The Oban Sportive includes 87 mile and 54 mile road courses and a new mixed road and Gravel course.

The 56 mile course is quoted as one of the hardest Sportive courses around with repetitive short  steep climbs and is on mostly quiet single track roads in the heart of Argyll.

The 87 mile long course is around Scotland's longest Loch, Loch Awe and passes under the shadow of Ben Cruchan, the "Hollow Mountain". Both are A Wild Argyll Challenge!

New for 2019 we have the Oban Cycles Gravel Stage,   a combined road ad gravel stage based around our 54 mile course. We have added two gravel " Special Stages" running along the side of Loch Avich and over towards the Kilcreanan road following The Gravel Forest roads. These were brought to you with the help of Mark from www.obancyclescotland.com. The local go to man for Gravel bikes and routes galore!

On Saturday 11th join us for the Ben Cruachan Inn Hill Climb a blistering climb to Cruachan Dam on a closed road.

Oban Distillery are hosting this years event and the Sportive will start and finish in the historic distillery

Markus Stitz - Global Cyclist and Adventurer as figurehead for Oban Sportive 2019. He'll be taking part in the Ben Cruachan Inn Hill Climb and the Sportive and will be sharing his exploits in a talk in Oban Distillery bar on the Saturday evening.
