Supported Rides

October 31, 2016

 

 

We offer a range of supported and guided rides throughout the UK. This is a bespoke service that can be tailored to meet your requirements.

One of the examples is the Trossachs Supported Ride. We arranged accommodation, support vehicle carrying hydration, nutrition, bike rack, mechanical assistance from a Cytec qualified mechanic and a qualified First Aider.  

 

 

Coaches and athletes gathered for a weekend of long base aerobic training in the beautiful area of Callendar to ride round some spectacular roads and scenery in the Trossachs. 

 

 

 

 

Day 1

 

Gathering at Callander, riders were treated to a customary coffee before loading up the support car with wet bags and spares before heading passed Loch Lubnaig, over the Pass of Leny (3.2k) to Killin and then along the beautiful Loch Tay.  Due to the remarkably mild weather,  riders had a quick stop to hand in some clothing to the car.  Rolling on again, we passed through Aberfeldy and tackled the south climb (7.2km) and regrouped at the top for a quick re-fuel before heading down towards Crieff.   before turning right and heading up the climb along to Comrie and passed Loch Earn before turning left back toward Callander.

 

 Day 2

 

 

After a nice evening meal and a chat, it was off to bed, early to rise!  Meeting up for breakfast we went over the days plan which, although shorter, was a tad more lumpy!! 

 

We left Callander heading past Loch Venachar and over the climb of the Dukes Pass (3.8km) dropping down into Aberfoyle before heading for Arnprior, passing the Lake of Menteith.  The next big climb was the Top Of The World (3.4km) before dropping down to Fintry and almost immediately into the climb of the Crow Road (2.7km).  The fast decent down into Clachan of Campsie tested the nerves of some and certainly cooled us down a bit!  Heading along to Strathblane we cut off and rode through Balfron which has a very sticky climb through the village.  This is known to a few of us as the Sottish Road Race Championships have finished up there 2 years in a row...  Theres a long flat ride along the Kippin Flats which brings us back to the road home.  What else was there to do in this ride but finish off with the Dukes Pass from the other side!
