The Postcode Challenge is Back - Sunday 28th April 2013, 11am - 4pm
For those of you who haven't taken part before, the Challenge is a treasure hunt on wheels (and foot). Participants check in at 10 points on the North Edinburgh cycleway, for the chance to win some great prizes and to have lots of fun. We're now also welcoming walkers (and runners), who can take part by checking in to a reduced number of stops along the route.
North Edinburgh Cycleways
Each stop will be marked by a stand, run by a local organisation, who will have information and maybe even some goodies to give away. You can start at any one of the 10 stands, where staff will give you a card, so that you can collect stamps at each of the locations.
Cyclists should collect stamps from all 10 locations, while those on foot need only collect stamps from 5 of the locations.
Hand in your card at Fiveways Junction before 4pm, to enter into the prize draw!
You can enter by yourself, as a family or as part of a team. You can go at your own pace and it's fun and friendly day out for anyone.
This event is part of the Innertube project, funded thanks to players of People's Postcode Lottery and to the People's Postcode Trust.

This event is one of several activities that ELGT and The Bike Station have delivered to work towards 'Inflating the Inner tube'.
So what's next?
ELGT will be delivering a programme of activities along the route, designed to raise awareness of this fantastic resource and to help improve the network for all users, including walkers and cyclists, as well as the local wildlife. Activities will include conservation opportunities, environmental education, and guided walks to explore the local habitats and biodiversity along the routes.
