Scottish National Olympic Time Trial Championship: Tour of the Meldons

Sunday 21st April 2019


Edinburgh RC

The Tour of the Meldons is one of the classic time trial events on the Scottish Calendar with a history dating back to the 1930s. It was then that Jim Wight of the Edinburgh Road Club conceived the mountain time trial circuit including the climbs of Shiplaw and the Meldons. Though at that time the Shiplaw section was but a rough track, the course grew in popularity and the Tour of the Meldons was established.  Edinburgh Road Club organised the race for many years until the club was disbanded during the Second World War. In 1974 Edinburgh Road Club was reformed and in 1975 the Meldons was reborn and has continued since, enjoying a high profile by attracting top riders from Scotland and further afield.
