A hazard to one cyclist is normal riding to another. To get to some of the beautiful places we take you, you can expect some lanes to have grass and/moss growing in the middle of the road, and for there to be some potholes and loose gravel. Some ascents will be very steep and some descents also, possibly with sharp blind bends.

The Danny Mason Highland Challenge remains an un-signposted, un-marshalled ride without warning signs before potential hazards: you are responsible for your own safety. Nonetheless, we will inspect the route when preparing the final route card and add information about what we consider to be exceptional hazards on this website and on the route card, which will be emailed to you in the week before the event.
