Bethany Sportive Coming Soon

Event: Saturday 5th June 2010

In aid of the Bethany Christian Trust, the Bethany Sportive is now in its second year and promises 8000 feet of climbing in its 111 miles - a serious challenge and no mistake. There's a shorter 72 mile route for mere mortals too.

The ride is based in the Southern Scotland, starting and finishing in Bonnyrigg. Riders leave from Lasswade High School, Bonnyrigg and head south over the Moorfoot Hills to Innerleithen where the long and shorter routes split. The long route now takes a spectacularly scenic route around the Borders and both routes meet again just west of Selkirk. For the shorter route, riders return to Lasswade from Innerleithen via the River Tweed and Gala Water valleys. Both routes then return to the High School over the Moorfoot Hills once more. Each participant will be individually timed and the finishing times will be published on the Bethany website after the event. Three well stocked feed stations will also be on hand offering the riders refreshments along the way.

Entries are limited to 400 with an entry fee of £30 per entrant.
