Bike Buddy during lockdown

Book a Bike Buddy - this is the experience of just one of our happy customers - THANKS Morag & Sandrine!

"During lockdown I was keen to get out on my bike for some exercise. However the cycle paths near me were very crowded, and too narrow to practise social distancing. I occasionally went out for what felt like aimless cycles on the nearby roads early in the morning when it was quiet.

When I saw Edinburgh Bike Tours advertising bike buddy rides in late June I wondered if they could help me find manageable routes, about an hour long in my area. Previously I was largely a cycle path bicyclist and thought maybe now was the time to gain a bit of confidence on the roads while they are quieter.

Sandrine has been a great help and increased my confidence in cycling. She has helped me with the technicalities of cycling; balance, efficient gear changing, where to sit in the road and importantly in Edinburgh how to manage potholes! We have found new routes and I have enjoyed her company as one of my two households a day! Having talked about it for years I am finally on the hunt for a bike rack for my car so that I can easily access other parts of the city and increase the routes available to me!Book yourself a bike buddy! You won’t regret it!"
