Bealach Beag

Saturday 6 May 2017
BEALACH BEAG 2010

Event Description

Quad burning ascents. Heart racing descents. Majestic mountain scenery. Rider camaraderie. Highland hospitality.

At Hands On Events, we know that the best cyclosportives are about passionate people coming together to challenge themselves in spectacular landscapes.

The Bealach is the UK’s biggest road climb at 2053ft (626m) from sea level in just 6mls (10k). It is set in a fabulous unspoilt landscape with outstanding views of the sea and the hills. The Applecross Peninsula is renowned as a gem in Scotland’s crown of natural wonders.

The route will take you south east from the picturesque village of Shieldaig down through Glen Shieldaig to  Tornapress.  Things get tough now as the road swings sharply upward for the main climb to Bealach-na-Ba. The section of road from Tornapress up the Bealach and down to Applecross campsite is closed for the event. The reward is great as a massive vista over the west coast and the Isle of Skye opens before you as you plunge down to sea level again at Applecross.  The hard work is not over as the next section around the north of the peninsula has hardly any flat as it clings to the coast, past rocky cliffs and sandy coves. Finally you return to charming Sheildaig nestling in the shelter of its loch.  There the enthusiastic locals will assure you a warm highland welcome (and some good grub!)

This event is 72 km
