About
Freezing temperatures. 17 hours of darkness. Miles upon miles of gruelling terrain. A brutal mix of ice, wind, hail, mud and snow, and maybe, just maybe, a glorious Scottish winter sunrise...When it comes to mountain bike challenges, they don't come much tougher or more rewarding than the Strathpuffer - the legendary 24 hour mountain bike endurance event held every year in the Highlands of Scotland in the middle of winter.

Firstly you’ll need to come to collect your parking pass from Square Wheels in Strathpeffer - stay on the A9 past Inverness over the Kessock Bridge.
At the Tore roundabout take the second exit onto the A9 and follow signs to Dingwall on A834. At second set of traffic lights take a left and follow road for 5 miles until you enter Strathpeffer.
Square Wheels is on the right in the Square opposite the Pavilion.
The event itself is based at Torachilty Forest, on the A835 heading towards Ullapool, half a mile north-west of the village of Contin and about three miles from Strathpeffer.
From Strathpeffer : Take a right out of the Square in Strathpeffer and pass by Jamestown. Continue for two miles and you’ll come to a T-junction. Take a right and follow signs to Ullapool until you pass through Contin. You’ll see signs for the event.
From the North-west: the site is on the left of the A835 just after the Achilty Hotel before Contin
Parking
Probably the biggest headache we have at the Strathpuffer.
It’s worth repeating - We limit access to one vehicle per team whether that is a solo, pair or quad. There is plenty of space at the Achilty Hotel nearby for excess vehicles to be left for the duration of the event and outside Contin Community Centre.
The plan is to send motor-homes, vans etc up the initial fire road climb to park Tour de France style along the course, those with tents only and caravans have a flat parking area 300 metres away from transition and cars are squeezed in anywhere we can.
You must park where the marshals direct you. Please be nice to them - we have a great team and we can guarantee they will be doing the best they can to accommodate you.
You must bring snow chains and know how to use them for your vehicle.

Parking is always a headache but if we all work together we can make parking run as smoothly as possible. We know you all want the best spots but you can’t all fit on them!
We really appreciate your co-operation to make parking happen efficiently.
Please do as the marshals ask; they’re all volunteers and they will be doing their best to accommodate you.

Did the race in 2019
A great event. More mentally challenging than I expected. Tough course, tough conditions but great experience.
