Cyclestreets.net is a brilliant little website for bicyclists. Just enter where you are and where you want to go and it will take you a proper cyclists route, tell you the distance, how quiet or otherwiseit will be and how many calories you will burn completing it.
This is extraordinary. You can actually choose a route to avoid unnecessary hills. Excellent for the part-time cyclist!

Bicycle Shops or Bicycle Accessories Outlets or Cycle Repairers

B G Cycles & Blades LTD

48 Portobello High St, Edinburgh EH15 1DA, UK – 0131 657 5832

Always helpful and looks after his customers well. Took the time today to show me how to adjust and tighten my gear cables to get them shifting better.

On the way to work my chain snapped, I knew of the shop having bought small items like lights and shoe covers before. I walked my bike in and in 5 mins I could cycle away. An excellent experience.

Single Speed Edinburgh

49 Restalrig Rd, Edinburgh EH6 8BD, UK – 07552 239384

Absolutely love my Raleigh Racer! The vintage frame (Reynolds 501) is in brilliant condition and gives it such character! They really knew how to make bike frames back then - the frame is sturdy and the custom build by Single Speed makes it a dream to ride! The bike I got is black with red decals, but the other bikes come in really bright colours - fantastic and varied choice of detailing and features, would highly recommend!

Sports Direct

Good amount of clothes in here. Can be a little messy looking sometimes buy I guess that goes for any sports direct. Nice big shoe collection also and happy staff.
