Grinduro 2018 Special Stage 3 - Lunch Roll

Bike Touring Highlight (Segment)

No joke this is a long one, the longest stage of the day at 8km comes after lunch. A rolling fireroad assault with not enough down to recover and enough up to bring on those burning legs.

Don’t quit and go all in!

    The Grinduro Scotland course for 2018 is a serious affair (45 miles of rolling terrain) but isn’t meant to be a sufferfest. We’ve linked together some of our favorite roads and trails on the Isle of Arran. With spectacular scenery and a friendly pace, you’ll be in no big rush to find the finish line. The course features a mix of surfaces (smooth pavement, gravel and hard-packed dirt) with punchy climbs, flat out fire road and flowing natural singletrack descents. Riders will finally descend a cliff top to the shoreline with stunning coastal views.With a Gran Fondo-style mass start from Lamlash, you’ll be pedalling out of town and up the first climb alongside your heroes and the pace will be conversational—because overall time doesn’t matter, only the four timed segments. The Grinduro segments (the exact sections will be shared two weeks prior to the event date) are designed to reward the most well rounded of rouleurs.
