Scottish Cities Cycle Challange

Cycle Sportive , Inverness – Friday, 13 Sep 2013

Event Summary

Event Overview

The event is planned to take place over 4 days from Friday 13th to Monday 16th September 2013 covering some 340 miles through some of Scotland’s most glorious countryside. Hopefully participants will be able to enjoy this as they cover over 200 miles in the first two days! They can then take it easy for the last two with only around 60 miles to cover on the final days cycling between Glasgow and Edinburgh.

The Scottish Cities Cycle Challenge has been put together by two brothers and their friends, all of whom have been touched by cancer in recent years. The main aim of the event is to raise funds for cancer research and it is being supported by Cancer Research UK who have provided much assistance to the organizing committee.

If all applicants could aim to raise a minimum of £250 that would be absolutely fantastic. For 4 days of effort (for some) during the event and the training beforehand that is surely a very reachable target.
