New for 2013, The Grand Tour of Highland Scotland . 550 miles over 7days, fully supported with baggage transfer, support vehicles meals and food on route see the Tearfund Cycling website for details (2013 ride now full )
The Tearfund Drumlanrig challenge is organised and supported by members of churches from Dumfries and Nithsdale. Their aim is to provide participants with a memorable and enjoyable cycling challenge in the glorious scenery and traffic free roads around Drumlanrig Castle, and at the same time raise funds for Tearfund, a Christian charity dedicated to bringing relief,hope and a future to some of the worlds poorest communities and to those suffering from natural and man-made disasters.
Participants have the choice of a 100 miles, a 62 miles or a 40 miles cycling challenge. Whatever route you choose you have the added challenge of tackling the copious supplies of sandwiches and home baking provided by the church members at the feed stations. With this event having the unique feature of not timing the lunch break, you can sample as much of the food on offer as you like without it impacting on your time.
