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 Stephen Lawson. If you like us; like us on Facebook and tell a friend. 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.
