Etape Caledonia 2021

May 16

£45
Etape Caledonia

It is hard for riders to not enjoy the views of the Scottish Highland on their 85 or 40-mile routes. Once completed, riders can sit back, relax, and soak up the atmosphere in the Event Village.

Etape Caledonia routes

The two Etape Caledonia routes take in the best of what the Highlands has to offer. Winding roads, tree-lined avenues, Lochs, mountains and everything in between. The 85-mile course is technical and challenging in parts but still allows for moments where you can take a break from the hurt locker and take in the stunning views. The 40 mile brings in some challenges but takes out the steep climb of Schiehallion. You can find more information on both routes on our route maps below.

85 Mile Route

85 miles of closed road cycling beginning and concluding in Pitlochry. The course consists of rolling hills and forest-lined roads around Loch Rannoch and Loch Tummel, combined with the demanding, twisting climb of Mt Schiehallion (1,083m).

The course takes you up to Trinafour with a challenging ascent of 374m and backs down towards Kinloch Rannoch. Once you have cycled around Loch Rannoch you will begin your ascent up Schiehallion (382m). Afterwards, enjoy the descent down towards Aberfeldy and head back towards the finish line in Pitlochry. Make sure to relax and enjoy celebrating your achievement in the event village festival.

40-mile route

A 40-mile option of closed road cycling beginning in Pitlochry. The course will take a left away from the 85-mile route at Tummel Bridge where you will begin their ascent to 392m. Once you have finished the climb you can enjoy a descent taking you South towards Coshieville and round to Aberfeldy. The route then takes you back around to the finish line back in Pitlochry, where you can relax and celebrate your achievements at the event festival.

It will be hard for you to not enjoy the views, whilst taking breaks at the number of food and drink stations placed around the course. Once completed, it’s time to sit back, relax, and soak up the atmosphere in the Event Village. You can stick around afterwards and raise a glass with friends and family to toast your cycling achievement.
