WHAT IS TOUR DE SCOTLAND?
Tour de Scotland is an annual office-based cycling race that raises money for Breast Cancer Care. Now in its fourth year, the event brings together businesses in Scotland to race against each other over 550km, across Scotland on Wattbikes.
It all takes place in the offices of your organisation, over two days. The race is divided into 64 slots of 15 minutes, with each employee cycling as far as they can. Because it's only fifteen minutes of pedalling, it means people of any fitness level can take part, which brings together the whole office. The cycling takes place from 8:00am until 5:00pm each day.
WHEN IS IT?
Tour de Scotland takes place on Wednesday 13th and Thursday 14th March 2019. The race begins at 8:00am each day. On either Monday 11th or Tuesday 12th March the bikes will be in-situ at your offices or wherever you plan to locate the bike to give you a chance to try out the Wattbikes and get familiar with how the race works.

WHO ARE WE DOING IT FOR?
Every year Tour de Scotland raises thousands of pounds for Breast Cancer Care, so that we can be there for anyone facing breast cancer. We are the only nationwide charity that provides this care and support for the men and women who are having to face such a life-changing diagnosis, and we couldn't do it without people like you supporting us through events like Tour de Scotland.
Our clinical expertise and emotional support network help many thousands of people find a way to live with, through and beyond breast cancer.
We were founded in 1973 by Betty Westgate, who knew from her own experience of breast cancer that there was a lack of information and support for women like her. Since then we’ve helped thousands of women and their families every year through our face-to-face, phone and online services.
We offer training for specialist breast cancer nurses and opportunities for them to share best practice. Our information is used in breast care units across the UK.
Good luck in the race and thank you for the effort, determination and huge support that you have shown for Breast Cancer Care. The difference you make by competing and being a part of it, changes lives.
