Pedal For Scotland



Sunday 8 September 2019

"Nothing Compares to the simple pleasure of riding a bike" John F Kennedy.

“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” Albert Einstein.

If you agree with JFK and Einstein you may want to join in biggest pedal power event of the year. More than 6,000 cyclists are taking part in 2018. By taking part on behalf of Venture Trust you'll also enable us to support young and vulnerable participants to keep moving positively on their life journeys. Our 2018-19 Programmes include Cashback Change Cycle which enables young people build their own bicycle and take it on a wilderness residential.

You can choose between 2 distances. The Classic Challenge 45 mile route and The Big Belter 100 mile sportive route. Both rides start and end together travelling between Glasgow to Edinburgh.

For the less confident cyclist there is a shorter, traffic-free, family friendly Wee Jaunt cycle of 10 miles from Linlithgow to Edinburgh. For more information and sign up details click here

We will cheer you on through your training and celebrate your efforts, all we ask in return is that you raise at least £150 vital sponsorship to support our work. Whichever event you choose, if you cycle for us we'll provide:

  • Fundraising pack including ideas for how you can reach your target
  • A Venture Trust T-shirt (on reaching £100)
  • Sponsorship forms

To receive your fundraising pack please contact- alison@venturetrust.org.uk or 0131 228 7711.
