The Glespin Gallop is a 100 mile circular ride on open roads from Troon in South Ayrshire.
It is a non-competitive social ride, therefore it is up to the rider to time themselves if they so wish.
Date: Sunday 11th June 2017
Well signed route with gpx option and route sheet hand-out.
Drinks and light refreshments available at the finish (included in the price).
All finishers will receive an event medal, certificate and goody bag.
Overview: Starting at sea-level, the route climbs inland to flow along quiet, undulating and varied country roads through several small towns and villages, then extends east and south into Lanarkshire and Dumfries & Galloway.
With a generous 12 hour time-limit you can decide whether it's a day to be amongst the fast folk or a day to enjoy a tour using our 'sights and coffee stop' guide.
A rider information pack containing the route sheet, link to an online map and additional information as to location of toilets, shops, cafes, etc. on the route, will be emailed to participants one week prior to the event.
