Arthur Campbell RR

2014 Race - Sat 11th July 2015

In memorial to Arthur Campbell the Glasgow Wheelers' annual RR is held in his name rather than the previous Kirkintilloch Trophy RR held for many years.
After the inaugural editions were held over the Lake of Menteith course, the last four years have seen the use of the Stewarton circuit, south of Newton Mearns, using the A77. The course has been used in the Drummond Trophy and was also used in the 2010 Scottish Road Race Champs. Such a tough course can only produce a proper champion and is therefore a fitting tribute to this great man who contributed so much to this Club and this nation's cycling tradition. The event is being organised this year by Kallen Kerr.


This year there will just be one race which will be part of the WOSCA RR 2015 Series. Open to 3rd/4th Cat riders it tackles several laps of the Stewarton circuit over a 50 mile course.
