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.

Route information
The Big Belter route* takes in Scotland’s two largest cities via stunning countryside. It’s a substantial challenge with steep hills in the Bathgate Alps, but if you put in the training you’ll be rewarded with great views across the Forth and the opportunity to really challenge yourself.
There are rest stops across the route with refreshments.

Did the race in 2018
The Route: Busy A roads, industrial estates, and roads in such a shocking state that youd think twice about driving a car over them (potholes, farm detritus, and in some sections in the last 10 miles, no perceivable road surface just a patchwork of holes and bumps).Bad route planning too e.g. lots of very tight turns on descents and high speed sections. Shocking state of road on entering Ingleston at end (washboard concrete road with gravel scattered about).Terrible feed stations very poor choice, and very little of it.No access to the event when official transport arrived at Glasgow Green (marshals hadnt opened it yet).A goody-bag that consisted of one leaflet and a bottle of water.A feed station that required all the riders to take their shoes off before entering.This is now a bike ride that, wait for it, tells all the riders to get off their bikes before crossing the finishing line. A treat greeting riders at the end of 100 miles is being shouted at to get off your bike as you approach the finish line.Still waiting for my chip time (3 days and counting).
