3 Day weather – Windchill MINUS THREE

Here are the Met Office 3 day weather forecasts for the 3 ski areas. As you can see below, the windchill for Glenshee is minus three on Sunday morning. The snow is now predicted to fall on Saturday above 700m… that’s just above road level !!!

Don’t be a hero. Prepare for cold and wet weather. If you do get caught in the wet, make use of the ski centre facilities to keep warm, dry off and take hot drinks.

Let’s be honest, we never expected a weather forecast like this for the start of June. We still don’t. Yes it will be cold, yes it will be wet… but will it be sleat or snow or rain???

We are putting a snow contingency plan together, with extra warm dry places as muster points. We will post full details on here and at Saturday registration.

Under Police advice, a recent sportive on these roads was rerouted to lower ground. This weekend’s forecast is not as bad as then, and our options for rerouting are limited. Dance to whatever sun god you worship.

At CairnGorm please proceed up the left hand lane of the car park toward the Funicular Station and then bear right to the finish gantry in front of the Day Lodge.

Please take care. The road surface has some huge pot holes and lots of stone chips. We will sweep the road for you but it will still be the worst surface of the day.

At the finish grab a bottle of water and a meal token. This entitles you to a big bowl of pasta bake.

Bag Collection Vans will be beside the finish.

Transfer coaches and vans will be waiting for you in the lower car park. If the upper car park is not too busy they will make there way there for departure.

5 KEY AREAS FOR CAUTION

Sunday is not a race. No-one is likely to get a Strava KOM. So please don’t ride like a d1ck, chill out and enjoy your day.

According to the start list no-one is mountains breakaway specialist Thomas De Gendt. Take the first couple of climbs easy and save yourself for the Lecht, Br of Brown and Cairngorm.

At many a previous sportive I have over cooked it going up the first few climbs to be overtaken on the last few. Not clever.

Please dress according to the changeable weather conditions. Carry tools, spare tubes and a pump and know how to use them. Carry food and water. Check out British Cycling’s excellent Sportive Tips section.

Please take extra care with the following sections of road!

All of A924 & B950 – yes it’s an A road, but it also is one with passing places. This is where you will be all bunched up together. Even though it is 7am Sunday there is bound to be some impatient drivers. Be courteous and cycle to the left – in single file if possible.

All of B976 – in particular the right hand bend half way down descent.

The B976 is a single track road with passing places. After the long descent from Glenshee you will be back bunched together so please be courteous to other road users.

The chicane on the decent is off camber. It has also just had some resurfacing work and is frequently wet. Oh and it’s a 15% section.

Descent of A939 into Strathdon another steep section with a right left chicane half way down

The Lecht Climb Hairpins Yes it’s 20% and 24% in the corner, but remember it’s a public road with other road users. Please stay to the LEFT HAND SIDE of the road. If walking please dismount to the left.

Descent to Well of The Lecht what goes up must come down – NO FASTER THAN NATIONAL SPEED LIMIT!!! Yes it’s 20% but there is a sweeping blind corner. Get on you brakes early and give yourself  plenty of distance to the rider ahead.

Descent to  Bridge of Brown off camber double S bends at 20%… need we say more?

CairnGorm Climb – Tourist traffic, 1000 knackered cyclists, service buses, transfer coaches, vans, cars of friends and families. This will be the busiest part of the ride and you will be eyeballs out. Take care.

Finally, thanks for supporting the 3 Pistes Cycle. Fingers crossed the weather forecast improves.  If you have any non stupid or pointless questions 😉 please feel free to ask.

We wish you all a safe and enjoyable ride. The weather looks very changeable so layer up accordingly!!!

The 3 Pistes Team have spent the past couple of days on the route checking everything out. You will be delighted to know that the tarmac is in excellent condition. Perth and Kinross Council have spent the past week resurfacing the Moulin Moor Rd, Pitlochry to the A93. It is looking fab… yes there is currently a lot of loose chippings, but 10 days of traffic should spread them off the road. BUT BE CAREFUL IF IT HASN’T.

Up at The Lecht, the Glencoe and Nevis Range teams want a bit of the 3 Pistes Cycle Sportive action.

This morning was spent getting to know the new operators at CairnGorm. At the end we’ll have the same big sound system pumping out the Northern Soul classics for you and big bowls of pasta to chomp on. With over 1100 cyclists they’ve even said that they will fill in the pot holes at the entrance to the car park.

2015-05-22 10.58.58

The pot holes at entrance of CairnGorm’s Coire Cas car park. They will be filling them in this week.

The finish line set up will be similar to last year’s. Next weekend’s weather forecast isn’t looking great, so this year you will get your pasta inside the warmth of the base station at ski hire.

The Finish Line

The Finish Line. Your friends and family will be able to sit out on the Storehouse balcony and have lunch whilst watching you gracefully climb up to the finish.

So… the all important weather forecasts.

Pitlochry10weather

Pitlochry – Cloudy but dry in the morning. Rain in the afternoon.

BRAEMAR10WEATHER

Braemar – Cloudy all day. Rain coming from the south expected late afternoon.

aviemore10weather

Aviemore – Cloudy all day. Rain coming from the south expected early evening.

The more experienced of you won’t be caring about the rain. Worse than gradients, the main battle cyclists face is against the wind. The astute amonst you will have noticed that all forecasts predict a 10mph South Westerly, otherwise known as a TAILWIND ALL THE WAY TO NETHY BRIDGE

Full rider notes and better weather forecasts will be published early next week.

Who wants to be on the telly?

Who wants to be on the Telly?

Both BBC Adventure Show & BBC The Mountain will be filming 3 Pistes Cycle Sportive.

They want some interesting characters to chat with on screen.

Are you expecting a fast time?

Are you worried about not finishing?

Is this your first sportive or long ride?

Are you doing this for a cause?

Do you have a back story that would suit X-Factor soppy music?

Late Entry Extended Until Saturday night

Entry for 3 Pistes Cycle Sportive closed last night. We’ve opened it up again for a few late comers, so you have until 23:55 on Saturday evening to get your entry in.

It looks like almost 1100 of you will ride next Sunday. Let’s hope the weather improves.
