Join us for our 20th anniversary event in 2019.
Pedal for Scotland's Big Belter is a sportive ride from Glasgow to Edinburgh. The ride uses the same start 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.
The Big Belter route* takes in Scotland’s two largest cities via stunning countryside. It’s a substantial challenge with steep hills, but if you put in the training you'll be rewarded with great views across the Forth and the opportunity to really challenge yourself.
There are rest stops across the route with refreshments.
Below is the 2018 route for reference.
