Grampian Transport Museum Cyclefest Sportive

Saturday 18 May 2013


The event is run in conjunction with Grampian Transport Museum, Alford, offering three distances, 25 miles, 100kms and 100 miles. With beautiful scenery and challenging routes what better way to spend your Saturday? The routes are over some of Scotland's highest passes with spectacular views

Starting and finishing in Alford, in the foothills of the Cairngorms, the 100 mile route will take riders over the Suie, Cabrach, Lecht and Gairnsheil before returning via Queen's View and Cushnie.

The 100 km route also starts and finishes in Alford with riders experiencing the second half of the 100 mile route.

The 25 mile event misses out the highest roads but is equally scenic and also starts and finishes in Alford.

Billed as one of the toughest sportives (100 mile distance) in the country it is worth doing if only for the breath-taking views.

The routes will be well signed with food stops along the way. This is a non-profit event with any surplus income being used for third world projects

We welcome all entrants. For more information on the available routes and how to enter; check out the Cyclefest link
