At Tain Sheriff Court today, Rozier narrowly escaped a jail sentence and was instead banned from the road and ordered to undertake unpaid work.
The 1000cc motorbike he was “putting through its paces” was capable of going from zero to 100mph in just five seconds, the court was told.
It is the first time that the Cycling Without Age concept, which began in Denmark in 2012, has been extended to cover an entire country.“It’s easy to see why the video featuring Fraser and his enthusiastic passengers has become a world-wide hit on social media – this is a terrific project,” said Social Security Minister Jeane Freeman.“I’m delighted to announce that the Scottish Government will now work with Cycling Without Age to ensure older people right across Scotland can experience nature and feel the wind in their hair.“We’re already providing some financial support for the scheme here in Falkirk and we want to see this great initiative spread nationwide.”She added that while there was “a lot of work to do” on the detail of the scheme, the Scottish Government would provide financial support allowing elderly people across the country to benefit from similar projects.
Mr Johnston said the scheme had gone from “strength to strength” since it started in Falkirk, adding that he was “delighted” it was to become a national project.
Owners Ian and Jermi offer a warm welcome to all cyclists.
