Leave your car at home and come join in the free fun at the Bike Station’s Postcode Challenge on Sunday 12th June.

The Bike Station in conjunction with The People’s Postcode Lottery is running this kids and adult-friendly event, which is a bit like a treasure hunt on wheels.

The challenge is to find 10 cards which can be found at different postcodes along the North Edinburgh traffic-free cycling pathways. The fantastic Innertube map will help guide you round the quiet and scenic routes.

Collect all ten cards, hand them in to us and you will be in with a chance to win a great prize.

Prizes have kindly been donated by: Tisos / Alpine Bikes, Edinburgh Bicycle Co-operative, The Cameo Cinema, The Filmhouse, Royal Yacht Britannia, Gorgie City Farm , The Bridge Inn, Ratho, The National Trust for Scotland, Edinburgh and Lothian Greenspace Trust.

Whether you fancy doing something different this summer or are looking to re-discover your love of cycling, join in with the fun on Sunday 12th June, between 10am and 4pm on the North Edinburgh Cyclepaths. It’s completely free to take part, and will make for a great family day out.
