"One of the best all-round rides in the UK... a masterpiece of route planning."Vimeo
The most beautiful closed road sportive in the UK just became even more beautiful.
Fantastic new route for the full 120km route, taking in the Devil’s Beeftub, Moffat Dale, Grey Mare’s Tail and some of the best road cycling in the south of Scotland. The 88km Challenge route remains unchanged – with the classic Talla and Megget road as the centrepiece.Event Info
“It was hands down the best day I’ve ever had out on the bike, I’m looking forwards to 22!”— Touro 2021 Participant
“Having done just about every sportive in Scotland over the years, there’s nothing close to topping this one. I honestly can’t think of any way it could be better. Absolutely 10/10 from me.”— Touro 2021 Participant
“For me this route will stand out as being one of the best all-round rides I have done in the UK. The climbing was not unduly challenging, the scenery stunning and the descents memorable. It’s a masterpiece of route planning.”— Cycling Active Magazine
