What You'll Do

Cycle from city to shore on this bike tour that will take you from the heart of Edinburgh's beautiful Old Town, all the way to the vibrant, up and coming neighbourhood of Leith, where you can escape the tourists and discover one of the capitals hidden gems.

This guided bicycle city tour starts in the city centre, and you’ll begin by pedaling from Harrison Park to Leith, through the city and its superb network of bike paths, following the course of the city’s Union Canal, experiencing the typical Scottish rural landscape.

The experience also includes a quick stop in a nice warm cafe in Leith or Portobello, depending on which way you and your guide choose to reach the seaside. From there, it’s time to head back to town and complete your loop.

You’ll discover many stunning, secret spots you’ve never heard of, as your guide makes the most of that essential local knowledge, and helps you cycle to the corner you would never find on your own.
