3 Pistes Sportive

Sunday 28th May 2023

The 3 Pistes Sportive was our first foray into the world of sporting event organising. Dreamed up over dinner and a pint or 2 at Alan’s kitchen table in Glasgow, we all thought a century ride taking in as many of Scotlands ski areas as possible was a great idea… In a short number of years the 3 Pistes Cycle Sportive has turned into an iconic, classic event. Riders tackle the 103 mile course that takes in 3 Scottish ski centres (Glenshee, Lecht, Cairngorm), taking them over 5 of the 6 highest roads in the UK, including 4 long climbs with 20% gradients.

Coach transfers are available to book either in the morning from Aviemore to the start at Pitlochry so you can just roll down the hill to your car at the end of the ride or in the afternoon from the finish to Pitlochry.

The UK’s highest cycle sportive. 
8 categorised climbs, 
5 of the UK’s 7 highest roads, 
3 ski centres, 
102 miles,
and lots and lots of stunning views.
