Etape Loch Ness welcomes thousands of cyclists to the Scottish Highlands


Etape Loch Ness saw thousands of cyclists from across the UK and beyond enjoy a rare opportunity to ride 66 miles of traffic-free roads around the iconic loch. The closed-road sportive sold out of 4,200 places in just 51 hours.



The fastest male rider was James Davidson (LSDW CC) in a time of 2:53:37. The fastest female cyclist for the second year in a row was Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games Team Scotland member Lee Craigie (Moray Firth CC) in 2:57:51. They were also crowned King and Queen of the Mountain for climbing the Glendoe summit in the quickest time.



Event director Malcolm Sutherland says, “We are absolutely thrilled that the biggest Etape Loch Ness so far was also the best. We have had fantastic feedback, and it’s a joy to see that the months of planning and organisation were all worth it. Since our first sportive in 2014, we have strived to spread the word about cycling in the Highlands and we’re delighted to have been able to bring more riders than ever before to the area.”
