Riders must secure their own accommodation in Pitlochry and Aviemore. These are two of the busiest Highland tourist towns so there is plenty to choose from.
Alongside all the usual mechanical and medical support, the organisers will provide a bag transfer system.
Glencoe Ski Centre has limited car parking, so we are asking all entrants to car share.
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.

Sportive entry will include:
British Cycling Insurance, Rider Numbers for person & bike, Timing chip / number for helmet, access to supplies at Feed Stations and a hot beverage and food at the finish.
We don’t do lots of flags or banners or branding, goody bags, free t-shirts, free bidons, flyers for charities or people trying to sell you stuff… in-fact any free promotional crap you don’t need or want.
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.
