Edinburgh Night Ride is a fantastic one day charity bike ride event. Pedalling 50 miles around Edinburgh you’ll 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 you 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 this spectacular city!
What are you waiting for? Sign up today and leave your tyre tracks on the streets of Edinburgh.

Registration for this event will take place early evening on Saturday at the start venue – which is also the finish line to the challenge.
After the final briefing we set off on our cycling adventure. We’ll cycle the first part of the journey in daylight as we climb Arthur’s Seat, the highest elevation of the route, to see fantastic views of the city in the evening dusk. After we descend our route sees us cycling along the coast where we’ll witness stunning views as we cycle into the sunset and continue our ride around the beautiful streets of Edinburgh.
After covering 50 miles we finish our challenge in the early hours of Sunday morning, pedalling triumphantly across the finish line to claim our finisher’s medals – not forgetting a well-deserved drink and cake!
