Cycle Cairngorms Sportive

Event Date: 19 - 20 September 2009

Event Website and Entry:

Cycle Cairngorms is a 2-day sportive around the beautiful Cairngorms National Park, starting and finishing at Coylumbridge near Aviemore.

The route takes in two huge climbs to the ski stations of Lecht and Glenshee (both over 2000ft above sea level) giving the event a truly Alpine feel. If this all sounds too much, you can choose to ride just Day One of the event.

The aim of the event is to raise funds to help people with disabilities enjoy an outdoor holiday in the Cairngorms National Park. It is organised by the Speyside Trust a small, independent registered Scottish Charity, based at Badaguish Outdoor Centre.

Entries are available for teams, sponsorship raisers and non sponsored riders.

The Charity - Speyside Trust

People with disabilities love the challenge of the outdoors too. Please support their work.

All proceeds from this event will go to the Speyside Trust, a small, independent registered Scottish Charity, providing respite care and outdoor activity holidays for children and adults with special needs.

It is based at Badaguish Outdoor Centre near Aviemore in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park and provides outdoor education, training and supported employment for people with disabilities so that they can enjoy the Outdoors too.

The Centre welcomes people of all abilities and it is an ideal place for them to explore, learn and develop new and exciting skills, some of which they have never experienced before.
