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 Edinburgh Festival of Cycling started in 2013, The second annual Edinburgh Festival of Cycling was run between the 12th and 22nd June 2014. It offered over 80 individual events at 46 different venues, with people from around the world participating in it.
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 runs for over a week (this year it was be 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.
