Tour of the Highlands 2017

In a short number of years the 3 Pistes Cycle Sportive has turned into an iconic, classic event.

Over 1000 riders tackle the 103mile course that takes in 3 Scottish ski centres (Glenshee, Lecht, Cairngorm), taking them over 5 of the 6 highest roads in the UK, including 4 long climbs with 20% gradients.

In autumn 2015 we added a 2nd sportive up the private road to Lowther Hills ski club, Scotland and 2nd highest strip of tarmac in the UK.

Then for the 3rd edition of 3 Pistes we gave 200 riders the opportunity to ride the remaining 2 ski centres of Nevis Range and Glencoe with a fantastic 3 day, 300miles Tour of the Highlands.
