I will be on Reporting Scotland this evening after 6.30pm talking about this remarkable adventure in 1911 to drive over Ben Nevis in a Model T Ford - well worth 5 minutes of your time to watch... look out for the dynamite! player.bfi.org.uk/film/watch-motoring-over-ben-nevis-1911/ ...

Can I ride 450 miles in 24 hours? Attempting the 24hr Wattbike World Record on September 19th/20th at Infiniti Centre in Braehead, Glasgow - for the STV Appeal - raising money for children in Scotland. Please come along and ride with me - I can't leave you behind as these are static bikes ;-) And I will need lots of good chat and moral support! The target for all 5 bikes is to cover 2400 miles - so 100mph - the equivalent of Glasgow to Cairo. It starts at 2pm on Saturday 19th and goes all through the night until 2pm on Sunday 20th. I need support riders all the way through - all ages and ability of riders are welcome so help spread the word and get signed up. You can make a donation to the Appeal on the day or ahead of time - I will post a fundraising link in the next few weeks ... See MoreSee Less

Bryan HuttonYip hour or 2 if you need it. I might be a bit bonkers here as I am away to Galloway Gallop at 4am on 20th. But if you need some people at night or morning I could do 2am till 4am.
