Back by popular demand after a magical first year,
Oban Sportive is the must do charity cycling challenge for 2014.
In 2013 195 entrants took part and enjoyed blazing sunshine and
Argyll's best in scenery, riding and hospitality. We received
great feedback for the course management on the day and refreshments
provided by Rotary, Inner Wheel and Atlantis Leisure. The two
testing routes take you through Argyll's breathtaking scenery
for the most part on traffic free back roads. Starting and finishing
at the sea port of Oban (which offers plenty of good accommodation
and interest for the visitor) the rides promise to test man and
machine in the best backdrop in the UK. Expect sea views, lochs
(and locks) large and small, highland glens, tough riding and
a warm welcome.
The two routes are mapped at the link above and
you can enter soon through British Cycling's on-line system using
the link below. The event is a collaborative project between North
Argyll Cycle Club and Oban Rotary Club and all proceeeds will
go to good causes. The event will be fully supported with chip
timing, route cards, feed stations, signage, marshalls and a broom
wagon on each course. Event T shirts will be free to the first
100 entrants. Event photography will be provided by Kevin McGlynn. If you like us; like us and share on Facebook.
If you tweet; follow
us and stay in touch.
Oban Rotary Club is a fund-raising organisation
and passes on funds to many worthwhile causes and charities each
year. Please help us by using the event to raise sponsorship funds
for us. You can print off a sponsorship form here.
Once this is completed, hand it in at registration before you
start the event or return it by post.
Stop Press: Oban Spit Roasts will be roasting
pig for all entrants after the event included in the entry fee.
