2 day self-supported bikepacking gravel ride based on the Badger Divide route which masterfully links several existing routes with one another to create a direct line, >90% off-road and rideable on adventure/gravel bikes, down the heart of Scotland from Inverness to Glasgow, cutting glen after remote glen. 5 timed segments over the 2 days.
#scotduro19 runs on the first weekend in September:
Start: Sat 7 September 2019, 9am Inverness Castle
End: Sun 8 September 2019, 8pm Drygate Bar & Kitchen in Glasgow
The route is 330km long with 5,500m of ascent, mostly off-road (>90% of the distance), to be ridden in two days.
You will most likely ride some of this route in the dark so front and rear lights are obligatory
This route is rough so at least 40mm tyres are recommended but of course you can do whatever you want.
There are 5 timed segments over the 2 days designed to test riders’ strength, bike handling, and determination on a variety of surfaces over mixed terrain
