Come to the Isle of Mull on Scotland's west coast for a bike event that not only offers challenging climbs, but takes you along quiet single track roads winding around one of the most scenic coastlines in the country. Mull is renowned for it's variety, beauty and wildlife. But it's also a cyclist's paradise, a secret that the Isle of Mull Cycle Club want to share again on June 9th by hosting their increasingly popular cyclosportive that circumnavigates the island.

The start and finish is on Tobermory's waterfront ('Balamory' to the under-five!), chosen not just because of the backdrop, but because it's right outside a bar. Challenging climbs, beautiful scenery and a pint waiting for you at the end - what more can you want? Their are two routes to choose from, both with feed stops, marshalling and a sag wagon bringing up the rear if your legs fade. The 'short' route is 70km around the North of the island with 1000m of climbing, whilst the longer 140km course takes you through Mull's mountainous heart, with 1700m of climbing. Both routes' return is up the island's west coast, a wild and magnificent coastline that is recognised as one of Scotland's great bike rides. 

Waiting for you at the end will be a complimentary meal in McGochan's bar, where you will be able to sit in the sun sipping a pint, watching the competitors return.
