Join us for this momentous centenary year!

Why Ride the Poppyscotland Sportive?


Beautiful East Lothian appeals to families, cycling groups, friends and individuals alike - with plenty of flat terrain and a few challenging hills, the peaceful rolling countryside and quiet roads allow for glorious vistas of the surrounding scenery.


Riders can take on the Poppyscotland Sportive challenge for many reasons: to achieve their own personal goals, raise money and support the Armed Forces community in need or to be part of the third best Sportive in Scotland (as ranked by Sportive.com in 2017), which is famous for its friendly and welcoming volunteers and participants.

Be part of #TeamPoppy and raise £100 or more - and you will receive fundraising advice from our team as well as a free cycling jersey!

Help ensure that the veterans in Scotland living with mental health, employability, housing or poverty problems receive the support they need.

Based on your feedback, 2018 routes are similar to last year, but with a few tweaks! Visit See www.poppyscotland.org.uk/sportive for more detail on the routes.
