Frequently Asked Questions

1) When will I receive my starter pack?

Starter packs are mailed out around 2 weeks before the event. If you register only a week or so before the event you may have to pick up your starter pack from a collection point in either Glasgow or Edinburgh on the day of the event.

The starter pack will include your: T-shirt (optional); entry number; route details; transport tickets (optional); all other information that you require to participate.

Individual prices for the Family Rides are £8 for an adult and £5 for a child, but if you register a family of up to 5 (2 adults, up to 3 children) the system automatically gives families the special Family Ticket price of £19 when you proceed to payment.

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.


6) Can I add transport to my order if I didn't book it when I registered?

Riders on the Challenge and Sportive Rides can now add Transport and T-shirts to their order if they did not book them when the originally signed up. Just click here and enter your login and password. If you can't remember then don't worry, click the link to be sent a reminder.

7) Can I add further people in to an existing team?

Yes, just make sure that the team name is spelled exactly the same.

8) How do I know if I and the rest of my team are registered?

A successful entrant will receive confirmation emails from WorldPay detailing all participant details and a receipt of the amount paid.

If not received there is a high probability that you have not been registered.

If you have any further queries regarding your registration please don't hesitate to call 0141 348 7998 for further information.
