What are the age limits?

Classic Challenge:

  • All Classic Challenge participants under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to register on their behalf and sign the terms and conditions.
  • Entrants under the age of sixteen must be accompanied by their parents or legal guardians.
  • Children aged between 10 and 16 can ride independently if accompanied by a responsible adult.
  • Children aged 9 or under can take part in the Classic Challenge on a tag-a-long or in a children’s bike trailer.

Wee Jaunts:

  • Children under 16 can take part in the Wee Jaunt rides independently on their own bike, in a tag along or in a trailer if accompanied by a parent or carer. In all cases it is the responsibility of the child’s parent or guardian to determine the ability of their child to take part in Pedal for Scotland rides.
  • Persons with additional support needs are welcomed with their carers.  

Big Belter: 

  • Entrants must be aged 16 and over to register to take part.
  • All Big Belter participants under the age of 18 will need a parent or guardian to register on their behalf and sign the terms and conditions. The Big Belter route is largely on open roads and we highlight that those under the age of 18 remain the responsibility of their parents or guardians at all times and strongly recommend that you ride together.

Can I buy event transport or a t-shirt if I've already registered?

How do I know if I am registered?
