Luke and the rest of the staff were incredibly helpful. We were a large group from the U.S. cycling through Scotland and they were quick to answer our many questions before we hired the bikes. Additionally they gave us rental discounts and extras like bicycle tubes that we would only pay for if we used them; they were also very... More

We hired 3 road bikes and had chosen this company on the basis of it's Tripadvisor reviews. The bikes were excellent, Aluminium frames with carbon forks, we did not bring cleated shoes so simple pedals with cages were fitted for us. We were given locks and a pump. The bikes had small saddle bags with tubes and tyre levers but... More

A boy I work with wanted to learn to ride a bike, so we went to Biketrax in the hope of hiring one for an hour or so to take to the nearby park. The staff were extremely friendly, generous, helpful and flexible - far more so than I ever would have hoped for. They gave us a lot of... More

On needing a replacement to get me out in the fresh air for some exercise I ventured in to look for a new bike. I was ably assisted by the knowledgeable staff and directed to what seemed to meet my requirements, a hybrid. Within my budget along with a bit of discount that went to pay for some additional bits... More

Decided I wanted a folding electric bike that I could easily transport in the boot of my car. I visited Biketax. On my first occasion I was given a full briefing on what was available and the pros and cons of various ebikes. The Brompton with an electric conversion kit seemed to fit my requirements. I subsequently asked for a... More

The staff was very helpful getting me set up on the bike and planning a route. I am from the USA and had never ridden in Scotland (or... More

I rely on Biketrak for all my bike services, punctures, helmets, pumps the lots. They are always helpful, and keen to help and to teach me how to look after my bike properly. Nothing is too much trouble. I recommend them to family and friends and now to you thank you so much

Really helpful and friendly service from BikeTrax in central Edinburgh. Paid my deposit online for 24 hours' hire - which covered Friday afternoon and most of Saturday. They fitted us out with excellent hybrid bikes (way better than my 20 year old bike at home!) and recommended 2 great routes - along the Union Canal & Water of Leith within... More

Money well spend! Perfect way to explore the area outside Edinburgh. For rentals, road bikes (racing bikes!) are brand new and in good condition. For 25GBP you get a bike, lock, helmet and repair kit. service is good, and so is cycling around Edinburgh. As a cyclist, I definitely recommend Biketrax. Compared to other bike hire companies I visited in... More

Staying in West End

Neighbourhood Profile
West End
Prevailing winds meant that most cities that grew in industrial Britain had their most desirable neighbourhoods to the west – upwind of factory fumes. Edinburgh was no exception, with its wealthiest citizens settling in its West End and leaving behind grand Georgian townhouses, private gardens and genteel crescents. These backstreets remain as dignified and sleepy as ever, and most of the action here lies along the district’s busy main roads. Lothian Road connects to southern Edinburgh and harbors a vague entertainment district: three theatres and the city’s main indie cinema. All attract a select crowd, the sort who appreciate the Saturday Edinburgh’s Farmers’ Market around the corner. The West End’s other great thoroughfare, Shandwick Place, is dominated by trams trundling out to the suburbs and airport, and shoppers picking up last-minute items before hopping aboard.
