The Route

The Classic Challenge route* takes in Scotland’s two largest cities via stunning countryside. It’s the perfect challenge for both regular riders 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 or so serving refreshments making for the perfect active day out for groups of friends, family or work mates. 

The 2017 Classic Challenge route is below for reference - however, please note that the final route is subject to change.
