Thanks to everyone who turned out on a beautiful summer day in June for the 2014 ED’s Cycle Fair. The team put on a really fantastic performance for everyone to celebrate cycling in the year of our very own Glasgow 2014 Commonwealth Games.
We were really privileged to have the support of three times Commonwealth medallist and Glasgow 2014 Team Sprint Cyclists Jenny Davies, who said of the event “…event’s like this have an impact on people…it’s about sustainability and having fun…it’s the best kids event I’ve been to“. You can hear more from Jenny and if you were there, maybe even spot yourself in this short video from our very own professional ‘media production crew’ Andy and Jonny, from Ashworth Media…
Thanks also to our sponsors, without which the event would not take place, East Dunbartonshire Council, Good Moves Bishopbriggs, Buff, MuleBar and many many more, we really appreciate your support.
The UK’s most extreme cycle stunt team The Clan headlining the show and culture and cuisine from around the commonwealth, the 2014 ED’s Cycle Fair was certainly one to remember. Feel free to browse the images on our our Flickr site

Inspirational 10 yr old!
On Sunday 8th Sept, Patrick Kiehlmann (10) completed the Pedal for Scotland Sportive, a 110 mile bike ride between Glasgow and Edinburgh, in under 10 hours. The ride started at Glasgow Green and went through the Southern Uplands, finishing over 100 miles later at Murrayfield Stadium, Edinburgh.
Patrick has completed the Pedal for Scotland Challenge ride (50 miles) for the past five years, since he was five, and this year asked his dad if he could step up to the Sportive, inspired by Olympian’s like Sir Chris Hoy, Sir Bradley Wiggins and this years Tour de France winner Chris Froome.

Thanks to everyone who helped make the 2013 ED’s Cycle Fair, the world’s first cycle festval, a fabulous success, but don’t take our word for it, here’s a comment from Deborah O’Toole of Bearsden, in an email to East Dunbartonshire Council Leader Rhondda Geekie:
I wanted to take a few minutes to praise the Cycle festival on Sunday the 16th June at Bishopbriggs. I cycled from Bearsden with my 4 children (aged 4 to 15) and had a fabulous day out. It is fantastic to see the council support this type of event and actively encourage families to get out and enjoy our fabulous countryside whilst developing an active lifestyle. I also felt it helped bring communities together, I met friends from Bearsden & Milngavie and made some new ones in Bishopbriggs. The atmosphere was great and it was just lovely to see kids of all ages (adults too) on bikes of all shapes and sizes just having fun. I would really love to see more of this type of event and getting our young people more active and out on their bikes.
