Cycling in the Straths

Saturday 25 May 2019
Start

Event Description

Cycling in the Straths will return on 25th May 2019; are you up for the challenge?

Join us from Saturday 25th May for a fun filled weekend of cycling and Mackay Country hospitality.

For the main cycling event on Saturday choose from two routes which will take you 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 6 hours.

Following the days cycling event cyclists can enjoy live music in the Ben Loyal Hotel from 9pm.

All profits from Cycling in the Straths will be used to help local communities and causes throughout Mackay Country.

Now open for online entries here. Early bird £25 until January 2019.
