95 in queue - 100s turned away

This was the scene in Causewayside outside the Bike Station as their normal Saturday adult bike sale began at 10:30am today. There are 95 people in the queue pictured and many more arrived, saw the queue and walked off.

The Bike Station is a charity funded by public money from a variety of funds and sources and supports a range of businesses in the area.

The queue this morning is made up almost entirely of students equipping themselves for getting around Edinburgh in the coming year. The Bike Station recycles and repairs old bikes and sells them at a bargain price. It also runs workshops, training courses and Dr Bike sessions.

Great job.
