyclists included University of Glasgow staff Ziad Al-Ani, Jeremy Bagg, Robert McKerlie, Al Ross and Richard Welbury; Glasgow Dental Alumni Fiona Beddis and Graeme Wright; and Newcastle colleagues Alan Beddis and Bob Wassall. As always, Mike and Rosie Broad formed an excellent support team. The weather was generally poor and the terrain hilly but the evening refreshment sessions were very enjoyable. The demise of the clutch on the University minibus that was serving as the support vehicle provided an additional challenge on the final day, but the cycle was completed and raised £435 for the Dental Appeal.
