Trossachs Ton testimonials

This was my first cycling event EVER and i took on the challenging 106 mile course, i was nervous at first when i showed up on the day but the people who organised this event were friendly and very helpful. Out on the course the food stops were well stocked with everything you would need from tunnocks tea cakes and flapjacks to big vats of high5 and boxes of bananas, everything you could ever need to refuel before setting off again. The course is well signed (if a bit small) and what a course, challenging climbs, fast descents and long flats to recharge your legs, then there's the scenery......just stunning. I would recommend The Trossachs Ton to both novices and to old hands looking for a challenge, a great day out which passed so fast it didn't feel like 7hrs .

Fantastic event - people were excellent - helpful, motivational and friendly. The food stop stations during and at the end were excellent - couldn't fault it. Routes clearly sign posted all the way. Great achievement setting up an event like this - well done - Thanks

Fantastic event with flawless organisation. Stepped up to the Champion Route for 2015 after riding the Classic last year. A huge thanks to the weather planner for the tail wind in the last 10 miles, it was very much appreciated.

First time I have done this event the easier Cool Run. Super circuit albeit bit of a challenge at the start. Lovely run from Carron Bridge to Fintry really nice people at the food stop with plenty of encouragement. Gentle climb out of Fintry to Kippen with a stunning views and a smashing 3 miles of downhill made all the effort worthwhile and a gentle flat finish. Great route for us novices and would definitely recommend. Organisation and communication from start to finish impeccable. Really enjoyed the cracking spread of food at the end (homemade sponge cake stunning) One of the most enjoyable events I have done. A real credit to you all 10/10 and thanks for a great day. Would definitely recommend this event to anyone especially anyone thinking of doing their first sportive, lovely atmosphere and route, I will certainly be back next year! Well done and good luck

Another excellent event from AMR. Superb organisation and great signage along the route. Just wish those riders who bail out from doing the longer distance let the organisers know.

My 2nd sportive with action medical and what a day. Starting out at 730 with a bit of nerves and anticipation of what lay ahead. I have to say from the starting line and heading out this soon disappeared. Lots of friendly chat along the way and brilliant feed stops. Amazing climbs and decents wow!! And ouch!! Especially dukes pass although chuffed with myself for not getting off the bike apart from feed stops. A special thanks to a guy who inspired me with his story about his prostate cancer ordeal. ( good luck for the op next week) and lastly to the guy who caught my wheel in the last 5 mile or so and we helped each other back due to the finish line because of the head wind. Well i hadnt much left in the tank.

Well done
