ROUTE INFORMATION

A choice of 2 route options on offer, both take cyclists from Glasgow to Edinburgh –

  • 47 Mile Challenge Ride“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.”
  • 100 Mile Sportive Ride“The freshnlo Pedal for Scotland Sportive is a new ride of 100 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh. The route takes riders through the Southern Uplands and down into Ediburgh 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 steeps climbs around Muirkirk and undulating stretches across wild moorland . The Sportive is a much more challenging ride for regular cyclists. Check out the route map in the side panel opposite. The Sportive will use the same start and finish points as the challenge ride but will take a completely seperate route to give riders a clear run to get the best time they can.”
