10 September 2017 – Glasgow to Edinburgh – 110 miles*
The Pedal for Scotland Big Belter® is a Sportive ride of 110 miles from Glasgow to Edinburgh. The ride uses the same start and finish points as the Classic Challenge ride, but takes a completely separate route through the Scottish Borders, meaning you get the buzz of Scotland’s biggest bike event on a quieter route designed for serious road cyclists. The transport service will serve Big Belter® riders too, meaning there is an easy and hassle free way to get you and your bike to the start in Glasgow Green, or back home from Edinburgh at the finish.

Transport can be booked for you and your bike either from Edinburgh to Glasgow Green on the morning of the event to get to the start line, or after the ride from Edinburgh back to Glasgow Green. You will be given a place on a bus while your bike will be transported in a truck. You will be given a ticket to collect your bike at the other end.
The route* takes riders through the Southern Uplands and into Edinburgh incorporating the best sections of numerous Scottish cycle racing circuits, including the A77 10 Mile Time Trial, sections of the Moscow APR and the Strathaven Anderside Classic, taking in steep climbs around Muirkirk and undulating stretches across wild moorland. The Big Belter® is a much more challenging ride for keen road cyclists.
