The last ever Skye Sportive event will take place tomorrow (Saturday 25 August.)

Organised by Handsonevents, the cycle sportive has been held on Skye for 11 years.

Organiser, Alasdair Lawton, told The Skye Times: "We have always been overwhelmed by the fabulous cycling that is available in this island and by the generous welcome afforded to us by its residents particularly those who have supported our food stations in Uig and Dunvegan.

"However, the world moves on and the explosion in the number of cycle sportives across the UK and in particular the emergence of mass participation closed road events has led to fewer people travelling to smaller events such as the Skye sportive.

"We have tried very hard to keep this event going but it is now time to face facts and stage our final Skye sportive on 25 August 2018."
