Club Loan Bikes

The club are proud to offer three Scott road bikes for hire to all club members. 3 frame sizes are available:

  • 49″ (Suitable height 5′ to 5′ 5″)
  • 52″ (Suitable height 5′ 5″ to 5′ 8″)
  • 56″ (Suitable height 5′ 9″ to 6′)

VSCC loan bikes are now being managed by Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative in Chapel Allerton. If you would like to loan a bike for whatever reason – to try road biking for the first time, to tide you over because of a theft or while repairs are carried out, or for a visiting friend – then these bikes are available for a nominal fee of £10 per week. We have three different size bikes, small, medium and large, all of which come equipped with a pump and a saddle bag containing spare tube, and puncture repair kit.

Please email our loan bike officer Steve Wilkins to book a bike, he will organise it with EBC where you will be able to collect the bike from. You just need to a member of VSCC, or have a member vouch for you, or be a member of VSAC.

Membership Card

Every member receives a membership card, enabling you to detail your name, emergency contact & medical information. It is worth carrying this with you when out on any ride not just club rides.

It will also entitle you to a number of reseller discounts, but you’ll need to present your card to take advantage of these.
