2014 Bike Challenge Sunday 21st September

This bike ride takes place on Sunday 21st September at 9.30am leaving from the Dufftown British Legion and is designed for the moderately fit and the super fit. The long ride is a great test for the keen offroader.

The first section runs from Dufftown up the Cabrach road to the entrance of Glenfiddich estate then over the rough landrover roads through the beautiful middle glen following the river Fiddich to the Suie where hot drinks and biscuits await. There is a good 2km downhill to this point. Then the rider follows the Livet though burns and undulations to Allan Reid carpark. A few hundred yards on the Tombae road leads to the first choice of route. Those who have a taste for more off road challenges can cycle up the Cairn Mulldonich forestry road to the top end of Glen Rinnes back road ( this is a fair challenge). Others may prefer to follow the tar road down Glenrinnes back to Dufftown.

For those reaching the Beatshach junction after the first cut off time there is the option of the route through the Convals back to Dufftown. The enthusiast group can use this route or go back down the tar road.

Cyclists can follow the route that suits them best on the day simply by telling the marshals at the checkpoints which way they are going. The ride can be anything from a mixed off road/tar road day out to a very challenging off road race and all stages in between. Ladies in their 60s on hybrid bikes and adrenaline junkies on full suspension bikes will all find something to suit them.

There is an entry fee of £25 and sponsorship forms are available. Please contact me if you would like a sponsorship form.

Please check out the map of the route and then download the entry form which you can email back to me. I look forward to hearing from you all.
