Which Poppy Sportive route should I choose?

The Poppyscotland Sportive takes place in East Lothian and the Scottish Borders and the routes all involve hills! The medium and long route are especially challenging with longer distances that involve long climbs up into the Lammermuirs and over the infamous ‘Rigg’. The elevation gain and loss statistics, also in graph form, for all 3 routes can be found here

We advise all participants familiarise themselves with the route they have chosen and are prepared for the climbs they will encounter.

Please see for more details.
