Welcome to our Rider Hub. This space is here to support you from the moment you sign up for your Ride right until you reach the finish line!
We hope you’re as excited as we are…
We encourage as many of you as possible to take shared or public transport to and from the event to minimise the environmental impact of the event.
We are partnered with European Bike Express who provide bike, rider and luggage transport service to and from the Ride.
More information regarding the timetables, costs how to book, and how best to pack your bike can be found on the Rider Hub here.
Please note, if you are an England or Scotland rider you will need to organise your own transport to/from Edinburgh.
The level of training required will vary depending on the individual. We provide riders with the choice of training plans (novice, intermediate and advanced) to get any level of rider into shape to enjoy and complete the ride.
It is important to remember that the key factor of training is to get out on the bike as much as you can, as well as learn key skills that you will need for the Ride. Therefore it is also recommended for riders to get some practice in group riding, train on undulating terrain and perhaps have a go at a multi-day sportive.
You will cycle on average 110 miles a day.
Your tent will be pitched ready and waiting for you when you arrive at Basecamp. You are not permitted to provide your own tent and camp on site.
You will need to bring your own sleeping bag and sleeping mat (Plus package participants will have a sleeping mat provided for the final night).
