McCrae’s Battalion Cycle

This blog is my platform to log the thoughts behind a challenge to ride from Raith Rovers ground Starks Park, Kirkcaldy to Contalmaison in France. The ride will take place in June/July 2016 and in so doing it will allow me the opportunity to pay respects to the players and fans who fought as part of the McCraes Battalion.

My hope is to log: planning, route choice, equipment, training, sponsorship and the trip itself which will coincide with the annual Remembrance pilgrimage to the Cairn in the French Village.

In addition if time and energy allows I will post general thoughts on a few topics which relate to the topics of McCrae’s Battalion, Raith Rovers FC, Cycling and maybe one or two others.
