Since coming to Bethany my life has turned from night to day

Bethany Sportive 2012

Saturday 2 June, non-competitive charity cycling challenge

Now in its fourth year, this exciting event for serious amateurs involves a super challenge route of 102 miles.

A shorter route of 72 miles is also on offer for those who would not be able to complete the longer stretch within 8 hours or less.  (Still a huge challenge, nonetheless!)

The Route

Riders leave from Lasswade High School, Bonnyrigg and head south over the Moorfoot Hills to Innerleithen where the long and shorter routes split. The long route now takes a spectacularly scenic route around the borders and both routes meet again just west of Selkirk. For the shorter route, riders return to Lasswade from Innerleithen via the River Tweed and Gala Water valleys. Both routes then return to the High School over the Moorfoot Hills once more. Each participant will be individually timed and the finishing times will be published on the Bethany website after the event. Feed and water stations will also be on hand offering the riders refreshments along the way. (It is advised that if you required something more substantial other than snacks, you bring your lunch)

Entries are limited to 400 with an entry fee of £30 per entrant. Please sign up quickly to ensure your spaces. There are 50 free spaces for riders who can raise over £100 in sponsorship!
