Finally we managed to get 2020's race on in 2022... Something called Covid got in the way... Not cool! 2022 was intense - Spill Dog tore up the course (Graham doesn't know we call him that but I'm sure it's fine...) Kieran Power pulled and epic stint with some ninja tactics and a seagull stole Jack's fish supper... You missed it? Well check out our Alumni Scrapbook, Gallery and Stories here... Good times...

Thanks! Message sent.



 the team     





We're a small but mighty team and a pretty friendly one too! So feel free to drop us a line if you have any questions. We're always happy to go for a ride or recommend our favourite routes (always with an excellent coffee stop!)






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....introducing 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! 

Dates for 2024 will be confirmed soon.
