Scottish Cycling community shocked and saddened at the death of Ali Speed
Alistair Speed, known locally as Ali, was a longstanding member of the Fife Century Road Club and a former winner of the Fife Clubs Series trophy.
He died after being involved in a collision with a car on the A91 between Strathmiglo and Gateside at around 11.20am.
Friends posted on the Braveheart Cycling Fund forum describing him as “a loving uncle,” “a true gentleman of the sport” and “a great character.”
Messages of support were also given to Mr Speed’s sister Mhairi and the rest of the Speed family who are all well known in the Scottish cycling circuit.
Mr Speed’s death brings the total number of cyclists killed on Scotland’s roads this year to 11.
He was travelling westbound when the tragedy unfolded and police are still appealing for witnesses to come forward to help them with their investigations.
Scottish Cycling continue to lobby for safer roads for all cyclists and ask everyone to lobby the appropriate bodies for a safe and accessible road network.
Our thoughts are with this great cycling family.
