8 September 2019: Pedal For Scotland
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.”
If you agree with Einstein (or even if you don't) you may want to join in biggest pedal power event in Scotland of 2019 - more than 6,000 cyclists took part in 2018. In fact, what are you waiting for? This year will be your last chance to take part in this iconic Glasgow-Edinburgh closed-road cycle, as Pedal For Scotland will evolve into inclusive, free, local events across Scotland from 2020.
Ian Patterson, one of our Funding & Contracts Officers (the cyclist in red, above), has taken part in the event an extraordinary 6 times and is doing it again this year! Here's what he told us,
"It’s not a race, it’s a fun, if sometimes, hard challenge, made more enjoyable because the others doing it are just a wide range of people, who are taking part because it’s a challenge from which they can make money for the charity of their choice. The atmosphere throughout the event is amazing from start to finish, adding to the fun during the ride and the sense of achievement when you finish."
