The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling has just started rolling out its huge programme of events about all kinds of cycling. It runs for 10 days till 19 June 2016.
This is Scotland’s greatest celebration of cycling culture now in its fourth year and has something for you whether you dress in Lycra or tweeds.
Edinburgh All-Ability Cycling will take place this afternoon from 13:00 to 16:00 at Bangholm Outdoor Education Centre. This is training for the unsure and will be repeated on Sunday 12 June, Tuesday 14 June and Friday 17 June.
Cycling and the Law will be discussed this afternoon at a free event at Word Power Books and the evening event is called The Way of St James, with my father, his love and a dodgy bike. Scot Whitlock cycled the Way of St James or Camino de Santiago on a folding bike. This event will take place at the Edinburgh Centre for Carbon Innovation.
Many more events to come over this weekend and next week. Have a look at the programme here.
