If you’re a cycling enthusiast we’ve some great news! We have a NEW cycling adventure for 2024 – The Celtic Challenge.

Over the last five years, we have seen our cycling fundraisers brave various amazing challenges as part of our iconic Raid Series – but now we think it’s time to offer everyone something new!

We are introducing The Celtic Challenge – a beautiful 200 mile cycle from Edinburgh to the Isle of Iona.

Throughout this four day adventure, riders will pedal through the historic port city of Glasgow, the stunning ‘Arrochar Alps’, and cycle through several of Scotland’s ‘Top 50 Routes!’; one of which involves passing the Three Lochs Viewpoint.

The Celtic Challenge is a great opportunity if you’re a keen cyclist looking to sign up for your first challenge; and if you’re a real cycling pro, this can be the perfect holiday for you to pedal with your pals whilst raising vital funds for our research to slow, stop or even reverse Parkinson’s.

It will be an amazing ride!
