ExploreEdinburghbyBIKE.com a site produced to go with leaflets given to primary school children. Full of useful information to encourage children (and their parents) to cycle more.

Edinburgh Racers “Scotland’s original kids’ track racing club, based at Meadowbank Velodrome in Edinburgh. We have drop-in sessions every Saturday morning from April to September (weather permitting). Experienced coaches will teach your kids to track race in a supervised, traffic-free environment.”

Interesting Edinburgh University report by Amber Zirnhelt for City of Edinburgh Council highlighting need for better off-road Mountain Biking facilities for young people.

Edinburgh used to have half a dozen cycle speedway tracks, most have vanished. The one at Redbraes Park has been refurbished and is home to Edinburgh Falcons Cycle Speedway Club. Great 5 page article in .citycycling.

Cycling Development (City of Edinburgh Council) “The overall aim of the Cycling Development Officer’s role is to increase and develop participation in cycling in 8 – 16 year olds. This is achieved through the 4 work areas outlined below that target a range of age groups and levels of abilities.”

Scottish Cycling is the body for cycle sport(s) in Scotland – everything from from fun events in schools to World Class riders – like Chris Hoy.
