Sciennes Big Cycle

We are celebrating Bike Week with a cycle to school day on Wednesday 20th June. We would like to exceed last year’s total of 300. In addition we are organising a cycling bus which will start from King’s Buildings, moving down Mayfield Road, (using the new bike corridor), probably turning left into Sciennes House Place and then onto Sciennes Road. The estimated time of departure is 8.25. We hope as many families as possible will be ready to feed in from the side streets as we pass. Lothian and Borders Police have been made aware of our plans and the only stipulation is that we must stop at all red lights. They are very kindly sending along two of their cycling policemen to accompany us.

  1. Be prepared for the ride to get stretched out if the police aren't controlling the junctions for you. As we found on the Pedal on Parliament feeder rides, you will have to choose between regrouping after every light (will there be space?) or proceeding as smaller "light sized" rides.

    Beyond that, have fun!
