Oban Sportive weekend – May 7th & 8th 2022
One of Scotland’s greatest cycling legends, Graeme Obree, will be joining us this year to help and inspire all our participants both on the Ben Cruachan Inn Hill climb and during the Sportive on the Sunday. Born in 1965, Graeme Obree’s career has been an inspiration for cyclists across the world from cycle tourists to elite cyclists such as Sir Chris Hoy. The two time world hour record holder, who was named BBC Scotland Sports personality of the year in 1993, developed a keen interest in cycling as a youngster and regularly won senior races as a junior.
Graeme Obree will be holding a live talk followed by a Q&A session in The Rockfield Centre on Saturday 7th at 8PM, access to the talk is included for all entrants to the Oban Sportive or Hill Climb.
The Oban Sportive is being supported by The Oban Distillery, where the event will start and finish under it’s iconic Archway.
From its origin in the Oban of 1793, The Oban Distillery has been a key part of the Oban economy and community and we are delighted that this year, the Oban Distillery will be both support and make up a physical part of the event.
In 1989, the Oban 14 Year Old was named one of six Classic Malts representing the Western Highlands region. In 2019, we’d like to nominate the The Oban Distillery Sportive as one of the Classic Sportives! Cyclists of any age and ability are warmly invited to enjoy our Highlands Hospitality.
The Highlands are Waiting!
Launch your 2022 Sportive calendar with an action packed two day Oban Sportive – the “must do” charity event that takes riders on a choice of three Sportive routes and our hill climb: We have 2 all-road sportives: Loch Avich or Loch Awe (the latter with 6237ft of climbing) along quiet back roads on Scotland’s Adventure Coast and on the banks of Loch Awe.
