Edinburgh Night Ride

Edinburgh Night Ride is a fantastic one day charity bike ride event. Pedalling 50 miles around Edinburgh your supporters will see the sunset over the coast, cycle through beautiful Georgian streets under the moon and stars, and discover stunning night views of the city as they pass iconic sights along the way, including Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh Castle, The Forth Bridges, Scottish Parliament Buildings and Holyrood Palace (to name a few)
– all whilst the city sleeps… it really is a unique way to explore Scotland's capital!
