The Meadows, Edinburgh – meet at the junction of North Meadow Walk and Middle Meadow Walk.

We will then follow NCN 1 east, via the Innocent tunnel, towards Magdalene Park, taking in the chicanes at Meadow Lane, East Parkside, Forkenford, Hay Avenue and Duddingston Park South.

Barriers to Cycling

Many cycling routes such as the NCN1 in Edinburgh feature physical barriers like fences, poorly placed bollards and difficult chicanes. These exclude or make passing difficult for people who need these routes most like those on tandems, cargo bikes, trikes, tagalongs and bikes with trailers. Cycle routes should be for all!


We will have fun illustrating the issue by trying to fit our various bikes through the chicane barriers on NCN 1 between The Meadows and Magdalene Glen. Regardless of whether you’re on a standard bike or something a bit different (tandems, cargo bikes, trailers, etc.). Please do come along!

**NB Chicane posed by model. Actual chicanes may be different from the one shown on the packaging. Contents may settle in transit. Serving suggestion only. **
