Pedal for Scotland returns for its 19th year on Sunday 9 September 2018. Pedal for Scotland’s main event day will feature the 45 mile Classic Challenge from Glasgow to Edinburgh and the colossal 100 mile Big Belter from Glasgow to Edinburgh, which shares the first 25 miles with the Classic Challenge route. There is also a 10 mile Wee Jaunt from Linlithgow to Edinburgh!

Pedal for Scotland, organised by Cycling Scotland, is Scotland’s biggest bike event. Back in 1999, the first event attracted 400 riders. The event has grown increasingly popular with more routes, bigger challenges and more and more participants joining in year on year.

The HSBC UK Let’s Ride street festival for anyone on a bike is coming to the streets of Glasgow on Sunday 26 August.

The roads will be closed to traffic and open to people and there will be music, food and drink, fun and games, demos, giveaways, activities, challenges, face painting – it’s all happening.

It’s free to enter, you get to see your city in a different way and it’s a fun, active, family-friendly day out. You don’t have to go the 5k distance – just as much or as little as you want. And you don’t need to be an experienced cyclist – there are no cars on the road, you can wobble, zig-zag and stop as much as you like.

You just need to be up for some fun. Everyone’s invited – see you there!

20180811_velophonic-orchestra-headerThe spontaneous bicycle where YOU are the orchestra!

On Saturday 11 August 2018 from 10:15 – 11:30am, right in the beating heart of Festival 2018 in George Square, the Velophonic Orchestra will explore the possibilities of using bicycles as instruments: playing on bells, spokes, frames, saddles – you name it. The Velophonic Orchestra is an orchestra that anyone can join!

No previous bicycle-playing experience necessary – just follow the conductors and experience being part of the band as they create a piece of music to celebrate each of the four cycling disciplines of the Glasgow 2018 Championships. There’ll even be a part for non-cyclists!

You can download the flyer here.
