Join us for a weekend of cycling, Mackay Country hospitality and local entertainment in one of the most beautiful parts of the country!
There are two routes to choose from which will take riders through some of the most beautiful countryside in the World. The longest route, the Strathnaver Challenge, will take cyclists on a 63-mile trip. Leaving Tongue riders will head east to Bettyhill before heading inland through Strathnaver to Altnaharra, along Strathmore before heading back to Tongue. The Ben Hope Trial is shorter but still a challenging 48-miles with riders starting and finishing in Tongue on a circuit via Altnaharra and Strathmore.
Although the event will be timed, it is not a race. Both routes will give riders a challenge with plenty of opportunity to demonstrate cycling skills and stamina. It is expected that both routes will be completed in 5 hours.
