TryCycling in Edinburgh - Additional Details about our Rides

THE GUIDES:There will be three experienced riders on hand to guide you. We promise to go at a pace that means no-one is left behind. The distance covered can be managed comfortably in the time that we have, with plenty of time for a rest before the ride back. Our aim is to have fun.

YOUNGER CYCLISTS: Riders aged 16 & under must be accompanied by an adult. Please ensure your bicycle is in a roadworthy condition. If a puncture occurs on route, our experienced riders can assist.

WHAT TO BRING: Please dress appropriately for the weather. A little rain will not put us off. Choosing to wear a cycle helmet is at your own discretion. We recommend you bring water, a light snack, & maybe money for a cafe stop For the winter rides, we suggest people wear layers of clothes & gloves. Our rides are not fast & we do stop from time to time, so it's important to keep warm.
