Isle of Mull Cyclosportive 2015

Cycle Sportive , Tobermory – Sunday, 07 Jun 2015

Registered Sportive
Supported by Scottish Cycling

Event Summary

Event Overview

The Isle of Mull Sportive circumnavigates the Hebridean isle on either 44 or 87 miles of quiet roads, climbing 8600ft (4500ft) as you pass through mile after mile of spectacularly scenic Scottish countryside.

This isn't a closed road event - it hardly needs to be. Aside from other cyclists, the main distractions will be the views and the wildlife. Most of the route is on small single-track roads, well sign-posted, marshalled and with food and water stops laid on. 

There are a choice of routes to suit your appetite. As well as the 87 mile (140km) route with 8600ft (2600m)of climbing, there's a 44 mile (70km) option too, with 4500ft (1371m) climbing to test you. 

The Isle of Mull Cycle Club are working hard to repeat this increasingly popular event for the fifth year and give you a memorable day in the saddle. If your legs fail you, we'll bring you back to where you started in a sag wagon. 

As much as possible of your £25 entry fee will go toward good causes - we'll be distributing all proceeds to charities and volunteer organisations on Mull.

Both courses start from Tobermory on Sunday 7th June. 8am for the long course, 9.30 am for the short course. 


Registration on Saturday 6th June, from 7:30pm in the Aros Hall, Main Street, Tobermory.  

Full details will be sent to you before the event.
