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.


If you’re brave enough to take a dip in the chilly water of Scotland, there are a number of events happening throughout the year, below you’ll find details of just a couple of them.

New Year's Day Loony Dook

Brave the chill to raise money for us while shaking off your Hogmanay hangover.

1st January 2020
South Queensferry

John West Great North Swim

With a 250m, half mile, 1 mile, 2 mile, 5k and 10k distance, there’s something for all swimming abilities to choose from.

7th – 9th June 2019
