The race then continues with a 10.5 mile off road section through the mountains from Miavaig to Bowglas and ends with a 0.9 mile road section to the finish at the Scaladale Centre, Ardvourlie, North Harris. Competitors can enter the Hebridean Cycle Challenge as soloists or as teams of two with the changeover point in the team event being at the start of the off-road section at Miavaig. Also on the day there is The Hebridean Charity Cycle a non competitive 21 mile event catering for casual cyclists as well as The Hebridean Charity Walk, a 12k,non-competitive walk following the ancient route through the Harris hills . This year's charity is the Andrew Macleod Memorial Fund which supports local heart screening events.
