The 2012 Scottish Bike Show
19 March, 2012
CyclingBuddy.com is proud to be supporting The 2012 Scottish Bike Show. Last year the Scottish Bike Show had Over 5,100 visitors attend from all across Scotland and the North of England.
The show promises something for everyone, from the hardcore enthusiast to the commuter cyclist. The show has more bikes, brands, clothing, displays, competitions, presentations, test tracks and loads more packed into Scotland’s one and only bike consumer show.
This year the Show also plays host to two Sportive ride events:
There is a 100 mile Sportive ride and a 65 mile Challenge ride. Both routes will be fully signed and marshalled.
Starting at Balloch Castle on the shores of Loch Lomond both rides immediately head out onto country roads. Riders will head north east then north north east with some testing climbs towards Aberfoyle; and continuing up to Loch Katrine. At this point the shorter Challenge route splits off west and tours around Loch Katrine before heading back via Stronachlacher; passing Loch Chon and Loch Ard. It then turns back towards Balloch Castle and the finish.
At Loch Katrine the Sportive route splits eastwards heading towards Kilmahog. The riders then head north passing Loch Lubnaig, Lochearnhead and Loch Earn, before heading west passing Loch Lubhair and Loch Dochart to Crianlarich. After Crianlarich the route heads south passing Loch Lomond, Loch Long and Glenmallan, Auchenvennel and Dumfin before the final run back to Balloch Castle.
And even more!
Also new for 2012, we have an extra day, 3 days of bike galore from 13th - 15th April, with an extra 1,200 m2 of hall space. There will be more bike brands, bigger displays and more fun for all visitors!
