The big day is on Sunday 8th September 2019
Have a look at the variety of bike rides available depending on your age and ability:
Wee Jaunt Edinburgh
The Wee Jaunt Edinburgh is a family friendly and traffic free 10 mile bike ride. Starting in the beautiful town of Linlithgow, taking in the final 10 miles of the Classic Challenge route to the finish and event village where riders will find in a range of activities for all ages.
The Classic Challenge is a 45 mile bike ride from Glasgow to Edinburgh. This is the event’s most popular ride and attracted over 6,000 participants in 2018. Why not challenge yourself, and take part with friends and family to raise money for great causes, the Classic Challenge really is a fantastic day out on your bike.
The Big Belter is a Sportive ride of 100 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh. The ride uses the same start, first 25 miles 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. You'll encounter some steep climbs and some challenging descents - the Big Belter is for those who want a serious challenge and want to put in the time to prepare for it.
