Sky to Sea (Easy to Medium - Edinburgh - Half Day)

Sky to Sea - Arthur's Seat

Our 'Sky to Sea' bike tour has been our most popular route since our humble beginnings back in 2013. As the name suggests, this half day tour takes us to the highest and lowest points of Edinburgh accessible on tarmac. From our very own volcano, Arthur's Seat, with its panoramic views across the city, to the golden sandy beaches and sea views at Portobello. We also pay a visit to the Port of Leith, with over 600 years of maritime history.

The Bridges (Medium - Edinburgh - Half Day)

The Bridges Bike Tour - Dalmeny House

Our scenic Bridges bike tour takes us beyond the city boundaries of Edinburgh, along the Firth of Forth shoreline to South Queensferry, before cycling over the spectacular Forth Road Bridge. This route is steeped in history and has plenty of picturesque seaside charm. You'll learn about Edinburgh's first iron age settlers and visit the site of a Roman fortress. We'll cycle through the grounds of a Scottish country estate with a it's very own castle and stately home, and marvel in the engineering of UNESCO world heritage site, The Forth Bridges.
