Persistent rain failed to put off over 120 cyclists from taking part in engineering disaster relief charity RedR's Canal Cycle Challenge in Scotland last Sunday. Organisers hope the event will raise up to £7,000.

The 77km route began in Glasgow, following the Forth & Clyde canal to the Falkirk Wheel. From here it took the Union Canal to finish at Ratho near Edinburgh. ICE vice president Gordon Masterton and MSP Mark Ruskell took part in the ride and spoke to damp participants about the role of infrastructure engineers in poverty relief and the promotion of cycling.
