Callander, Scotland Sportive:
Sunday 1st April 2012
Mollands Road Callander
Nestled within the dramatic scenery of Callander, this weekend's rides will give you a taste of some of the Highland's characteristically awe inspiring wilderness.
You would be a fool to miss out on this one!
Big climbs and fun descents are the order of the day. Leaving Callander behind we cycle along the shore of Loch Venachar before taking on the teasing might of Duke's Pass with 500ft of climbing in 2 miles!
The short route splits here and heads through the Queen Elizabeth Forest Park whilst the medium and long routes head off onto the closed roads around Loch Katrina in the heart of The Trossachs. There is no fooling around as we make a second attempt at Duke's Pass and back to base for a well-deserved cupa.
Route options available at this venue:
Fun - 15 miles
Short - 30 miles
Medium - 60 miles
Long - 90 miles
Note: These are approximate distances and may vary slightly depending on the road conditions and weather on the day. If you wish to change your route distance, please tell a member of the RideIt! team on the day.
