In a short number of years the 3 Pistes Cycle Sportive has turned into an iconic, classic event.
Over 1000 riders tackle the 103mile course that takes in 3 Scottish ski centres (Glenshee, Lecht, Cairngorm), taking them over 5 of the 6 highest roads in the UK, including 4 long climbs with 20% gradients.
In autumn 2015 we added a 2nd sportive up the private road to Lowther Hills ski club, Scotland and 2nd highest strip of tarmac in the UK.
For the 3rd edition of 3 Pistes we are gave riders the opportunity to ride the remaining 2 ski centres of Nevis Range and Glencoe with a fantastic 3 day, 300miles Tour of the Highlands. It was a massive success. So it’s coming back for a 3rd year.

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.
