Brewin Dolphin Ochil Hills 100Lochgelly, GB

More than 100 miles lay in wait for a true Scottish sportive test on the Brewin Dolphin Ochil Hills Sportive. Exploring the gently undulating terrain of Fife, Perth and Kinross, this ride will take you to iconic areas around Glen Eagles, Knockhill and beyond on a days riding not to be forgotten.

Departing from the Lochore Meadows Country Park, the course begins to head north in to the Cleish Hills with a quick descent and some excellent views, shortly before arriving in Benarty Hill and Loch Leven. Looping around Loch Leven, the route aims for Milnathort, and in our first course split Short riders head east while Standard and Epic go north for Glen Farg.

After reaching the Bridge of Earn, the route turns west towards Dunning, at which point the Standard riders go back in a south-easterly direction and the Epic riders bear true south to Castlehill Reservoir. Its then a case of following the course arrows north, through the Gleneagles district and along the River Devon.

After the climb out of Gleneagles, youll head east through Auchterarder back to Dunning. From Dunning, a long climb out awaits before heading south to Kinross, after which the course cuts through the Cleish Hills for one final time, tackling the climb to Knockhill on the way back to the ride HQ, where a finishers medal and t-shirt wait for you.

As per last years event, you also have the option of signing up to the Velo Club. This option gives you everything the normal entry gives you, and you can still choose to ride any of the three routes available, but gives you a lot of extras.

GritopiaNewby Court School Brae, Scottish Borders, GB

Grit, gravel or whatever you call it want to try a cycling adventure into the lesser-known corners of the Tweed Valley? Everyone knows the Tweed Valley has fabulous roads jammed with stunning views and hardly any cars, and of course, we have a vast collection of world-class mountain bike trails spreading like veins through the hills and woodlands. But what lies between has been something of a secret pleasure countless miles of backcountry forest, dirt or drove roads taking the adventurous bicyclist to undiscovered corners of this beautiful land.

All you need is a spirit of adventure and a bike that can despatch the miles on a variety of surfaces, leaving the traffic far behind and often far below you.

Gritopia is a new event for adventure/gravel/backcountry, or whatever you want to call it, riders. With an event HQ in the TweedLove T On The Green event village, Gritopia will take you on a journey to many new places in the valley hinterland, with mile after mile of empty grit and gravel, and a few stretches of quiet tarmac linking it all up.

The course will be around 60km, all way-marked and youll also get a route map and feed station along the way. There will be some big climbs along the way lifting you to spectacular high roads and ancient trails.

Aimed at any bike rider whos up for an adventure, the event works as a first-time gravel event but will also have plenty of fun for the more experienced gravellist. You can do it on any suitable bike which means a mountain bike will be fine too, but a small-tired pure road bike will likely be a tad uncomfortable (and the gearing might be unhelpful in one or two places!).
