Challenge Ride 7th September 2014

47 miles

PEDAL FOR SCOTLAND_Murrayfield _Lenny Warren5

About: The classic freshnlo Pedal for Scotland ride, the challenge ride is now in its 16th year. The 47 mile Glasgow to Edinburgh ride is Scotland's biggest bike ride and attracted over 7500 participants last year.

Route:  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.

Riders receive:   Rider pack containing vest number, bike number and info guide. Finisher's medal and goody bag. Free refreshments provided at Drumpellier (chocolate, bananas, snack bars etc), Linlithgow (sandwiches and pasta, tea, coffee) and Kirkliston (chocolate, muffins, snack bars and coffee courtesy of Scotmid). 

Start time: 7:30am, Glasgow Green

Price: Adults - £26, concessions - £16. Transport is an additional £16.

Sportive Ride 7th September 2014

110 miles

2012pfs 2

About:The freshnlo Pedal for Scotland Sportive is a ride of 110 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh. The ride uses the same start and finish points as the Challenge ride, but takes a completely separate route, meaning you get the buzz of Scotland's biggest cycle ride on a quieter route designed for road cyclists. The transport service will serve Sportive riders too, meaning there is an easy and hassle free way to get you and your bike to the start in Glasgow Green, or back home from Edinburgh at the finish.

Route:  The route takes riders through the Southern Uplands and into Edinburgh passing through 7 local authorities and incorporating the best sections of numerous Scottish cycle racing circuits, including the A77 10 Mile Time Trial, sections of the Moscow APR and the Strathaven Anderside Classic, incorporating steep climbs around Muirkirk and undulating stretches across wild moorland . The Sportive is a much more challenging ride for keen road cyclists.

Riders receive: Timing chip Rider pack containing vest number, bike number and info guide. Finisher's medal and goody bag. Free refreshments provided at Galston (chocolate, bananas, snack bars, gels, hydrate etc), Crawford John (sandwiches and pasta, tea, coffee) and Carnwath (chocolate, bananas, gels, hydrate).
