Start/End in Prestonpans, East Lothian

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!

Fundraising is not mandatory but it is very welcome - and if you raise more than £100 in sponsorship money for Poppyscotland, we’ll give you a Sportive cycling jersey for free!

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

The 2019 routes are the same as last year. Visit See www.poppyscotland.org.uk/sportive for more detail on the routes.  

“Really good event. Signage was extremely well done and the volunteers were first class. Thank you!” Poppyscotland Sportive participant, 2018
