The 47 mile cycling event from Glasgow to Edinburgh saw the team – John Murray, George McLeod, Ian Treger, Scott McAndrew, Neil Donald, Onder Ozdemir, Wendy Farmer and Stephen Allen – cross the finish line in 3 hours 45 minutes.

The PoLHA team raised money for Tartan Army Children’s Charity, which supports disadvantaged children in Scotland and will donate half of the proceeds (£200) to Homestart Leith which provides care to local families.

Neil Donald, ICT Manager at PoLHA who organised the team, said: “We have some keen cyclists at PoLHA so it made sense for us to jump on our bikes and raise money for a good cause.”
