Bike hire initiative is officially unveiled by mountain bike champion at Dalkeith Country Park

29th November, 2016

Tracy Moseley, World Downhill Champion and three times World Enduro Mountain Bike Champion visited Dalkeith Country Park to officially open the Criterium Cycles Hire Centre by unveiling a plaque.

Tracy spent time at Restoration Yard meeting fans and members of the public to chat to them about her career as well as give helpful tips and advice to those looking to get into the sport.

The Criterium Cycles Hire Centre is open on Saturdays and Sundays from 09.45 to 16.30. Bikes can be hired for either a three hour slot or a whole day.

Paul Bowker, Director of Criterium Cycles, said: “We were absolutely delighted to welcome World Champion Tracy to open our new Cycle Hire Centre at the brilliant Dalkeith Country Park.

“She is such an inspirational person and it was great she was able to share her experiences with so many people. We look forward to developing the cycle facilities at Dalkeith and perhaps a future World Champion will start their riding career at Dalkeith.”

Experienced Criterium Cycles staff are on hand to ensure customers are given the correct size of bike and helmet. Visitors are able to hire a selection of adult and children’s bikes as well as accessories for carrying young children.

Criterium Cycles also has a small range of accessories and spare parts available to purchase. The company’s flagship store is located within Dobbies Garden World in Lasswade.

Pre-booking of bikes for hire is recommended and can be done by calling 0131 663 5569. Further information can be found by visiting www.criteriumcycles.co.uk
