Road Cycling Events in Edinburgh, Scotland
A cracking ride in the Scottish Borders. Welcome to the Tour O The Borders, a top class, closed road event which takes you through stunning scenery on beautiful Borders roads.
Were confident this is the best value-for-money closed road sportive in the country, and its 100% organised by local riders.
Back fo another ride in glorious Scotland. We are based at Lanark Racecourse, which is now disused but was once the site of Britain's oldest horse race.
Lanark is just south of Glasgow and it's not long until you are into the typically beautiful countryside with rolling hills and a scenic vista. Due to the remoteness of some of the roads we are running slightly different route distances to our usual events with Fun, Medium and Long routes only. Our other Scottish events sell out way in advance so make sure you sign up nice and early to get your place.

Different road cycling event types
We sort our cycling events by Short (0-50km), Medium (50-100km), Long (100-200km) and Ultra (200km+). Most of these are Sportives. Here are some cycling event names defined:
- Gran Fondo — a mass participation cycling event at least 120km long. A large event with closed roads, usually chip timed. People travel all over Europe to compete in these events.
- Century — a cycle of 100 miles (160.9 km) or more within 12 hours, usually as a club sponsored event. A large event with closed roads, people can get there PBs here. Usually chip timed.
- Sportives — most of the cycling events on our site are sportives, these are the most popular endurance cycling events. They’re held all over the world and rarely exclude traffic. They’re more relaxed and whilst people do go for PBs it’s a much more convivial atmosphere than the more formal Gran Fondo races.
