trans alba race
This is 2023's edition, running clockwise and with 4 ferry trips! 2024 will be in keeping with the Trans Alba DNA but we always like to add another ferry. The 400 was a shorter option for 2023, found here, from Edinburgh to Oban. Appealing to those starting out in the world of bike packing and those with a leaner holiday allowance to play with! We will bring this back for 2024 too!
The Trans Alba Race is a self supported cycling ride around Scotland. Covering just over 1,000 miles, four ferry trips and 66,000 feet of climbing.
Or... Returning for 2024 - The 400. A wee taster version of the Trans Alba Race that follows the same route from Edinburgh, but ends in Oban. "Only" 411 miles, and 26,000ft of climbing.
Sounds easy right? Well, self supported means self supported, riders are responsible for all their navigation and logistics, whilst remaining completely self reliant throughout the event. Simply - You're on your own!
This is not for the faint hearted!
Riding on 16/06/24 - Apply here!
