Welcome to the

Brewin Dolphin Ochil Hills Sportive

Sunday 12th May 2019

Venue: Lochore Meadows Country Park, Lochgelly, Fife, Scotland, KY5 8BA

More than 100 miles lay in wait for a true Scottish sportive test on the Brewin Dolphin Ochil Hills Sportive. Exploring the gently undulating terrain of Fife, Perth and Kinross, this ride will take you to iconic areas around the Lomond Hills, Ochil Hills, Gleneagle's and beyond on a day’s riding not to be forgotten.

Departing from the Lochore Meadows Country Park, the course begins to head east passing Loch Leven and skirting around Glenrothes at first before climbing up into the Lomond Hills Regional Park for some draw dropping scenery. A long descent from the tops of the hills ends in the historic village of Falkland after which we head back east closing in on the Shores of Loch Leven once again. The new route aims for Milnathort, and in our first course split Short riders head east while Standard and Epic go north for Glen Farg.

After reaching the Bridge of Earn, the route turns west towards Dunning, at which point the Standard riders go back in a south-easterly direction and the Epic riders bear true south to Castlehill Reservoir. It’s then a case of following the course arrows north, through the Gleneagles district and along the River Devon.

After the climb out of Gleneagles, you’ll head east through Auchterarder back to Dunning. From Dunning, a long climb out awaits before heading south to Kinross, after which the course cuts through the Cleish Hills on the way back to the ride HQ, where a finisher’s medal will be waiting for you.

As per last years event, you also have the option of signing up to the Velo Club. This option gives you everything the normal entry gives you, and you can still choose to ride any of the three routes available, but gives you a lot of extras. Take a look below to see some of the things the Velo Club ticket gives you.

  • Custom Brewin Dolphin Jersey
  • Coffee & Breakfast on arrival
  • Lunch and drink on return
  • Goodie bag
  • Chance to ride with VIP celebrity guest

Times and Awards
Times and Awards

Although all our rides are non competitive events (i.e. not races), most people still like to know how well they've done. With this in mind we will time each participants ride. When you complete your ride your time will be calculated and these timings, along with the timing award you achieved, will be displayed on our results page. Each rider will receive a timing award of either; bronze, silver or gold, depending on their average speed. Of course, some riders aren't bothered about all these awards and just cycle for the experience and stunning scenery.
