Seeing sunrise on your bike? Priceless!. Even better if you’re riding with your pals on an awesome course comprising all of the famous Scottish 7 Stanes MTB centres in one hit, plus some of the best road riding Scotland has to offer, all the time chasing a spicy 24-hour completion limit.
Interested? Read on….
Here’s the big idea: as a Relay Team, you and your mates (or just you – taking this on as a Solo is an option) ride the Red (or equivalent) trails at each of the 7 Stanes centres, plus the amazing road sections that join them up.
We’re starting at Glentrool on Saturday 24th July (10am – tbc) and then linking Kirroughtree, Dalbeattie, Mabie, Ae, Newcastleton and finally Glentress. You can change riders and bikes wherever you want, assuming it’s safe, and you’ll be self-supporting your own team.
That’s a total of around 150km of off-road + MTB action, and approx. 290km of road-riding.
You’ve got 24 hours to take on and complete this monster and the clock will not stop through the night – make sure you bring your lights!
If the Covids are still around by the time of the event: trust us, we’ll keep you safe, put the right measures in place, and generally do the right thing. We’re not in the business of risking harming you, our Race Crew or our hosts. Until further notice (i.e. an update on our website) we have some special refund & transfer T&C polices in place – CLICK HERE
Entry can be made in a range of team sizes.
Solo (With support Driver)
There is also an E-Bike option for each category. If one or more of your team want to take part using E-bikes (road or MTB), no problem! – we just want to see lots of people getting involved and having fun. However, any teams using one or more E-bikes will be listed separately in the event results. Please let us know when you enter the event if you will be using any E-bikes.
You will effectively be self-supported on the course. Whichever category you enter you will need one support vehicle (no more than that please) to carry your team-mates who are not riding at that point, your bikes and your food & drink. Your vehicle will also need to bring the team to the finish line (if you have not already reached it) once the 24-hour limit has been reached.
A Greener 24seven!
T-shirts: some of you love them and some of you don’t. If you’re the latter, we’ll now give you the option to donate the cost of your event tee to our designated charity, the John Muir Trust. You can make this selection when you sign up via Entry Central by choosing No T-Shirt. Your entry cost will remain the same and we’ll donate the equivalent value to John Muir Trust.
