Marmotte Gran Fondo Écosse

The UK’s newest fully closed road Gran Fondo and Time Trial

The Verycool Events Company (organisers of the Tour of Cambridgeshire Gran Fondo and Chrono) are very pleased to announce the UK’s newest fully closed road gran fondo and time trial taking place in Kilmarnock over 24 & 25 September 2016 - the Marmotte Gran Fondo Écosse powered by Braveheart.

The UK’s newest fully closed road cycle event will take place around the stunning East Ayrshire countryside and mimics the successful format of the Tour of Cambridgeshire with a 20km (12.4 mile) Time Trial on Saturday and 137km (85 mile) Gran Fondo on the Sunday. There will be a tour of colour run on the Friday.

We are delighted to be working with the Braveheart Cycling Fund to boost their profile and help raise money for young cyclists.

Due to the grandeur of the routes, scenery and parcours, the event has been given the prestigious Marmotte title by the organisers of the legendary La Marmotte ride in the French Alps. While it may not have the severity of the Alpine climbs the long route on the Gran Fondo still packs over 1500m (5000ft) of climbing on rolling roads. 

Tom Caldwell from the organisers The Very Cool Events Company Ltd said, “I am delighted to be able bring this iconic brand and event to such a beautiful part of the United Kingdom. The Tour of Cambridgeshire was such a success that it paved the way for us to have this event incorporated within the prestigious Marmotte Gran Fondo Series. I am also delighted to be working with the Braveheart Cycling Fund, helping to raise their profile and raise funds for such an incredible cause supporting young riders in Scotland. I look forward to seeing a fantastic race together with the legions of leisure and charity riders enjoying the beautiful countryside in and around Kilmarnock. “

Demand for both events is expected to be very high especially for the Time Trial so early entry to reserve your place is recommended.
