Cycling in the Straths

Cycling in the Straths is back this year for another weekend of cycling, Mackay Country hospitality and local entertainment along one of the most beautiful sections of the North Coast 500.

There are two great routes to choose from:

The longest route, the Strathnaver Challenge, will take cyclists on a 61-mile trip. Leaving Tongue riders will head east to Bettyhill before heading inland through Strathnaver to Altnaharra, along Strathmore before heading back to Tongue.

The Ben Hope Trial is shorter but still a challenging 47-miles with riders starting and finishing in Tongue on a circuit via Altnaharra and Strathmore.

This event was great fun last year with really friendly volunteers and a great atmosphere:
Unrivalled scenery on some of the quietest roads in the country
Finisher's medal and goody bag &
Well stocked feed stations along the route
