Pedalling 50 miles around Edinburgh you’ll see the sunset over the coast, cycle through beautiful Georgian streets under the moon and stars, and discover stunning night views of the city as you pass iconic sights along the way, including Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh Castle, The Forth Bridges, Scottish Parliament Buildings and Holyrood Palace (to name a few) – all whilst the city sleeps… it really is a unique way to explore this spectacular city!
What are you waiting for? Sign up today and leave your tyre tracks on the streets of Edinburgh.
We set off in the evening, cycling towards the Forth Bridge in time for the sunset, continuing along the coast to Musselburgh. We'll then ride inland, passing Arthur's Seat, followed by Holyrood Palace, the Parliament buildings and the Royal Mile, before we complete our ride around the beautiful streets of Edinburgh.
After covering 50 miles we finish our challenge in the early hours of Sunday morning, pedalling triumphantly across the finish line to claim our finisher’s medals – not forgetting a well-deserved drink and slice of cake!
Please note that the route is fully signposted and on open roads which are not closed to traffic. The GPX file of the route is usually available a few months before the challenge if you would like this file please contact our offices. Also this is not a timed event.
