That massive cycling event is coming up in Scotland on Aug. 3-13, and will combine multiple world championships at one time and location, with 13 different disciplines awarding titles. The only events missing will be cyclo-cross and gravel, in the biggest cycling event ever.

Maple Ridge’s Maggie Coles-Lyster will compete in elite women’s road race event, while Ryan Tougas will race in the elite mens BMX Racing.

Coles-Lyster was Canada’s first-ever junior world champion in track cycling in 2017, and has since raced to numerous medal finishes in international competition.

Coles-Lyster is also devoted to yoga, and has been known to take a photo of herself doing a pose in front of a landmark as she travels for competition, so she can add a Glasgow landmark.

Tougas is a Canadian champion who also competes internationally. He and brother Alex finished first and second at the Canadian championships in the summer of 2021.
