Description

Etape Loch Ness – 29 April 2018

 

The Etape Loch Ness, on 29 April 2018, is a 66-mile (106km) cycle sportive held on fully closed roads around the stunning shores of iconic Loch Ness in the Scottish Highlands.

Loch Ness is one of the world’s best known destinations, its breath-taking scenery and the centuries-old myth and mystery of the Loch Ness monster have attracted visitors from around the world for years.

 

Cyclists now have the opportunity to cycle a 360° route on traffic free roads around the loch, starting and finishing in the historic Highland capital of Inverness. In 2016, 5200 took part in this exciting event and there is increased capacity for 2018. There is a timed King of the Mountain stage on leaving Fort Augustus with a 4.8mile / 9km climb gaining 380m in height and at times with a gradient reaching 12%.

 

The event offers a fantastic challenge with unrivalled scenery on traffic free roads, so whether you’re a seasoned cyclist or a newcomer looking for your first sportive it is a not to be missed opportunity.
