This is a 3 hour guided bike tour from Edinburgh city centre to the sea and back in one superb loop through many different areas of this interesting and eclectic capital city.

Our guided bicycle city tour starts at the West End of Princes Street, below the towering Edinburgh Castle. We cycle past city attractions, historical sites, breathtaking views, natural wonders and have a lot of fun along the way.

By travelling the city’s superb network of bike paths and quiet side roads we will also discover the hidden gems seldom seen by the average visitor. From the canals, volcanos, hidden tunnels, secret gardens and beautiful beaches to industrial history, old railways and all the interesting facts and tales therein.

The experience also includes an optional stop in a cosy cafe for refreshments around the midway point, should you wish.
