Edinburgh Night Ride

21 Jun 2014 - 22 Jun 2014

 

50 miles – one night – see the city in a new light!

 

Further to the huge success of the first Edinburgh Night Ride in 2013, we are very pleased to announce this unique charity challenge event will be back, bigger and better for 2014!

 

The sun sets, the city sleeps and hundreds of cyclists will take to the streets to conquer the 50 mile route for charity.

Taking in the iconic sights of this beautiful city – the Royal Mile, the Castle, the Scott Monument – our route includes Arthur’s Seat with stunning night views of the city from the Royal Observatory and past the Scottish Parliament, Holyrood Palace and many more attractions.

 

This is a rare chance to explore the nooks and crannies of the Scottish capital at a time when much of the traffic has abated – enjoy the merriment of city night life and the tranquillity of the Georgian streets as we pass through in the moonlight.

Jump on your bike and let’s get cycling!

 

Only 500 places are available in 2014 – places are allocated on a first come, first served basis so register today.

24HOURHAGGIS

 

So its January, its cold, its grey, its raining most of the time, and these are the reasons why I want to do a 24 hour run outside!

 

So on Saturday the 25th of January I will be celebrating Burns Night by running about (mainly) in  the dark cold to raise awarenss for the Tartan Army Children’s Charity.    I will set off at 9am from Balmullo,  a small village in Fife, around  7 miles from  St Andrews and head east for the Fife Coastal Path.

 

But I won’t be alone, initially I was going to do this run solo, but after discussing the safety aspects of being out in the dark with no sleep for so long I am very happy to have Chris Turner (@Kwistaffa) join me for this mini adventure from the start. Chris who is no stranger to road cycling, will take on a new adventure of his own, jumping on a mountain bike and (slowly) riding a large section of the trail with me from 9am until about 3 or 4pm. We will follow the coastal trail all the way down to Leven where another great man Alistair Hunter (@allyhunter) will join the support crew. From here the boys will take it in turns cycling with me into the darkness and the small hours of the morning  while the other is enjoying the comfort of a support car.

The plan is to get down to North Queensferry, cross the forth road bridge back towards Edinburgh, get on the canal towpath, run around a lot and await daylight returning before we triumphantly collapse at 9am Sunday morning.

 

I have no idea what mileage I will cover, the terrain and spending 16-17 hours in the dark will obviously reduce the miles I could run indoors on a treadmill. But it’s not about how many miles will be covered its purely for “fun”.  However this will be the longest I have ran both in terms of mileage and time, previously I have ran 40 and 47 miles so this will be quite a jump in distance.

I have also been running in constant pain for the last 2-3 months and have just been told that my hips are not properly aligned. My silly little left hip is rotated 2-3 millimeters backwards and this is causing problems with the sciatic nerve in my ride side affecting my lower back, hip, upper and lower leg, so again mileage is not the main concern, finishing is.

 

Should probably have some haggis and a nip en route, it will be Burns Night after all......

 

Some hae meat and canna eat,

And some wad eat that want it;

But we hae meat, and we can eat,

And sae let the Lord be thankitt

TACC Statement - 'The Kiltwalk' Print E-mail

We would like to issue a statement to our supporters regarding our participation and partnership with The Kiltwalk charity. This is just to clarify to you, our supporters, what has happened and what exactly our involvement will be in the 2014 Kiltwalks. 

 

As a charity strictly run by volunteers we reviewed the requirements that we would to have meet for us to remain a Tier 1 charity partner of the Kiltwalk (Tier 1 is involved in all the Kiltwalks), after a lot of thought we decided that it would be impossible for us to meet these requirements while maintaining our voluntary status and therefore decided to only apply for a Tier 2 partnership (Tier 2 is only involved in selected Kiltwalks).


This means we will only be involved directly with selected Kiltwalks in 2014. We did apply to be a Tier 2 partner for both the Glasgow Kiltwalk (which is the “traditional” TACC walk) and the Speyside Kiltwalk but we were not successful in this and will instead be a Tier 2 partner for the Aberdeen Kiltwalk next year.

 

We’re happy to still be involved in the Kiltwalk and will still be maintaining links with the charity as a partner for Aberdeen next year, however the traditional TACC involvement in all the Kiltwalks is now at an end.
