Women V Cancer Ride the Night Edinburgh is back!

Due to the phenomenal success of our inaugural Scottish cycle and demand for a second round, we’re absolutely delighted to bring Women V Cancer Ride the Night Edinburgh back for 2020!

The new city, the magical sites (literally – Edinburgh is after all, the birth place of the Harry Potter books) and our spectacular route, blew the tartan bonnets off our Ride the Nighters’ helmets and so it just makes sense to experience the amazing challenge again in 2020 and give even more inspiring ladies the opportunity to join the ride.

Join hundreds of wonderful ladies in Scotland’s bonny capital city for a fabulous 50km or 100km cycle through Edinburgh at night, in support of three invaluable women’s cancer charities, Breast Cancer Care, Ovarian Cancer Action and Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust.

Kicking off from the gorgeous Queen Margaret University on Saturday 19 September 2020, we’ll get the party started with motivational speeches, music and warm-ups.

Then, just as the sun starts to set, it’s time to hop on your bike and take on either a 50km or 100km route (you decide!) through the enchanting city of Edinburgh. Together with hundreds of other Ride the Night heroes, you’ll paint the town pink with your hi-vis vests, vibrant accessories, fairy lights and that sparkling Women V Cancer spirit, as you pedal yourself to the peak for people affected by women’s cancers.

Along the way, you’ll make a bunch of new friends and pass loads of beautiful, historic landmarks, including the Royal Yacht Brittania, Arthur’s Seat, Edinburgh Castle and many more, until you cross the finish line back at Queen Margaret University.

Over the last six years, thousands of inspiring women have cycled through London (and now Edinburgh!) at night and raised over £6 million for Breast Cancer Care, Jo’s Cervical Cancer Trust and Ovarian Cancer Action. This year, we aim to raise another awesome £500,000 for our charities and make an even bigger impact in the battle against breast, cervical and ovarian cancers. Join our cause on this incredibly special challenge and help to save and support countless lives affected by cancer.

Places are limited on this massively popular challenge and they're likely to go like hot Scottish shortcake, so please register today to secure a place in your preferred start wave.
