Ride to the Sun 2016

Moffat chip shop - Ride to the Sun pit stop

Inspired by the Dunwich Dynamo midsummer night ride from London to Dunwich (on the Suffolk coast), Ride to the Sun provides the same unsupported fun with a night raid across border from Carlisle aiming to finish at Crammond beach just outside Edinburgh.

Having taken part last year, the event is a great night ride through the Scottish Borders with a bunch of like-minded people – not to mention a pit stop in Moffat for tea and chips. There’s no mass start and riders generally leave Carlisle between 20:00 and 22:00 to make Sunrise at Crammond around 04:30.

Now in its second year, there are around 750 riders registered and we decided to support the event by offering riders taking part a chance to win a frameset (up to a value of £1,500) based the rider to finish closest to a randomly selected time.

To take part, head over to the Ride to the Sun website to register and for more information about the event and route.
