Edinburgh is fortunate to have various groups organising rides for all levels of cyclists from complete novices to the most experienced.

There is now a great web site listing them all!

    do you organize trip of 3 To 5 days in scotland (average milage 6O-90 a day average speed 15-20 miles per hour)

  2. 15 miles per hour is kind of very good average I’d say! Are you talkng about lightweight road bikes or hybrids (aka trekking bikes)?
    With own luggage panniers of course?

    Any bike tour is a good one if people are willing participants and they realise how windy and hilly it can be.
    My Scottish Touring usually involves using train to Highland start point. Say Pitlochry. Not cheating… really.

    Cycling from Barra to Lewis on the Outer Hebrides is a good one… train to Oban.
    Orkney Islands are great.. train to Aberdeen.
    Henniker’s book lists them all. New one out too – Bike Scotland Book One: 40 great routes from Central Scotland by Fergal MacErlean

    As you can guess I’d suggest using ‘non-standard bikes’ just for the comfort and fun of it.

    This ride is growing from strength to strength, people are coming from all over the country to take part.
    we are expecting over 2000+ cyclists this year!
    (2007 over 1500 cyclists took part and raised £70.000).

    Is it possible to give our fantastic cycle event a mention? maybe a mention or forward e-mail to friends,or even enter a team?
    Perhaps your business could support us?

    Any publicity would be greatly appreciated.

    Last year we raised £70,000 with 1500 cyclists taking part we aim to double that amount this year if possible. We even took 230 cyclists and their cyclists to the start on the morning leaving Tynemouth 7.15am.Hadrain Spring Water, Northumbrian water donated bottled water, Red Bull, and Delmonte Bannanas gave all cyclists energy.

    The Chris Lucas Trust is fundraising to pay for our Scientific Medical Researcher, based with the NHS,
    at the Royal Marsden Hospital, London, Institute of Cancer Research, Innovative Therapies for Children with Cancer (ITCC) since 2005.
    To research a very aggressive cancer called Rhabdomyosarcoma (Rab – doe – my – o – Sarcoma) to help improve the quality of life of children and young adults suffering from this horrific type of sarcoma.

    He has very good experience of molecular profiling of cancers and I am sure he will really help us push forward our ongoing work on rhabdomyosarcoma

    The research group are also very interested in the underlying molecular abnormalities in RMS that might be important as targets for developing new drugs.

    Our vital work work on the molecular characterision of rhabdomyosarcoma, using ‘microarray’ profiling which tests thousands of genes simultaneously.

    By looking at how these results predict response to treatment, we aim to highlight the important genes for choosing new drugs to test on RMS cell lines and in the clinic and aim to identify new targets for developing new drugs.
