Etape Caledonia 2012

Off to a Sportive event? 'Racing' a charity event or just going somewhere nice with your bike?

I didn't get in this year for Etape Caledonia, but I've signed up (under the code Ythan CC) for the Kinross Sportive (Black Route - 87 miles). Apparantly the 700 places sold out in 60 hours of it opening. It is only in its second year. I think I paid £25 for entry. Looking at the entry list there are not many people from NE Scotland doing it, mainly from central belt, fife and perth area. Interestly, there are a lot of triathletes entered, judging by their club affliation.

Didn't they tell you that you have to do the course in a sleeveless vest and speedos to qualify for a time Dave? :lol:

Well, it's been a long time since I did 81 miles but in an effort to get 'back on the bike' I've entered the Etape - although new to the club I know one or two faces but hopefully will meet a feww more over the coming months.

Bistro No1 - Smack bang in the middle of Pitlochry sells great food at a reasonable price, and you can usually get a table pretty easily. It's relatively quiet with no loud music so good for a sociable pre-event event.

If you want to get sloshed you're only a stone throw from the pub and if your performance is affected you can always blame the drink.

Good luck to all of you on the day - hope you have a great day in the sun :D

Fairly brutal weather today and my time was well down on what it was two years ago :cry: . Well done to Lee for a fantastic time. My legs began to give out at 65 miles, just when Bob caught me and then James who stopped for a chat before riding away from me like I was standing still (I probably was).

Just as I was heading back to the Hotel I saw Paul cross the line with the biggest grin.

think I might do some more of this stuff.
