Scottish Cycling are saddened to hear of the passing of Peebles Cycling Club president Carl Lane. His funeral will be held in Melrose on Wednesday 6th May.

Carl Lane - President

A frustrated RAF PT instructor he fed and watered the armed forces instead and to this day his catering remains legendary. He took part in many sporting events representing RAF, one of the most memorable a triathlon in Germany where his swim was supervised by armed guards to ensure he didn’t transgress off course into the east from the west. He first took up mountain biking after he moved in next door to two local girls in Peebles. He thought if these two girls can mountain bike then it can’t be that hard so he took up their invitation to join them on a ride-out. Needless to say he met his match and the rest, as they say, is history.
