22nd July 2017
The Dunoon Sportives are part of the “West’s Best” Cycle Festival to be held in Dunoon over the weekend of the 22nd and 23rd of July 2017.
Visit : www.nofussevents.co.uk for entries and further information.
There are four stunning rides to choose from all starting from towns iconc pier in Dunnon, Dunoon is the main resort on the beautiful Cowal Peninsula and the maritime gateway to the Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park.
The family ride is predominantly flat ride along the coast towards Innellan before returning to Dunoon and a short out and back along the front of the town itself. Its a great opportunity to get out together, family bike rides are a great way to spend together, chat and enjoy the health benifits and fill yer lungs with the pure west coast fresh air. After all we all grew up hearing people tell us to “go out and get some fresh air.” Have you ever wondered if fresh air is really as good for you as your mother always claimed? According to recent studies, the answer is a qualified yes, depending on the air quality in your area. We believe that there is nowhere that will challenge the quality here in Dunoon and Argyll. Please note that families will enter as a family and that there is an expectation that they will ride as a family and as such will be allocated one timing chip. The family cycle starts at Midday and registration is open from 0800.
For those who are wanting to tackle something a wee bit longer, then why not have a go at the Tour of Ardintinny, it really is a cracking ride it has a testing climb and decent and more than a handful of magnificent views as you ride the coastal roads of Loch Long and the Holy Loch.
The Full sportive 124Km and its little brother the Lite Sportive 84KM will treat riders to some of the most stuning views, quietest roads a stunning tour of the Cowal peninsula and quite frankly this ride is one of Scotland best kept secrets. For those doing the full distance sportive expect to be fed like royalty at The Tearoom in Tighnabruaich.
