Ride It - Scotland, Langholm Sportive

Date & Location

Langholm, Dumfriesshire

Organiser’s Description

The route is stunning from the start, with vast rolling panoramas of the border hills. This charming ride does, however, have its challenging sections. On the short route you must dig deep as you cross Kirtle Water and start a steep ascent; then, from the top of the climb, tuck down for the 5 mile 'Catch Me If You Can' descent back to Langholm. The medium and long routes have a real sting in the tail: a 21% climb reveals itself with 7 miles to go, followed by a 3.5 mile slog to the Roxburgh/Dumfriesshire Border, then the final push towards the ever beckoning Langholm Monument up on Whita Hill, and finally, the exhilarating descent to basecamp. This ride is part of the Muckle Toon Adventure Festival Weekend.
