Pedal for Scotland


I shot a few pictures last week for the launch of the freshnlo Pedal for Scotland bike ride on the 9th of September.
Edinburgh Rugby and Scotland internationalists Ross Ford and David Denton officially welcomed freshnlo Pedal for Scotland to Murrayfield (which will host the finish line) by getting on some comedy bikes.

After a few practice rides we were ready for the real thing, but I wouldn’t fancy riding the full 47 miles on one of these bikes!

freshnlo Pedal for Scotland is taking place on Sunday 9th September, setting off from Glasgow Green and finishing in style at Murrayfield Stadium. From newcomers who just want to get fit and enjoy a fresh challenge to serious road cyclists, participants have the choice of two different routes: The classic freshnlo Pedal for Scotland Challenge Ride is a 47 mile ride between Glasgow and Edinburgh.
The other route has been made considerably harder for 2012. The 110 mile timed ride now features 2400m of ascent, taking a longer route between Glasgow and Edinburgh for a more serious challenge.
Supported by charity partner Maggie’s Cancer Caring Centres for the fourth year, participants can also raise money for a good cause.
