ENTRIES have opened for Pedal in the Park, the annual 115-kilometre road cycling challenge through the countryside of Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and North Ayrshire.
The Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park event is due to take place on Sunday 2 May. The non-competitive sportive is aimed at road bikes, but hybrids, e-bikes, etc are welcome. It is not a closed road event.
It is held in support of CLIC Sargent in Scotland which helps families of children affected by cancer. The entry fee is £20 and more than a third of this goes to the charity.
The challenging route, with around 1,650 metres of climbing, starts at the park’s Castle Semple Visitor Centre in Lochwinnoch.
The event is hosted in collaboration with Ride63 Community Cycling Club. Entry is through British Cycling — click here.
If Pedal in the Park can’t go ahead as planned on 2 May because of covid regulations, all riders will be moved to the next date on which the event can take place.
