Starting as we mean to go on, the first Cycle to School of this academic year will be on Friday 30 August. As before, we will be meeting at Kings Buildings at 8:15 for an 8:20 departure. We will aim to stick to the last Friday of each month for the next few months at least.
For any families who are new to the school or are thinking about joining us for the first time, we travel as a group down Mayfield Road and collect pupils and families on the way, before turning onto Sciennes House Place and along Sciennes Road. I have attached a picture below of the route. We aim to keep together as far as possible but have staff and qualified cycle leaders at either end of the peloton in the event that we become separated at the lights. All adults are encouraged to make their way to the left hand side of the group where possible to keep the pupils on the inside.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to get in touch will the school.
We look forward to seeing you there.

Thank you to everybody who turned up for today’s Cycle to School, and to those who supported from the side lines! Thankfully the sun came out for us so we had a lovely wee run in to school. A special shout out to the fabby P7s who showed up for their last ever Cycle to School- especially after the excitement of their amazing show yesterday.
Thank you to the parents and families for the support through the year. We really couldn’t run the cycles without you all.
We’ll resume in August and will confirm the date in the new term. Happy holidays when they come. 😊
The Edinburgh Cycling Festival is on, so what better way to celebrate than to join in on our Cycle to School! Our last cycle of the school year- where has the time gone?
We look forward to seeing you there 😊
Our next Cycle to School will take place on Friday 31 May.
If you are thinking about joining us for the first time, we meet at Kings Buildings from 8:15 ready to depart at 8:20. From there we head down Mayfield Road picking up pupils and families from the adjoining streets and turn off from Causwayside onto Sciennes Road towards school. All are welcome 😊
We’re hoping to squeeze one final cycle in before the end of term, but will likely aim to have it a little earlier to avoid the last day of term. Details to be confirmed.
See you in a few weeks.
A big thank you to everybody who braved the rain to join us on our Cycle to School last Friday in support of PoP. It’s great to see how confident the kiddies are in the peloton and on the roads; such a positive start to the day.
Our next Cycle will take place on Friday 31 May. See you all there 😊
Our next Cycle to School will take place on Friday 26 April and will run in support of Pedal on Parliament as one of the PoP events. Arrangements are as normal: meet at Kings Buildings for an 8:20 departure. We look forward to seeing you all there.
