 KINTYRE WAY ULTRA

Saturday 5th May 2018

As seen on the BBC Adventure Show

    Cyclosportive 42mile

This new eventwill appeal to anyone who feels that 73 miles of tough off-road cycling is just a bit too much!

It is competitive because you are competing against yourself in terms of strength and stamina but a sportive is not a race and there are no prizes.  However, you still have the benefit of electronic timing.

Riders briefings will be sent out prior to the event and include more detailed information & maps. Please visit the website and our facebook page for further information and updates.

Distance: 42 miles. Tayinloan to Campbeltown

Difficulty Rating: Think 42 miles on varied terrain up and over the hills of the Kintyre peninsula. Hardly ever on level ground and only 8 miles on tarmac. We like to think it's a tough but achievable event with the right training! Check out our facebook page for Relive clips from last years event.

Check-in: Please note that ALL entrants for the cyclosportive MUST check in.

  Check-in:  Saturday 5th May 08:30 to 10:15 at Tayinloan Village Hall, PA29 6XG (OS grid ref 698 459 )

Start time: 10:30   Overall time allowed: 9 hours

You are expected to make your own way to the start but please note there is no parking available in Tayinloan village. Either park at the Gigha Ferry car park (½ mile away) or get your co-driver to head for Campbeltown.

Entry fee per person:

    Standard   £49 up to 6/4/18
    Late entry £54 up to 15/4/18
