As part of the partnership work of Breathing Space and RNIB Scotland we are looking for participants who would like to join us in the cycle, wear a T-shirt and be part of the team!
We are aiming to raise awareness of the emotional support available to people who are blind or partially sighted through Breathing Space and RNIB Vision Support Services.
More about the route
The reason for the ride's huge popularity is the combination of a great route that uses a mixture of closed roads, quiet back roads and cycle paths and the fact that it takes in Scotland's two largest cities via stunning countryside. It's the perfect challenge for both regular cyclists and those who haven't cycled in a while - a few weeks training is enough to get in shape.
There are rest stops around every ten miles serving free refreshments, plus lunch at the beautiful Linlithgow Palace, topped off with entertainment and activities at Murrayfield Stadium in Edinburgh. This makes for the perfect active day out for groups of friends, family or work mates. Transport can also be booked to get you and your bike to the start; or home from the finish.
The cycle takes place on Sunday 8th September. Registration costs £26 per adult and includes lunch, administration and a donation to the main charity. Transport for you and your bike from the event back to Glasgow can be arranged for £16.
RNIB Scotland will be fundraising for their Vision Support Service based at Crosshouse and Ayr Hospitals – if you would like to fundraise for this cause, email: firstname.lastname@example.org for a form.
Please select a 10-10:30am start time so that we can get our team photo taken and start off together.
