Graeme Obree added

"Last year's event was really enjoyable. I set off with the intention of riding the shorter course and chatting with as many riders as possible. I ended up riding the longer course and this allowed me the chance to share a chat with a huge number of riders of all abilities and from lots of different backgrounds. This proved to be an inspired choice as the feedback I got was enlightening and the general consensus was the Sportive was proving to be something special.

Well, I can confirm that the work that went into organising last year's event was quite incredible with a huge effort from all parties to ensure a safe event on some quite exceptional roads. The same focus and concentration will be brought to bear to make this year's event even more special.

Special thanks to South Ayrshire Council for their most energetic support of the Graeme Obree Ayrshire Sportive and to Auchincruive SAC for providing the event HQ infrastructure.

I hope to see lots of old and new faces on the start line on 29th July.
All the best."
