WHAT OUR RIDERS SAY...
Big thanks to the Marshalls - clear warnings & lots of encouragement :)
Just wanted to say a huge thanks and well done for organising a great event. Really well signposted and efficient marshalling in all the right places.
Good people, good laughs and great routes - all delivered today.
Just wanted to say a quick thanks to all the Marshalls today . They were on the ball keeping us all right in that cold wind . We really enjoyed it and would still be out there if it wasn’t for the excellent sign posting and helpers
Thanks again 😀
If you're a looking for a challenging, excellently organised sportive which takes in two of Central Scotland's most iconic climbs, pasta (That's right pasta!!) you seriosuly need to consider Grand Fondo Scotland.
The route is challenging, roads are quiet and atmosphere is everything you want from a sportive. Finishers are also rewarded with a pasta party after the event, which is above and beyond, this provides a post ride social element you don't often get with sportives.
Get it in your diaries, you'll not be disappointed.
Just a quick note to say that I really enjoyed Gran Fondo Scotland. The start was pretty cool, and felt distinctly Scottish alongside the Kelpies with the bagpipes! Directions were excellent, and even I didn’t feel like I didn’t feel lost at any point. It was a nice course with some challenging climbs, and some beautiful views. Cool for me as I had the chance to catch up with my mates and my little brother (1st ever sportive!) and also got to ride alongside some domestic pro riders too! Looking forward to next year
Grand Fun Out In Scotland
The route itself was magnificent, the food stops awesome and the help on the road very greatly appreciated when Gary and Blair had to peel my bike off me, massage my legs and send me on my way again.
What a wonderful day out, thank you so much to Laura, Gary, Blair, all the marshal’s, helpers and everyone involved”
