Gleneagles Townhouse

Perthshire Peloton Led by a Legend

13 - 15 September 2024

Come and explore the rolling roads of Perthshire on a cycling and culinary break hosted by multiple World and Olympic champion track cyclist, Sir Chris Hoy.

From those who perhaps train all year round to those who enjoy a social ride on an e-bike, this two-night cycling journey promises a fully rounded experience of exhilarating rides immersed in the tranquil countryside that take in breathtaking views of great glens, lochs and Munros, coupled with world-class hospitality, dining and deep relaxation.


Friday 13 September

Arrival with a warm welcome from Sir Chris Hoy himself, before a leisurely 45km ride out and 1,850ft of elevation around the local Perthshire roads.

Start the fuelling process with a glorious Gleneagles barbecue in the Shooting & Fishing School lodge followed by a fireside chat with Sir Chris to talk all things cycling.

Saturday 14 September

Start the day with a much-needed hearty Scottish breakfast in the show stopping Strathearn restaurant to fuel up for the centre piece ride with Sir Chris; a 115km journey taking in The Dukes Pass with a total elevation of 4,080ft.

Capturing the breath-taking views along the way, you’ll be met with a thoughtfully prepared lunch, full to the brim of highlights from Scotland’s larder, before riding back to home ground.

Come Saturday afternoon, following a day in the saddle, the priority is relaxation and restoration. With access to Gleneagles’ extensive range of wellness facilities, choose one of our 50 minutes treatments in our Spa and enjoy a tranquil sanctuary away from the great outdoors. Weary bodies will feel relaxed and rejuvenated.

The evening will welcome a well-deserved private dinner in The Birnam’s beautiful Winter Garden, with a menu specially selected by Sir Chris, for a wind down with the peloton and celebration of the day’s achievements.

Sunday 15 September

The final day will be more relaxed with a gentle ride out of 55km taking in Drummond Castle and 1,790ft of elevation to stretch out any tired legs, before a final hurrah over a slap-up Sunday Lunch in The Strathearn – set to be a culinary send-off to mark the end of a memorable journey for all.
