About the Event

Info for Riders

The sportif is 97.3Km with around 750m of ascent so open to all. A staged start is planned at the reasonable hour of 8am to avoid a queue at Kirkliston traffic lights. The riders will be asked to group based on expected time to complete the route. 

The event will close at 4pm so riders need to be able to complete the circuit in less than 8 hours. Leaving the feed station by 1pm. The bike marshalls, sweep van and route signage will be cleared by these times.
