2018 SSDT Monday Route
Once the lone piper has led first rider, Stuart Mack away from the West End parc ferme at 7:30am on Monday morning there's no gentle introduction to the 2018 SSDT. Stuart and the 281 riders that will follow him face just a short three mile run before reaching the very first group of sections at Coire na Cloice high on the hillside above Fort William. From there it's a gentle ride along the forest tracks of Leanachen Forest to the first popular spectator group of the week at Leanachan.
The route then makes its way over to Kinlochleven, taking in sections at Bradilieg, Carn Dearg and Loch Eile Mohr en route before the traditional day one lunch stop. From Kinlochleven there is the run out to Blackwater before returning to close the opening day at the infamous Lagnaha sections, having covered just over seventy miles. There is ample parking at Lagnaha in the community centre car park, a short walk away from the sections. The community centre will be open selling hot and cold food, drinks and the home baking is to die for!
