Argyll’s islands, the Inner Hebrides and Bute, offer fantastic bikepacking filled with beautiful beaches, some of the world’s best distilleries, great gravel tracks and local food experiences. The new Bikepacking Argyll’s Islands route, created by Bikepacking Scotland and commissioned by CalMac Ferries and Wild About Argyll, maps a 496km-journey (308 miles) connecting the Isles of Mull, Jura, Islay and Bute on a mixture of gravel tracks, singletrail, cycle paths and roads. The route also makes great use of ScotRail’s Highland Explorer, which provides space for up to 20 bikes, including tandems. The newly introduced train carriage offers a bike-friendly train connection between Glasgow, host city of the UCI Cycling World Championships in 2023, and Oban, where the new route begins. Bikes travel free on trains and all ferries along the route.   For new bikepackers and gravel cyclists Bikepacking Argyll’s Islands offers a

The long course is 117 km and 1600 meters climbing and the short course is 65 km with 600 altitude meters. Both courses have at least 90% gravel and forest roads. The routes are new for 2022 and both the long and short course consist of a loop, to minimize the risk of getting lost. For the 117 km route, the first half is quite fast and flat and the second half hilly and with poorer ground. It will be possible to put your own bottles / energy in a car that will be at the depot halfway for the long course. We recommend bikes with at least 35 mm tires, eg mtb, bike cross, gravel or hybrid. There will be a service vehicle following/meeting the riders along the route.   Includes energy bar & gel before start and buns and drinks
