GlenDURO is an 160km mixed on and off road loop hopping between the glens surrounding Loch Ness.
The route is made up of sections of the South Loch Ness Trail and lesser known drover roads kindly brought into the 21st century by local estates and windfarm giants. Expect some varied surfaces from smooth asphalt (~60km in total), some techy singletrack and some fast and furious gravel descents…and ascents... We will reach a height of 560m so be prepared for any type of weather. Pack sensibly. This is Scotland after all.
Due to COVID-19 this ride has been rescheduled for July as per below.
#GlenDURO21 will run on Saturday 31 July 2021:
Potential café stops at Foyers, Fort Augustus and Beauly to keep you fuelled as required.
The ride will be run in XDURO format - 5 timed segments comprised of gravel and road. Lots of time for socialising in the non-timed bits.
Rider with the lowest aggregate time over the segments 'wins'*.
*There are no entry fees, no prizes, and there is no support. You are entirely responsible for your own actions, only turn up to ride if you are comfortable with this (see Rules for more details).
