Anyone else do it? First time done it, four us went and thought it was excellent. Expensive yes but great roads and traffic free and very well organised.
Second time here. Good fun if you like a little over 5 hours on a road bike. Planning to do it again next year to see if I can get my lardy ass round under 5 hours. It isn't cheap but there is a lot of organisation in it, not least closing 81 miles of road. Thoroughly recommend it.
Third time for me. I've enjoyed every one. There's a great sense of occasion & I think its fantastic that for one weekend a year Pitlochry becomes my kind of town*

I would like to apologize to anybody that was heckled at the road into Castle Menzies. We should have been selling bacon rolls and coffee but hindsight is a wonderful thing.
First Sportive ride for me - just got a road bike recently - and managed 4hrs 51mins which for an overweight and underfit old git like me seemed ok?
Great event - recommended!
Lots of bike porn of view too!
Great day and great support from the locals. Had a steady ride as we were pacing the wife/gf round and acting as too large wind blockers. They had a great time which was the main aim.
Can highly recommend fortingall hotel too - looked after us very, very well although not a cheap weekend!
I did it and thoroughly enjoyed it, although a start time at least 1 hour later would be nice, as having to get up at 5:15am wasn't nice!
