Pic of the day: Ken Laidlaw 2010

This shot was taken by Ian Bell as part of the 2010 Ken Laidlaw sportive.  The event was honoured by Ken Laidlaw himself, returning to Hawick, the town of his birth, from the USA to lead off around 400 riders. A nice touch was the photos taken by Ian and one other photographer, that were made available to the riders free of charge.

More on that event to come.

edit – added a few more pics from the great gallery of the 2010 ride.

    It distresses me how many group cycling photos these days look like ads for care in the community for the elderly. There’s a dearth of young ‘uns on the club scene, with a few exceptions. Respect to Ken though. Legend!

    Cheers John, for commenting. Clubs need to evolve a bit I think, to attract younger riders. History is still important too though. Not sure if the old boys image is off-putting for youngsters?
