STAGE DESCRIPTION

Glasgow has hosted many of the top cycling events including last year’s European Championships.  George Square in the centre of the city lends itself well and will be the focus of our pre and post start activities on the second day of the Women’s Tour of Scotland.

The race will leave George Square in a neutralised fashion at 11h15 and the peloton will start serious racing as they pass Lamb Hill on the A879 heading towards Aberfoyle and the Trossachs.

First sprint of the day is at 37.8kms outside the Trossachs information centre at Aberfoyle.

Immediately after comes the only Queen of the Mountains climb of the day at Dukes Pass, which will split the field and create fast open racing as the peloton head towards Perth.

Sprint 2 is Strathyre Post Office (71km) and the final sprint of the day is in Crief High Street (110km).

The final 30kms are flat and will make for fast racing before the peloton sweep into Tay Street, Perth to finish opposite the Council Chambers.
