WELCOME TO BIKE COOP Bruntsfield
Our longest-established store enjoys, perhaps, the finest location of any bike shop in Britain. We occupy the ground floor of a listed Victorian building on Whitehouse Loan. The Bruntsfield, Edinburgh bike shop is skirted by The Meadows Cyclepath and it overlooks Bruntsfield Links – a much loved and well-used public park, famed for being the site of the world’s original short-hole golf course.

WHAT IT MEANS TO BE A CO-OP
We are proud to be an employee-owned cooperative since 1977!
Our founders, Gerry, Chris, and Morag believed that being a cooperative was a fairer, better way of doing things. The philosophy of Edinburgh Bicycle Cooperative is to provide a welcoming and friendly environment run by staff that are trustworthy and knowledgeable.
After working with us for a year, every employee is invited to become a member of the cooperative with an equal share in the business. So, we’re all in it together, and that’s what makes the bike coop a great place to be!
