Graeme Obree to ride Tour o’ the Borders
Graeme Obree, the ‘Flying Scotsman’, an utter legend in the realm of cycling, world record holder, world champion and a massive character in Scottish sport, is going to be riding The Tour o’ the Borders this year.
The event team are delighted not only that he is riding the event but he is also agreed to be an ambassador for them.
As Graeme says: ”I’m delighted to have been asked by Tesco Bank to be the event ambassador for the Tesco Bank Tour O The Borders this year. It’s always a treat for cyclists to have the roads to themselves and the route looks really enjoyable through some of Scotland’s beautiful countryside. I can’t wait to get on my bike and experience it and I’d encourage others to take on the challenge and join me.
“I’m also passionate about encouraging people of all ages to lead a healthy and active lifestyle which is good for both mental and physical health.”
