Bike Curious Family Workshop
Is your family bike curious? Would you like to get cycling with your children but don’t know where to start? Or do you want to move from baby seat to trailer or tagalong? Or try out a cargo bike? Our workshop will help you get pedalling with children on board!
We’ll have experienced ‘cycling families’ on hand to give you some advice and show you what you’ll need to get your child(ren) attached to your bike safely. You’ll be able to try out a range of equipment, from both front and back mounted baby seats to trailers and tag-alongs and even a cargo bike or two.
There will also be caffeine and cake, plus some activities to keep little ones occupied!

The project will get more pre-school children and their families active, enjoying the fun and freedom of cycling together. Families across Edinburgh will be helped to get pedal ready through a unique programme supporting pre-school children and their families, as they’re encouraged to get active together on the cycle paths of the city. Funded by Transport Scotland, Play Together on Pedals is a collaborative programme designed by the partners – Cycling Scotland, Cycling UK and Play Scotland – to engage children and their families in cycling activities. Building on Glasgow’s successful Play Together on Pedals pre-school programme which has helped teach more than 8,000 children to ride a bike so far, the programme in Edinburgh will work with families across the capital to help them start pedalling together. Alongside the playful programme offered to children in nurseries to get them on two wheels, the project will encourage parents and families to give cycling a go through try out sessions and drop in activities. The project will offer small grants to enable community organisations to be involved, opportunities for local cycling groups to train volunteers and use the expertise and experience of families already pedalling with little ones to help families new to cycling.
