Scotland’s biggest mass participation bike ride is back, and will take place on Sunday the 6th of September at 7.30am.
The 47 mile classic freshnlo Pedal for Scotland ride, the challenge ride, is now in its 17th year! Pedal for Scotland attracted more than 7,500 cyclists last year, cycling the 47 miles from Glasgow Green to Edinburgh’s Murrayfield Stadium.
The reason for the ride’s huge popularity is the combination of a great route that uses a mixture of closed roads, quiet back roads and cycle paths and the fact that it takes in Scotland’s two largest cities via stunning countryside. It’s the perfect challenge for both regular cyclists and those who haven’t cycled in a while – a few weeks training is enough to get in shape.
There are rest stops around every ten miles serving free refreshments, plus a free lunch at the beautiful Linlithgow Palace, topped off with entertainment and activities in Edinburgh, making for the perfect active day out for groups of friends, family or work mates. Transport can also be booked to get you and your bike to the start at Glasgow Green, or home from the finish line at Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh.
Rider pack containing vest number, bike number and info guide. Finisher’s medal and goody bag. Free refreshments provided at Drumpellier, Linlithgow (sandwiches and pasta, tea, coffee) and Kirkliston.
Anyone can take part – there are no age limits. This may sound like a long way, but there are a number of rest stops along the route including a free lunch in the beautiful surrounds of Linlithgow Palace. And you don’t even need to go fast! For more information visit the Pedal for Scotland website.
Pedal for Scotland is a fun way to get fit and healthy, and raise money for a worthwhile cause at the same time.
And it’s brilliant fun!
