Callum SkinnerCallum Skinner, Scotland’s World Cup winning medallist, is urging local cycle fanatics to join ENABLE Scotland for its 24 hour Cycle the World challenge at Knockhill Racing Circuit on 28 August 2015.

The event is running for its fourth year and has already raised an outstanding £130,000 for people in Scotland who have learning disabilities.

Although Callum’s schedule means he can’t make the event, he is urging cyclists across Scotland to take part.

Callum said: “I’ve never participated in a 24 hour event, but this looks like a great challenge for all cyclists. Being used to a smooth indoor track, the idea of cycling on a motorsport circuit is really appealing. The hills, duration and being exposed to the elements will be a big test.”

Jennifer Niven, Corporate and Events Fundraising Manager at ENABLE Scotland, said, “I am very grateful Callum has been able to take the time to help spread the word about the event again this year.

“Cycle the World is a really exciting day and you can take part as a solo rider or in a team of up to six people. Everyone taking part and even those watching from the trackside are on a real high. It can be tough during the night but we always have a team there ready to cheer people on and give them that extra push of motivation just when they need it.

“There is nothing quite like the atmosphere at Knockhill Racing Circuit when our Cycle the World riders cross the finish line after 24 hours of pedalling!

“If anyone is thinking about signing up or wants more information please get in touch with us. You won’t regret it.”
