Spokes Bike Breakfast 2019
A well-attended annual event organised by SPOKES and paid for by the Council to thank local cyclists. Free breakfasts are served to around 350 people who cycle in on their way to work. There will be a dozen stalls on cycle–related topics, including a Spokes stall selling the popular Edinburgh and Lothians maps at discounted prices, a full bike check and chain lube service. Police will be there for security marking, and SPOKES launches its annual Summer Competition. The event draws to an end with a few encouraging words from Councillors around 8.30 and there is usually a prize draw for a £50 Edinburgh Bicycle Co-Op voucher. Catch up with your cycling friends and inform yourself about what is going on in the cycling world over a coffee and bacon bun – vegetarian and healthy options also available, but come early to get the full range.
