The purpose of the Edinburgh Festival of Cycling (EdFoC) is to celebrate all aspects of cycling in and around the City of Edinburgh, including travel, leisure, adventure, transport, sport, personal development. Recognising cycling’s importance for encouraging social inclusion and economic development reducing ill health and pollution and for making places. EdFoC aims to challenge people’s perception of what cycling is and to put Edinburgh on the map as an international cycling destination.

Unlike some other cycling festivals, The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling doesn’t just revolve around the sports side of cycling (although we aim to cater for sports cycling in all its forms as well). There are so many sides to cycling – from transport to sport, from leisure activity to cultural icon – all of which the festival sets out to celebrate, with a wide range of sporting, cultural and fun events for all age groups, across the city.

The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling was originally envisaged as a proper Edinburgh-style festival. A city-wide event, originally held over nine days, showcasing and celebrating all aspects of bicycle culture and the city itself. The Festival was expanded from nine days to ten in 2014, and then 11 days inclusive from 2015 onwards.

The Edinburgh Festival of Cycling Ltd is a not-for-profit social enterprise, run by a small group of people. The current board of directors are Kim Harding (Founder and CEO), Caroline Brown, and Ulli Harding.
