Etape Loch Ness

Lee Craigie is saddling up next to her older sibling Kim, a rugby international, to take on this Etape Loch Ness.

Inverness-based Lee, who was recently appointed as Active Nation Commissioner for Scotland, signed up her sister in secret, to encourage her return to cycling after a six-year absence.

While Lee, 40, has travelled the world representing Scotland, 43-year-old Kim has also made her mark on sport. As well as being a Scottish women’s rugby international, she has also competed in mountain biking, clocking impressive results at national championship level.

But that all changed for the older Craigie sibling when her son, Moss, came along and she decided to focus on her family.

Kim had mentioned that she missed her active lifestyle and wanted to return to fitness with a goal to aim for – so Lee took the initiative and entered her sister into Etape Loch Ness without her knowledge.
