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

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.
