Results of the 2018 Oban Sportive are available here

Entries to the 2019 Oban Distillery Sportive are now open!

This year, 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 2019 Sportive calendar with an action packed two day Oban Sportive – the “must do” charity event that takes riders on a choice of two routes, 56 miles or 87 miles (the latter with 6237ft of climbing) along quiet back roads on Scotland’s Adventure Coast and on the banks of Loch Awe.
