Welcome to the No Fuss Ultimate MTB challenge for endurance athletes and people with a sense of adventure. Now a mainstay of the No Fuss calendar the Tour de Ben Nevis in 2018 stays true to its word of bringing mountain biking back to the mountains. A 72km circumnavigation of Ben Nevis from Fort William, the Outdoor Capital of the UK. This is one of the countrys longest point-to-point events; an MTB endurance, enduro and mountain marathon event all rolled into one.

We must stress this is more of an event than a race. Those that are super fit and want to race hard will not be disappointed and the 4 special timed sections will spice it up a bit and really bring out the competitors from within however those who see this as a major personal challenge will be able to pace themselves and enjoy the adventure and wilderness of this remote area.

The course will not be littered with signage and support people, it will be left as untouched as possible to allow you to enjoy this environment in its natural state. With this comes some personal responsibility, which is a big part of the event ethos. We are taking the bubblewrapping away and letting you take on this event knowing that you will need motivation and tenacity to get to the finish line.

2018 will be the eigth year that we have run this event, those who rode in 2016 will remember the weather. In 2016 we were unable to safely manage the river crossing a Luibelt and the race format was changed to an out and back, we are delighted that in 2017 the route was managable in its entirity, although for many the river crossing was memorable.
