More than 330 kids took part in the Tweedlove Family Day cycle event, of which Edinburgh Napier University was a sponsor for the third year running.

Business Development Executive Danny Cowe and Dr Geraint Florida-James represented the University and the Mountain Bike Centre of Scotland at their branded stand, where they fielded questions about studying here and the University’s role in supporting mountain biking across Scotland.

The Edinburgh Napier sports science team were also out in force the previous weekend to support some of the leading riders in the International Enduro event.

The picture shows data being collected for PhD student Lewis Kirkwood, who is on a funded studentship looking at the demands of enduro mountain bike racing.
