On Sunday 29th of July The Graeme Obree Ayrshire Sportive will set off from Auchincruive College with the opportunity to experience some of the best, most cycling friendly roads in Scotland.
A choice of two route options –
- 48.5 mile intermediate ride – Starting at Auchincruive the route heads south then south east before routing back to Auchincruive. This course has over 1500 feet of climbing and will provide a stern test of fitness and endurance.
- 65 mile endurance ride – Starting at Auchincruive this route will challenge the strongest riders with 68.5 miles of energy sapping roads heading south and south east, crossing the famous Nick o The Balloch climb before switching back up via Straiton and Dalmellington to return to Auchincruive for the finish. The Flying Scotsman himself, Graeme Obree will lead this ride across many of the roads he trained on as a youngster. This course has 3750 feet of climbing and some technical descents and traverses some magnificent scenery in the moorland high above Ayrshire.
