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.
