Support the bike shop that supports Tour de Forth.
Edinburgh Bicycle will be providing the mechanical support on the day. There will be mechanics at the start at Ingliston, at the water stop at Kincardine and we will setup a support station at Hopetoun and before Park Bistro Canal car park.
For all your pre-ride needs including bike servicing, visit the Bike Co-op shops on Whitehouse Loan, Bruntsfield and Rodney Street, Canonmills, Edinburgh.
Our bike shop partners Edinburgh Bicycle Co-op won't just be offering free mechanical backup on the day. There will be two chances to win a £100 gift voucher leading up to the Tour de Forth. All you have to do is be signed up for the ride by 31st March or 30th April and your name goes into the prize draw. Easy!
In addition to carrying two spare inners and a pump, we recommend you get your bike serviced in advance of the sportive. Minor problems such as gears slipping or that annoying clicking noise from your derailleur can easily turn into a complete failure on a long ride or when you are stressing the chain and cogs on a hill. For peace of mind, pop into Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative anytime and they'll give your bike a free safety check, and advise you what work might be required to make it sportive-ready.
