Etape Caledonia  – Annual event held in May    www.etapecaledonia.co.uk

The Marie Curie Cancer Care Etape Caledonia is an 81 mile cycle challenge taking place on traffic-free roads in the stunning scenery of Highland Perthshire.

This year’s route incorporates two technical sections; the Scott Sprint and the King of the Mountains. The Scott Sprint is a 1km section which is predominately straight and flat allowing that inner sprinter to shine while the King of the Mountains is a 2.1km, Category 4, climb that those specialist climbers among you thrive on. Your timing chip will record your split times across each of these two sections and a prize is up for grabs for the fastest sprinter and the King of the Mountains on race day.
