Pedal for Scotland

Pedal for Scotland discount for GCU

GCU's Cycling Forum and GCU Belles on Bikes are delighted to be working with Cycling Scotland to offer GCU students, PhD candidates and staff a discount for this year's Pedal for Scotland (PfS).

PfS, now in its 20th event, is Scotland's biggest bike event and takes riders on either 45 mile (the Classic Challenge) or 93 mile (the Big Belter) ride on closed roads from Glasgow to Edinburgh on 9th September 2018.

Cycling Scotland are offering the following discounts (equivalent to 33% off) to a limited number of riders for the 2018 Pedal for Scotland (PfS):

  Normal GCU Discount
Classic Challenge (45 miles) £29 £19.43
Big Belter (93 miles) £49 £32.83

Transport (bus for rider and truck for bike)

£20 £13.40

Details of how to claim your discount and register for PfS are provided below.

Please note that the GCU discount code is only valid whilst the GCU allocation is un-used. If the GCU allocation runs out, your code will not be valid.

Get Your Pedal for Scotland GCU discount code

PfS GCU codes are available (subject to availability) to current GCU students, PhD candidates and staff only. Request your PfS GCU code by confirming your eligibility using this Google Form

Please note that as we have a limited number of PfS GCU codes and their validity can only be confirmed on registration at the PfS site. In other words (and for avoidance of doubt) if our PfS GCU code allocation runs out any code we issue you will not be valid.

Registering for Pedal for Scotland with your PfS GCU code

Once you have your GCU code, register by:

  • Visiting the Pedal for Scotland webpage
  • Choosing either the Classic Challenge (45 miles) or the Big Belter (93 miles) rides - do not choose any other ride, as the GCU code is only valid for these rides.
  • Fill in the appropriate details
  • Choose whether you want transport back (please note you’ll not be able to add this later)
  • Enter your discount code* and finally your payment details.

* Please note that the GCU discount code is only valid whilst the GCU allocation is un-used. If the GCU allocation runs out, your code will not be valid.
