Ride the Trossachs Ton 2010

Club member Malcolm Wake is helping out with the Trossachs Ton Sportive again this year and has sent in these details:

Sunday 20th June 2010 will see the second Trossachs Ton (100mile) cycle takes place in Scotland starting and finishing in the shadow of Stirling castle. The Trossachs Ton is a 100 mile circular charity ride aimed at cyclists of all abilities and will raise funds for Action Medical Research. This year we have introduced a new shorter 100km circuit.

This challenging event has been organised by an enthusiastic team of cyclists and will take in some stunning scenery that only Scotland can offer; there will be lochs, glens, monuments and castles. Oh, and there will be the odd hill or two, but what goes up, does of course go down too! We’ll provide you with everything you need to complete the ride apart from a bike and the legs! This fully supported ride includes feed stations, lunch, sweep vehicle, bike mechanics and helpful crew.

The registration fee for the ride is £25.00 which covers the cost of the event and a further £25 is requested in support of the charity.

More details are available on the event website at where online entry is now open.

Action Medical Research is dedicated to touching people’s lives through funding the very best medical scientists and researchers to help babies and children suffering from disease and disability. Through our Touching Tiny Lives appeal we are researching the causes of premature birth and pregnancy complications. Very often, however a particular disease or disability needs that bit more help – a push for more awareness, more support, and more action.
