Martin Russell’s son, Stuart, is again attempting a number of cycle challenges this year with his friends in Whitelee Warriors, including the Etape Caledonia (81 miles in Perthshire including Schiehallion), The Flying Scotsman Sportive 2015 (Graeme Obree – 77 miles in Ayrshire), Pedal for Scotland (Glasgow to Edinburgh, 110 Miles) and the Bealach na Ba (Pass of the Cattle) – a climb that takes you from sea level to over 2,000 feet in 5 miles. He would again be grateful for any sponsorship in aid of the Beatson Cancer Charity – please see Martin Russell on Sundays.
