There is no doubt that we would use Tartan Bikes for our next cycling trip to Scotland! Excellent! Jenn - New York

At ‘The Tartan Bicycle Company’ we believe the use of a quality and well maintained bicycle is key to an enjoyable day’s bike ride or cycling holiday. This is why all our bicycles have been carefully selected with comfort, reliability and safety in mind.

Our fleet of bicycles consists of a range of comfortable hybrid bikes, light road bikes with carbon forks, and our ever popular electric pedal assist bikes (e-bikes), which features a bosch motor which helps boost your pedalling power, helping you ride further for longer. So whether you're planning a leisurely jaunt along Edinburgh's extensive cycle network, a week-long cycle tour around Scotland, or an afternoon road biking workout along our country roads, there's a bike here to suit almost every adventure.

Free delivery and pick up within Edinburgh when two or more bikes are rented from us. We charge an extra £5 to the cost for the delivery of a single bike. Transport outside the city can also be arranged to anywhere in Scotland, for you, your luggage and your hire bike. We'll even transport customers own bicycles. Saving you the hassle of using public transport - it can often work out cheaper! Please phone for a quote and more details, or by using our online enquiry form

** Our Bosch powered electric bicycles (e-bikes) feature the latest e-bike technology, and have a range of approximately 50 miles (80 kilometres). This is dependent on temperature, weight of rider, terrain, wind and use of the bikes pedal assist function. However, the bike will still operate as a manual bicycle without battery power. For multiple day hire we will provide a battery charger, which requires a power supply with approximately 4 hours full charge time.

Services and accessories included in the hire:

  • Delivery and uplift of bikes within Edinburgh (£5 for single bike - Free of charge for 2 or more bicycles)
  • Helmet
  • Security locks
  • Pump, spare inner tube and basic tools

What's not included:

Breakdown Assistance is not always available and will be chargeable outside the city of Edinburgh. Unfortunately, although rare, as we do our up most to avoid our bicycles receiving punctures or mechanical failings, it is impossible to eliminate these events from happening entirely. We provide basic tools, a pump, inner tube and patches with every hire. It is very important, especially on multi day trips, that the rider is familiar with how to use these tools to carry out basic maintenance to the bike. If you are unsure about how to remove a wheel from the bicycle and fix a puncture, then please ask on delivery for a demonstration.
