But what about Scotland’s cycling epics?

Written by Fiona February 23 2010

Hmmmmmmmm. Just read Susan Greenwood’s article in the Guardian about the best cycling challenges for 2010. While it’s obvious she had to do a bit of a worldwide round-up and so couldn’t cover all epic events the biggest oversight appears to be the 24-hour Stathpuffer, held at Strathpeffer, Inverness-shire. Voted by a top bike mag as one of the toughest MBT events in the world this surely should have got a mention? And then there’s the road cycle sportive, the Bealach Mor, that heads up, up, up and over the UK’s biggest road climb. Hmm, I feel a lot better now I’ve blogged about that!
