Cycling

If you’re keen to take on a cycling event to raise funds, there are many different options across Scotland. See below for details of some of them.

Nightrider Glasgow

With the choice of 2 circular routes, either 50km or 100km, this fun filled charity cycle ride is about taking on the challenge and seeing the sights. It’s not a race and it’s not timed.

22-23 June 2019

Pedal For Scotland

Join Pedal for Scotland in their 20th Anniversary year and take on one of their main events. The Classic Challenge is a once-a-year opportunity to cycle from Glasgow to Edinburgh on closed roads. The Big Belter is a sportive ride from Glasgow to Edinburgh. The ride uses the same start and finish points as the Classic Challenge ride, meaning you get the buzz of Scotland’s biggest bike event on a quieter route designed for serious roadies.
