Info for Riders:
This event is in its third year. There are three distances at 100 miles, 100 kms and 25 miles.

The routes are over some of Scotland’s highest passes with spectacular scenery. Starting and finishing in Alford, in the foothills of the Cairngorms, the 100 mile route will take riders over the Suie, Cabrach, Lecht and Gairnsheil before returning via Queen’s View and Cushnie. The 100 km route also starts and finishes in Alford with riders experiencing the second half of the 100 mile route. Billed as one of the toughest sportives in the country it is worth doing if only for the breath-taking views.

The 25 mile event misses out the highest roads but is equally scenic and also starts and finishes in Alford. The routes will be well signed with food stops along the way.

This is a non-profit event with any surplus income being used for third world projects (www.kidsaction.org.uk).
