Phil McLaughlin

I have been mountain biking for around 4 years. I had previously played amatuer football until 5 years ago when i realised everone was getting faster or was it i was getting slower?! My son Aiden who was 7 at the time really didnt take to football but he wanted to give mountain biking a try . So we bought bike and came along to the club. I started with a hard tail which i have only recently changed to a full suss bike. To be like the cool kids. I mainly cycle up and around the lomond hills but take part in races mainly the longer distance events. I have competed at Selkirk MTB marathon, Tour De Ben Nevis, Muckmeddan and hope to do more this year. I am a team leader at Meedies bike club having done my Trail Cycle Leader Award and enjoy helping the kids get more confident in there abilty and putting smiles on their faces
