Trossachs charity cycle ride offers exciting new route: the Double Duke!

29 April 2014

Cycling challenge the Trossachs Ton will set off from Stirling High School on Sunday 15 June 2014 and children’s charity Action Medical Research is calling for riders to sign up now for this all-Scottish sportive.

There is a choice of Cool (34 miles), Classic (75 miles) and Champion (106 miles) routes. New for the Trossachs Ton 2014, and not for the faint-hearted, is the Double Duke that includes two ascents of the Dukes Pass on the Champion route.

With revised routes this charity event offers riders old and new a fresh cycling challenge and is perfect for those looking for an extra special sportive. This is one of the best ride outs in Scotland in an area of outstanding beauty with mountains and forests, making it a real pleasure, despite the hills.

This event is part of the charity’s popular RIDE100 series of one-day bike rides that take place in fantastic cycling locations across the UK. All include chip timing, food and water stations, lunch, marshals and mechanics. 

Cyclists participating in the Trossachs Ton will be raising money to help fund medical research into conditions affecting babies and children. Action Medical Research has been funding medical breakthroughs since it began in 1952. The charity is currently supporting work around Down syndrome, epilepsy, sickle cell disease, and diabetes, as well as some rare and distressing conditions that severely affect children.

Places are limited so make sure you register soon. For more information about the Trossachs Ton ride and to register, visit the website: http://www.action.org.uk /100trossachs
