The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling has been listed as one of the UK’s best cycling festivals by The Guardian and Total Women’s Cycling. The festival was first run in 2013, in 2014 it offered over 80 individual events at 46 different venues, with people from around the world participating in it. The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling 2015 will run from 11th to 21st June. Here are some hints on some of the things we are currently planning. If you are interested in be a part of it, please get in touch.

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 7% 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 runs for over a week (the first year for nine days, and from the second year onward for 10 days), it is 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 truly has something for everyone! See the 2014 event calendar here (2015 events will be addded to the live calendar as they are confirmed).

Ten thousand copies of the printed programme for the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling 2014 were distributed about the city, and could be found in a number of locations around the city. You can still view the print version of the programme in Issuu.

We have pictures from some of the events that were part of the Festival on our Flickr stream and you can add your own to the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling Flickr group.
