The Spokes Edinburgh Cycle map is the essential guide to cycling in Edinburgh – over 100,000 of these fantastic maps have been sold since the first edition in 1987!!  Roads and paths are marked according to suitability for cycling, and the latest edition includes the recent new and planned routes.   Smaller scale maps on the reverse help you plan journeys further afield.   The Glasgow map follows a similar approach.

Our three Lothians maps are also of excellent design, with whole-area mapping at 1:30,000, distances between junctions, and a much-appreciated and easy-to-understand gradient system.   The reverse sides have street plans at 1:10,000 of many of the towns (space permitting) and information about places of interest for visitors.

You can view the coverage of each of the Edinburgh and Lothian’s maps by clicking on the appropriate link here: EdinburghEast Lothian, Midlothian, West Lothian.

Just started cycling to get fit, used your East Lothian map today and really enjoyed it. It’s a great map! Thanks :) ”  [tweeted by @LA_Anders, 2013]

I am a great fan of your maps – especially the Edinburgh one which has been a joy to use and a joy to discover the (almost!) inter-connecting car-free pathways.”  [Ben Vogelsang, cycling photographer, 2013]

Thanks to our Spokes Maps we were rightly guided all the way … we really felt in good hands.”  [Dead Dog Blog, July 2012]

On a family ride to the Borders my brake cable broke – I checked the Spokes Midlothian map and found a shop in Penicuik (Motavation) – they couldn’t have been more helpful.”   [SRD, July 2010]
