What to Expect in a Velo29 Sportive

Find Out What to Expect

This is the inaugural Return To Life sportive departing the stunning town of Dunoon.

Velo 29 have ventured north of the border to bring you this epic and beautiful sportive.

This route was used by many former top amateur and professional cyclists such as Chris Boardman, Brian Smith and Jamie Mcgahan.

The terrain is very challenging with nearly 7000ft of climbing.

The route takes in, Tarzan Dam (Striven), Ballochandrain to Otter Ferry, the secret Argyll Coast, Hells Glenn and the Ardeintiny Peninsula.

Do you have what it takes to complete possibly Scotland’s most formidable sportive?

Return to life is a charity that supports patients, families diagnosed with chronic kidney disease pre and post- Save transplant.

Life on dialysis is cruel so together we can help promote organ donor awareness and save lives.

All Velo29 events have impeccable signage, electronic chip timing, medical and mechanical support. The feed stations have proper food, hot drinks and HIGH5 energy products. At the end, you will get a finishers medal and a great welcome back.

Velo29 also have an APP you can download to use if you have a mechanical or medical issue, or you decide to go home.

Registration couldn’t be easier, the night before you are emailed a see you tomorrow email containing a QR code, have this ready and scan it at registration, that’s it, the Velo29 staff will allocate your event number then all you have to do is attach your number to your bike and chip to your helmet… away you go.
