"Doc Roddy" invites you to the inaugural 8 Crossings of the Ochills which will take place on the 24th. April 2010 at 08:00. Please note that this is an informal invite to get out on your bikes and ride with like minded cyclists. It IS NOT an organised event and therefore:-

1) "Participants" do it at their own risk.

2) They should also ensure they are fit enough for the task!

3) There is absolutely NO SUPPORT- feed stops/ nurses to mop fevered brows etc.

4) It's not a race.


A lengthy (circa 89 miles) and rather tough jaunt through the northern hills of Kinross-shire where the climbs show scant mercy and give a total height gain in excess of 7,500 ft. If your legs fail there are plenty of escape routes to take you back to the start point in Kinross!
