About BUTE WHEELERS
The Bute Wheelers Cycling Club ride regularly
around and sometimes off-island on Saturdays and Sundays, and in the
spring and summer evenings we have a 10 mile Time Trial and Hill Climb
on the Serpentine,
which is a classic alpine-like climb next to the sea!
If you are an islander (or regularly come over to
Bute) and want to join our club, we are looking for new members. Get
in touch via the Facebook
page or contact Murray.
Annually we hold a triathlon in May, see more info
here. And the cycling weekend in September see
info here. Come and join us and play on
the Buteful island of Bute.
About the Isle of Bute

which includes a ride of about 8 miles between the two ferries that
