The Flying Scotsman Sportive

The Flying Scotsman Sportive offers two routes selected personally by legendary Scottish cyclist, Graeme Obree - the Beastie 77m and Old Faithful 44m. Anyone who has followed Graeme Obree and is familiar with his biography, 'The Flying Scotsman' will be aware of the history of 'The Valley' with Galston, Newmills and Darvel prominent during Graeme's early cycling days.

Graeme knows these roads like the back of his hand and has chosen routes to offer a challenge but also allow riders the opportunity to experience the beauty and relatively quiet roads which all add to the cycling experience. The geography around 'The Valley' is such that there is an abundance of rural roads, many of which rise steeply from the valley floor and cross over the hill tops.
