Edinburgh is an amazing city with everything from the latest and greatest in architecture, to buildings dating from the 9th century and even earlier.  It is a city of green spaces and shops, of castles and regenerated docks, graveyards and canals, myths and legends.  It is a literary city, romantic, historic and vibrant.  Edinburgh has inspired many writers in the past, among them Robert Burns, Robert Louis Stevenson and Arthur Conan Doyle.   There is no shortage of contemporary authors local to the city such as Irvine Welsh, JK Rowling, Alexander McCall Smith, Iain Banks and Ian Rankin. 

​It is a city with miles of bike paths, old railways paths, seaside promenades and Royal parkland. 

​Take an easy "themed" ride of your choice or let us know what you would like to do and we will agree a bespoke "City ride".

If you would like some off road riding you do not have to travel far from the centre of Edinburgh.  Salisbury Crags, Arthur's Seat and Holyrood Park are all within easy reach and not too technical.

The Pentland hills are a short train ride or cycle away and have some excellent cycling available.

​This would be at least a Level 2 ride.
