Get on your bike and join the fight to beat leprosy

Sign up to our Edinburgh to St Andrews Cycle Ride fundraising event and help transform the lives of people affected by leprosy in India, Bangladesh and Mozambique.

You’ll ride a 68 mile track with up to 1,000 other cyclists.

Starting in Edinburgh’s Inverleith Park, you’ll cross the Forth Bridge, pass through the beautiful Fife hills, stop for a bite to eat – perhaps afternoon tea or even an ice cream to give you that well-needed energy boost, before finishing in the coastal town of St Andrews.

How your fundraising will help 

Each day more than 600 people are diagnosed and start treatment for leprosy – over 50 will be children. However, millions more are living undiagnosed with the disease today, leading to increasing damage the longer it’s left.

The funds you raise will provide children, women and men with the treatment they need to improve their lives, access healthcare and reduce poverty and stigma.

Fun for all the family

The Edinburgh to St Andrews Cycle Ride is a great day out for everyone.

What if I get a puncture?

Don’t worry! There will be a repair van to help you with any bike trouble and a luggage van to carry anything for you.

How will I get back?

We will take you back to Edinburgh safe and sound with our optional bus and bike van service for £17.

Don’t just take it from us!

Graeme Obree, 2 x holder of the 1 hour record and world 4,000 Persuit Champion – and otherwise known as The Flying Scotsman, encourages people on their bikes and cycling the 68 miles:

 “The Edinburgh to St Andrews Bike Ride is a fabulous event that has been raising money for Lepra’s work for over 20 years. This year’s ride could mean reaching a grand total of half a million pounds, all of which goes towards improving healthcare and reducing poverty in some of the world’s poorest countries.

We’re calling for the people of Scotland to get on their bikes and join in peddling for poverty.”

The more you raise – the more lives you’ll change

We don’t have a minimum sponsorship amount, we simply ask that you raise as much as you can and have a lot of fun doing so.

Just £22 will train 6 village doctors to recognise the symptoms of leprosy – reducing the amount of disabilities caused through misdiagnosis.
