The Elite Cycle Warriors have weathered another challenging week . Come rain or shine, these passionate cyclists continue to pedal away both before and after work, even opting for lunchtime cycling sessions. And when the sun dares to show its face, they take advantage of the opportunity by relaxing as a team on the grass beside their workplace.

Despite their current lead in the West Lothian race, they refuse to let their guard down. With five days left, anything can happen. So, they remain sharp and focused on their mission.

Driven by an insatiable desire for victory, the Elite Cycle Warriors power on mile after mile towards the finish line. Asphalt stretches before them endlessly, and they welcome the sun on their faces and the wind in their ears. They will persist until they become champions – the unbeatable Elite Cycle Warriors.
