The Marie Curie Cancer Care Etape Caledonia is a mass participating cycling event that has attracted more than 35,000 people since it began in 2007. With 5,000 places on offer each year, this sell out event attracts riders from all over the country to take on one of the most breathtaking rides through some of the most scenic parts of Highland Perthshire.
This event has two distances for you to choose from:
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).
40 mile route
A 40 mile option of closed road cycling beginning in Pitlochry. The course will take you left away from the 85 mile route at Loch Tummel and then South towards Coshieville, round to Aberfeldy before you finish back in Pitlochry.
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.
