Gravel cycle around Whitelee Windfarm.
An opportunity for us to get our bikes and legs in order before a much more difficult gravel cycle in Peebles on 20th May.
Join us on this 45Km gravel cycle around one of the largest windfarms in Europe.
The distance for this event may appear short/medium, but cycling on rough ground can be very demanding. A reasonable level of fitness and confidence on tricky surfaces is essential.
This is a group cycle and nobody gets left behind.
A Strava route for the event is available to logged-in members.
