We need you – do you want to be part of the team?

EdFoC Needs You: The image is based on the famous recruiting poster, a moustachioed man with a peaked hat points out at the viewer. The words "EdFoC Needs YOU" are displayed below his face.

We need you – do you want to be part of the team?

If you are reading this, you may have noticed that the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling Ltd (or EdFoC to its friends) hasn’t run an entire festival since 2019. This has partly been due to things beyond our control, such as the global pandemic, but it has also been due to the team behind the Festival running out of steam.

A bit of background – as can be seen from the About page, the company has a small number of directors (ideally, this should be a minimum of four, but this has slipped) and a few additional volunteers. None of the team are paid to date, and all the modest profits made from running the Festival have been ploughed back into running the Festival. If there were sufficient funds in the future, this could change.

Who do we need?

Currently, the company requires at least two new directors to maintain a quorum, and the Festival as a whole needs people with new ideas who are also willing to commit to turning those ideas into reality. The Festival must also find more funding sources; even before the pandemic, sponsorship was tight.

Once we have got the Festival core team back to full strength, we will also need people who want to get involved but may not be able to commit a significant amount of time. We will have space for you, as there are always things that you could get involved with.


If you are interested in helping the Festival get back on its feet, please send us a message via the contact form, briefly outlining what you can offer, your background, any specific skills, and what you would like to get out of being a part of the team. We will get back to you and arrange a meeting to discuss.
