7 places left
This is the final ride in a series of 3 events taking us from Glasgow to Edinburgh. It is intended to be fun whilst improving fitness for all for those all important big rides at the end of the season.
On this final 22 mile section, we diverge away from the NCN 75 which we took for the previous 2 rides and head up to Kirkliston. This then lets us drop into Edinburgh and onto the main cycle route to Haymarket from Queensferry.
If you are coming from Glasgow, it's suggested that you take the train and get a return ticket to Edinburgh
The route can be viewed on Strava, where you will be able to download the GPX files for your cycle computers
