What is Pedal for Scotland?

Pedal for Scotland, organised by Cycling Scotland, is Scotland’s biggest bike event. Back in 1999, the first event attracted 400 riders. The event has grown increasingly popular with more routes, bigger challenges and more and more participants joining in year on year.

Pedal for Scotland returns for our 20th year on 8 September 2019, with rides to choose from that cater for all ages and abilities. Pedal for Scotland’s main event day will feature the 45 mile Classic Challenge from Glasgow to Edinburgh, the colossal 100 mile Big Belter from Glasgow to Edinburgh. 


Support for the STV Children’s Appeal, official charity partner to Pedal for Scotland, grew in 2015, 2016 and 2017 with a variety of riders including a Scottie dog called Hamish, a couple on a tandem dressed as ‘Big Man and Wee Yin’, the staff of Royal Bank of Scotland and many more helping to raise funds for children and young people affected by poverty in Scotland.
