Rider Numbers for this weekend’s Tour of the Highlands

Just 4 sleeps to go until Tour of the Highlands 2017.

Meets us at Glencoe Mountain Resort, A82, Glencoe PH49 4HZ

CAR PARKING AT GLENCOE – We have been allocated 200 car park spaces on the right immediately as you enter the car park. This will be cordoned off on the Friday. If you are planning to arrive on Friday evening and park overnight please park elsewhere in the car park then on Saturday morning manoeuvre your car into space as directed by the marshals. Glencoe expect upwards of 500 other cars for the Scottish Downhill Mountain Bile Championships. 

Registration is from 6.30am – 7am

YOU MUST BRING PHOTO ID and HELMET to registration.

We will give you:

  • a timing chip to be placed on the left hand side of your helmet
  • rider number for back
  • seat post number
  • duplicate seat post number to use like airport luggage tag on your bag
  • Your cycle top if you ordered one at entry

We will collect from you

  • One not too big sports bag with your gear for the weekend. You will label it with the number tag given to you

BAG DROP

Please don’t pack laptops, ipads, anything that is fragile – particularly large screens that crack. You’ll be riding, sleeping and eating. Pretend it’s the 90’s again.

We will collect your bags each day and drive them to the finish. On day 2 we will have a double drop, 1 van will go to Aviemore and the other to Cairngorm. Our advice is bring a small back pack for Cairngorm warm clothing so you hang about and enjoy the view, the party and the grub, then ride down to Aviemore (Cairngorm Hotel) to collect your gear.

START

Riders will start in groups of 30 every 3 minutes from 7.30am-8am. There is no wave system, you start with your pals when you are ready, first come first served.

If you are one of the lucky ones you’ll get to start and ride on Saturday with this lady… British Circuit Champion and winner of tonight’s Matrix Tour Series race in Motherwell. Look after her please, she’s never ever been to Glencoe nor ridden over Ben Lawers or Schiehallion. BTW she loves a blether and cake!!!

eileenroe_motherwell_2017_rdax_75

RIDER SUPPORT

There will be 3 sweep vans, 2 mobile mechanics, 2 ambulances and a load of other support vehicles on the route. Most of the route has mobile signal. We will give you the race control numbers at registration

Accidents / Emergencies

If you see a fellow rider in difficulty please stop and check they are ok. Stay with them if required and if no mobil signal send someone else onwards to get help.

For serious issues your first call should always be 999, but please also call us, our team might be close by.

GROUP RIDING

Days 1 and 2 both start with a gently rolling, predominately downhill parcorps. It is most likely (in fact utterly desirable from a riders point of view) that you will remain in your packs of 20 for upwards of 50km. Both days feature key trunk roads through the Scottish Highlands which are wide enough for overtaking. Please be courteous to your fellow road users. It is perfectly legal for you to ride in pairs. Please DO NOT ride more than 2 abreast EVER. When the road narrows (particularly early stages of Laggan Rd on Day 3) please allow other road users to pass safely.

SAFE DESCENDING

Day 1 features a couple of tricky, narrow, steep down hills at Ben Lawers, Schiehallion and Trinafour. You have another 2 days ahead of you with faster more fun and SAFER downhills, so cool your jets on Day 1 and enjoy the scenery.

OLD A9 BIKE TRACK DAY 1

The old A9 bike track features bollards and a few sections of crappy tarmac. It’s also a good steady downhill where you can pick up speed. Try to avoid sitting right on each other’s wheels and make sure you keep your eyes scanning ahead… for the best steak pie shop in the world at House of Bruar.

CORRAN FERRY

Cyclists get on the ferry for free. They are aware you are coming. DO NOT RIDE onto the pier or ferry. There will be a feed stop before you board. Unfortunately the toilets are on the other side of the water. If you are caught short pop into the pub – they sell the most amazing cakes. Buy one and spend a penny.

We give you the best food stops and aid stations of any UK sportive, the finish climbs have big sound systems and a northern soul party atmosphere.

There’s mechanics, broom wagons, medics and it’s all organised by a bunch of cycling daft professional comedians… so it is fun and relaxed.

Days 1 & 2 will see you grind over and through the most stunning scenery. Day 3 will be the fastest century ride you will ever do.

You organise your own accommodation in Pitlochry and Aviemore. These are the 2 biggest tourist town in the Highlands so you have plenty of options for all budgets, from wild camping to 5 star luxury.

We give you the best food stops and aid stations of any UK sportive, the finish climbs have big sound systems and a northern soul party atmosphere.

There’s mechanics, broom wagons, medics and it’s all organised by a bunch of cycling daft professional comedians… so it is fun and relaxed.

Days 1 & 2 will see you grind over and through the most stunning scenery. Day 3 will be the fastest century ride you will ever do.

Rider notes 2016

Hello Tour of the Highlanders, Not long now until your mammoth 3 day adventure. Below are the basic points of knowledge that you need before rolling out. Finer detail on road conditions and points of caution will flow at the start of next week. The only tarmac we have concerns over is Ben Lawers up and down.

Day 1 – Saturday 28th May

Start HQ – Glencoe Ski Centre, PH49 4HZ

Finish HQ – Pitlochry High School, East Moulin rd, Pitlochry. PH16 5ET

Route – Glencoe – Ben Lawers – Schiehallion – Errochty – Old A9 – Pitlochry

Registration, number & timing chip allocation 7.30am – 8.15am

Start 8.30am – 8.45am (20 riders every 2 minutes) PROMPT

CAR PARKING AT GLENCOE – We have been allocated 100 car park spaces on the right immediately as you enter the car park. This will be cordoned off on the Friday. If you are planning to arrive on Friday evening and park overnight please park elsewhere in the car park then on Saturday morning manoeuvre your car into space as directed by the marshals. Glencoe expect upwards of 500 other cars for the Scottish Downhill Mountain Bile Championships. 

Day 2 – Sunday 29th May – The Classic 3 Pistes Cycle Sportive

Start HQ – Pitlochry High School, East Moulin rd, Pitlochry. PH16 5ET

Finish HQ – Cairngorm Mtn, Aviemore, Inverness-Shire PH22 1RB

Finish HQ – Glencoe Ski Centre, PH49 4HZ

Sign on – 8.15am-8.30am

Start – 8.30am-8.45am

BAG DROP SYSTEM

Each morning you can put your weekend kit bag / suitcase in the bag drop van and we will transport it to that day’s finish.

We will provide you with a luggage label. Ensure it is securely fastened and has your ride number written clearly.

On day 2 you can collect your bag at Cairngorm car park finish up until 5.30pm. Alternatively you can get it in Aviemore at Cairngorm Hotel car park from 6pm – 7pm

Our advice for faster finishers on Day 2 is have your kit bag and pack a small rucksack / courier bag in it. At Cairngorm throw your change of clothes into it and ride to your Aviemore accommodation then collect larger bag in the evening.

FEED STOPS

We pride ourselves in overstocking the feed stops with yummy goodies. There will be plenty of bananas, high 5 gels, water, powder for drinks, Aussie bites, flap jacks, chocolate bars, soreen, pretzels and whatever else we like the look of in Costco.

 

Day 1 Toilet & Feed Stops

30km – Tyndrum – Toilet & shop

38km – Crainlarich – Toilet & Shop

60km – Killin Village Hall – Full Feed Stop & toilets

83km – Innerwick forest car park – Full Feed Stop & toilets

83km – Spean Bridge at Commando Monument – Feed only

99km – Corpach– Full Feed Stop & Toilets

146km – Corran Ferry – Full Feed Stop & Toilets

GROUP RIDING

Days 1 and 2 both start with a gently rolling, predominately downhill parcorps. It is most likely (in fact utterly desirable from a riders point of view) that you will remain in your packs of 20 for upwards of 50km. Both days feature key trunk roads through the Scottish Highlands which are wide enough for overtaking. Please be courteous to your fellow road users. It is perfectly legal for you to ride in pairs. Please DO NOT ride more than 2 abreast EVER. When the road narrows (particularly early stages of Laggan Rd on Day 3) please allow other road users to pass safely.

SAFE DESCENDING

Day 1 features a couple of tricky, narrow, steep down hills at Ben Lawers, Schiehallion and Trinafour. You have another 2 days ahead of you with faster more fun and SAFER downhills, so cool your jets on Day 1 and enjoy the scenery.

OLD A9 BIKE TRACK DAY 1

The old A9 bike track features bollards and a few sections of crappy tarmac. It’s also a good steady downhill where you can pick up speed. Try to avoid sitting right on each other’s wheels and make sure you keep your eyes scanning ahead… for the best steak pie shop in the world at House of Bruar.

CORRAN FERRY

Cyclists get on the ferry for free. They are aware you are coming. DO NOT RIDE onto the pier or ferry. There will be a feed stop before you board. Unfortunately the toilets are on the other side of the water. If you are caught short pop into the pub – they sell the most amazing cakes. Buy one and spend a penny.

BROOM WAGON & MECHANICS

On days 1 and 3 we will have mobile mechanics and 2 broom vehicles following the course. They will also be at the start of each day for any last minute tinkering. On Day 2 we will also have static mechanics at Glenshee and Corgarff.

Many of the support team are professional stand up comedians. On Saturday evening in Pitlochry we will be putting on a comedy show for you. Entry to the show will be free for TOTH riders.

You will NOT get a medal. You are a grown adult and probably experienced cyclist. Medals are for 5k fun runners or people who finish top three in a proper race.

We spend your money giving you a damn good day with great feed stops, lots of assistance and a massive party at the top of Cairngorm.
