Cycling Edinburgh

Organised bike rides in and around Edinburgh

Welcome. On this page, you'll find details of all organised bike rides in or near the Scottish capital. These rides are run by local cycling clubs, groups and individuals, and are mostly free and open to all. If you like the idea of cycling in congenial company with a knowledgeable leader, you're sure to find a run here that's right for your experience and level of fitness.

With restrictions on outdoor activities still in force, there is still no prospect of local cycling groups resuming their usual programmes of rides. This looks like being the case for some time to come.

According to the current regulations, informal outdoor exercise, including cycling, is permitted, but only in groups of up to two people (plus children under 12) from no more than two households, and only within or close to your local authority area. Clearly this makes it impossible to organise any sort of group rides.

When the situation eventually improves and local groups feel that they can safely resume their activities, I will publish full details of their rides on this page. In the meantime, you can still access the various cycling-related articles on this site.

Despite the lack of organised rides, I hope you manage to enjoy some cycling in the weeks ahead, safely and in compliance with the rules.
