Organiser Boyd Ross said it was a pleasure that so many local youngsters were getting on their bikes.
He added: “We got a really good turnout. I have to say on the day it was tremendous. There was lots of positive feedback from not just the youngsters but their parents too.
“The location itself was tremendous, there were no incidents, and we even had some very, very young competitors who were a bit put out that they couldn’t take part so they went out with their dads with elongated carriages.
“We were really impressed with the turnout and the day itself and the view we got from the location. It was a very, very fine afternoon.
“We had 28 participants in total. There was nine in the senior event and 19 in the junior event. One of the winning kids did the route in nine minutes.”
The event included a barbecue featured two different routes and was sponsored by Dave Smith, of Skelmonae Wind Farm.
