The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling was run for the first time between 15th and 23rd June 2013…
Edinburgh prides itself on being the City of Festivals. There are festivals for The Arts (and their attendant Fringe), Books, Films, Science, and even Storytelling. Edinburgh also has ambitions to be a Cycling City. It was the first UK city to sign the Charter of Brussels and is currently committing 6% of the city’s transport budget to cycling. We feel this is a good time to start a new Edinburgh Festival of Cycling.
As a proper Edinburgh style festival, the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling will last at least a week (nine days, in fact) and act as a real showcase for all aspects of bicycle culture and the host city. From rides (sporty and otherwise) to family activities to a range of cultural events, The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling will truly have something for everyone: Let the fun begin!
Why not check out our on-line programme of events (or download a pdf of the printed programme) or find out more about the festival by browsing this site. Some events need to be booked in advance, you can find out about them here.
We have now starting the planning of the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling 2014, if you have any suggestions for next year or you would like to be a part of the team, please get in touch.
