Challengers collect bike route stamps

Have your say

THE Bike Station and Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust have joined forces again for the Postcode Challenge 2012.

Organisers are calling all families, cyclist enthusiasts and Edinburgh residents to get outdoors this Sunday, July 1, and discover more about the cycle routes on their doorstep.

Although billed as a “challenge”, the event is a relaxed affair, with participants able to set their own pace.

The event gets under way at 11am and those taking part are asked to check in at ten pit-stops along the cycle path routes and collect their stamps to be in with a chance of winning a fantastic prize.

Liz Stewart from Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust said: “Even though it’s a challenge, the Postcode Challenge isn’t about the competition, it’s about discovering your local, natural habitat.”

The Edinburgh & Lothians Greenspace Trust are also running another free family event at Hailes Quarry Park on Saturday, July 7. Kicking off at noon, there’s plenty to get involved in including a climbing wall, bike track, bouncy castle and children’s rides.
