Cycle 50 miles with a throng of like-minded cyclists, along the twists and turns of the streets of Edinburgh on our Night Ride – lit by the moon and lights of the city.
Taking in the iconic sights of this beautiful city – the Royal Mile, the Castle, the Scott Monument – our route goes past Arthur’s Seat with stunning night views of the city from the Royal Observatory and past the Scottish Parliament and Holyrood Palace.
This is a rare chance to explore the nooks and crannies of the Scottish capital at a time when much of the traffic has abated – enjoy the merriment of night life at Grassmarket and Cowgate and the tranquillity of the Georgian crescents and cobbled streets of New Town as we pass through in the moonlight.
We start our epic bike ride on Saturday evening, next to Holyrood Palace in Holyrood Park and then cycle along Queen’s Drive towards Holyrood Lodge and on to Calton Hill with fantastic cityscape views from the top. Next we head to Musselburgh and down to our first water stop just over 17 miles in, at Newhaven Harbour.
Feeling refreshed, we push on for a ride along the Promenade before heading to the Royal Observatory. This is a steep climb but leads to a great view of the city. We continue on through the tranquil streets until we reach our meal stop approximately 36 miles in at Liberton Primary School.
Our second water stop will be just before the Royal Commonwealth Pool at approximately 46 miles, to give you that extra boost of energy for the last few miles of this fantastic route.
We finish our challenge by cycling along Princes Street with a great view of the Scott Monument before pedaling triumphantly onto the Grassmarket and Cowgate, through the night life of the city and finally onto the Royal Mile and our finish line next to Holyrood Palace!
