The map was launched officially at the Map Reading Room, part of the National Library of Scotland , on 24th February and by the start of June , 25, copies had been distributed and as many copies again downloaded from our website. Edinburgh is pretty unique in the UK in having a network of off-street, totally traffic-free cycle and footpaths spanning the city. Every line on our map is an uninterrupted, car-free bike and footway. Edinburgh has been at the forefront of cycle mapping since the 19th century.

Many other Edinburgh cartographers soon followed suit. The craze for cycle mapping carried on until the popularity of motor cars took over. Fast forward to the s, and the importance of cycling as a means of transport meant that people again felt the need to map the streets for cyclists. There were few cycle facilities then, so the emphasis was on quiet streets. Edinburgh Council began to produce some maps, focusing on those off-street paths that there were.

Spokes , the Edinburgh and Lothians cycle campaign, seeing the need, then began producing detailed cycling maps of the city , with the first edition in These maps have continued to the present day, with the most recent Edinburgh Spokes map coming out in Cycle maps of West, East and Midlothian, as well as Glasgow have followed suit.

These maps remain the authoritative cycle maps for Edinburgh. Sustrans have taken mapping one stage further by creating and upgrading long-distance cycle paths across the UK — the National Cycle Network , several of which go through Edinburgh. Their routes come accompanied with great maps and information sheets.

We wanted something that just showed the off-street paths, and not just as a map for navigation, but as something that would double as a poster for cycling in the city, something that would show just how extensive the network of paths is for commuter and leisure journeys, and not just for cyclists but for walkers too. But as far as we were aware or could find, nowhere else had mapped cycle routes in this way, so would it work?

And would it look good and be useful? From an early felt-tip sketch of just the old railway lines in the North of the city, the designers from the Hillside Agency based m from the end of the New Town — the Shore line proved it might work and set about designing it.

We cycled to Portobello, and assessed how interconnected Silverknowes Promenade was to the line to the Waterfront. They then became lines on the map too. There was debate about showing the Meadows paths and the first draft looked like a bit too much like a Swastika in the middle of the city. Eventually, as the print deadline approached, we settled on this, our version one. There are other routes that could have been added, and many people involved in producing the map argued for and against various options.

There are routes that almost made it, and hopefully, with a bit of tarmac or other work, will appear on future maps. In the future, as signage improves, other versions may show these. Some decisions are purely subjective, and opinion will differ. We are now on version two — other versions will follow. But let us know your thoughts — innertube thebikestation. There is more to come!
