Poppyscotland Sportive

Sunday 30 September 2018

Event Description

The Poppyscotland Sportive starts and finishes at Prestonpans Community Centre, taking riders through the stunning countryside of East Lothian and the Borders. Now in it’s fifth year, the three different routes provide a real challenge for riders of all abilities:  

Short route (77km) – perfect for the 1st time Sportive rider.Follow the beautiful and famous East Lothian Golf Coast Road and then head up into some hills via Gifford to test the legs. It’s generally downhill from here back to the coast at Longniddry and to the finish.

Medium Route (110km) – a fairly tough ride awaits you after the flat ride out to North Berwick. Things kick upwards from there with a long climb up into the Lammermuirs and over the infamous ‘Rigg’. But then it’s pretty much downhill all the way back but with a couple of ‘testers’ on the way.

Long Route (162km) - a truly epic day in the saddle awaits after the flat ride out to North Berwick. Then you’re up and over the Lammermuirs and down onto the delightfully quiet roads of the Scottish Borders.  Loop round by Chirnside before refuelling at Duns for the long haul back over the hills into East Lothian.
