Arran Cycle Challenge
Event Date: Sat 25th March 2017
Get on your bike for the Rangers Charity Foundation and join our Arran Cycle Challenge!
Our brand new Arran Cycle Challenge features some of the most stunning scenery in Argyll, taking in all the sights the beautiful island of Arran has to offer.
The route mainly features quiet single track roads, allowing you to make the most of the views as you pedal your way around the island. Although the cycle does involve some challenging hills, even a novice cyclist could take part with just a few weeks of training. It's not a race, so just take your time and enjoy the ride!
There are 2 distances you can choose from to suit various cycling abilities -
55 miles – A full loop of the island which should take roughly 4-6 hours depending on fitness levels.
32 miles – On this route you will cycle round the south part of the island, taking in the beautiful Whiting Bay and Lamlash before heading back to Brodick. This route should take 2-4 hours depending on fitness levels.
Participants will require a roadworthy bike to take part and we would request that you have your bike safety checked beforehand. Wearing a cycle helmet will also be mandatory.
We will provide support vehicles, snack and water stops, lunch and return ferry tickets for you and your bike within the registration fee. Participants also have the option to stay the night before and/or after the cycle. Accommodation options and prices will be sent out following your registration.
The registration fee for this event is £45 and covers all expenses for administering your place. We would ask that all participants raise an additional £100 or more in sponsorship. Funds raised will help the Foundation make a real difference on behalf of the Rangers Family. Whether we're supporting our charity partners or our own community programmes, every penny raised will go a long way.
Remember, every cyclist taking part has the chance to become a True Blue Hero. If you raise over £100 for the Foundation you will be invited along to an exclusive reception at Ibrox where you will be presented with a medal by a first team player!
