Hebridean Cycle Challenge - Saturday 14th June 2014

Hebridean Cycle Challenge

The Hebridean Cycle Challenge is a competitive road and mountain bike race with the option of running the off-road section instead of cycling it. The Challenge begins with a 33.6 mile road cycle from the Creed Enterprise Park outside Stornoway to Miavaig in North Harris. The race then continues with a 10.5 mile off road section through the mountains from Miavaig to Bowglas and ends with a 0.9 mile road section to the finish at the Scaladale Centre, Ardvourlie, North Harris. Competitors can enter the Hebridean Cycle Challenge as soloists or as teams of two with the changeover point in the team event being at the start of the off-road section at Miavaig.

The Hebridean Charity Cycle is a non competitive event catering for casual cyclists. It begins at the Creed Business Park outside Stornoway and ends 21.3 miles later at the Scaladale Centre in Ardvourlie, North Harris.

The Hebridean Charity Walk is a 12k non-competitive walk following the ancient route north from Uragha in Harris through the Harris hills to the Scaladale Centre.
