Recommended Cycle Routes (and places)
Pleasant places to ride your bicycle: some training rides, others tours, or even just ways to get from A-B within the City of Edinburgh.
There may be errors and omissions, so take responsibility for yourself :)
Posted on June 7, 201480 miles and 7700 feet of paradise riding in north-west Scotland - amazing roads, better scenery...
Posted on February 26, 2013Fifty miles of near-deserted tarmac to the south of Edinburgh, with just a couple of busier bits, and plenty of cake!
Posted on August 15, 2012In the middle of the city, in the middle of nowhere, the smell of freshwater hand-reared sausage and newly laid home-kept chickens' eggs calls to the empty stomach...
Posted on August 2, 2012~55 miles, ~2800ft of ascent, deserted roads on this cycle route around the coast of Arran - an excellent day out for all the family!
Posted on April 22, 2012An Edinburgh loop around the Pentlands - one for the early birds, with ~55 miles, ~2500ft of ascent, bigger roads. Some solid pain, high chance of seeing (chasing?) other riders, some longish pulls but no serious hills.
