Get ready – we are heading for the 2019 ETAPE Loch Ness!

On Sunday 28 April 2019 our team will be heading out to the iconic Loch Ness for this years’ 66 mile closed-road route around the famous Scottish landmark.

The race starts and finishes in the Highland capital of Inverness, and there is a timed King of the Mountain stage, with a 4.8 mile climb gaining 380m in height with a gradient reaching 12% at times. Should be fun – more information visit their website

We are delighted that a team of cyclists from our parent company, the GFG Alliance, will be using our own bikes to race – so watch out for the Shand bikes along the route!

In addition, we would like to invite anyone needing mechanical assistance or technical help to come and see us. Our two CyTech qualified members of staff will be on hand to assist everyone – just look out for the Shand stand in the Event Village and one of our team will be waiting with a smile!

If there are any urgent parts that are needed they can be purchased on the day at the Cycle Republic stand.

Happy Training!!!!

Wild Horses – Silk Road Mountain Race documentary

Having taken part in the first ever Silk Road Mountain Race last year (and sponsoring the podcast), it was a delight to see the PEdALED documentary now available to view online. Watching it has brought back so many memories and emotions of such a tough race in a wonderful and dramatic place.

You can watch the film below and it does give a real feel for the race, country and people.

Jenny Graham, fastest woman to cycle around the world, returns to Shand HQ

As you may be aware, Jenny Graham completed her record-breaking cycle around the world on 19 October 2018.

On her way home to Inverness, she stopped by Shand HQ to tell us all about it, so we decided to record a video interview of her experiences and hear her thoughts about the Shand Stooshie she used to break the record.

In addition to the video above, in the next month or so we plan to share a longer edit of the interview where Jenny talks more about her epic 124 days riding around the world.
