4) Is there transport available?
Transport is available and participants will be able to book
transport at the same time as their registration. Participants
wanting to add transport after their registration can do so by
logging in to their profile.
Please be advised that on the day of the event there will be
thousands of cyclists coming into Edinburgh and ScotRail is unable
to carry large numbers of cycles on its services.
Transport will leave Edinburgh between 05:30 and 06:15 for
Sportive Riders and 06:20 and 09:00 for Challenge Riders. Return
transport will be available from 12noon till 18:00hrs.
Transport for the Edinburgh Family Ride Family ride will be open
from 07:30hrs at Murrayfield. Access to the transport zone can be
made either adjacent to the main entrance (off Roseburn St), or
next to the Ice Rink (off Riversdale Crescent). Riders will not be
able to access the zone from the Riversdale Road entrance to the
Northwest car park at Murrayfield.
5) How does the transport work?
Each participant loads their bike onto a truck (each will be
numbered) then heads to get the first available bus. Both
bike and participant will be transported through, either to
Edinburgh or Glasgow, depending on whether travelling to the start
or from the finish, at which point the participant will be able to
collect their bike from the relevant bike pen (the same number as
that of the truck).
For security purposes each participant is given a vest number
and a bike frame number. Upon arrival at the destination security
staff will ask each participant to show their vest number and they
will then be matched up with their bike.
