Stunning Scenery from the heart of the Cairngorm mountain national park

Finish on Scotland’s Alpe D’huez!  The routes take you from the heights of Cairngorm through the north of the Spey Valley and then back up an alpine style climb finishing at the Cairngorm Ski Centre at 632m!  This lesser known area has stunning scenery and quiet roads. Pass some of the world’s most famous whisky distilleries, but don’t stop for a dram! The road undulates through forest and moorland before the final climb to the finish.  Two distances to suit your fitness and ambition.  The event is held largely within the boundaries of the Cairngorms National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty.
