Quite a few people have cycle related jobs in Edinburgh. Most work in bike shops. More bikes on the roads should mean more jobs for mechanics.

The Bike Station is a bike recycling project which encourages cycling in various ways including delivering Cycle Training. It employs half a dozen people full time plus various on a session basis.

Hire a Pedicab, hard work but can be lucrative. Read about it in .citycycling.

At least one person takes cycle tours.

Several courier companies employ cyclists.

Try citycouriers (started as a cycle only business) or 0845 123 1230 or stop a courier and ask!

The Council has a few people dealing mostly with cycling issues. Would be good if it had a few more…
