Kilberry Loop Sportive fires starting pistol for Tarbert festival calendar

Kilberry Loop Sportive organisers have officially fired the starting pistol heralding Tarbert’s exciting festival programme by announcing its return on Saturday 6 August 2022.

This 40-mile ride, which is organised by the Mid Argyll Triathlon and Cycle Club and registered with British Cycling, has seen upwards of 90 cyclists head to the west coast village to take part in this friendly event since it was first held in 2018.

Now in its fifth year, the sportive starts and ends at The Gather, Tarbert, and is open to cyclists of all abilities. In 2021 the event included a new category for e-bikes which recognised their growing popularity for people who want to take up cycling and who wish to be part of this fun event.

The route itself is testing but the rewards are many, with breathtaking scenery at every turn and for those riders cycling in company and making the most of this enjoyable day, photo opportunities are endless with the perfect view around every corner! And for those cyclists who want to challenge themselves, the route is exciting enough to get the adrenaline flowing.

Event organiser John Hardie is looking forward to welcoming cyclists back to Tarbert saying: ‘We are keen that our fellow cyclists experience this stunning route. We were delighted to welcome almost 80 cyclists to Tarbert in 2021 and we hope we can beat this number in 2022. With entries opening early in the year we’re giving people an incentive to stick to their fitness regimes – we’re also looking forward to our more competitive riders achieving their personal best performances on the route.’
