If you like going at your own pace and avoiding groups, then this tour is for you. It is a small tour without big numbers. Active and sustainable tourism is important to me so I avoid the need to use vehicles to get you to the start. We shall meet at Bridgend Farmhouse, close to the city centre and fit your bike before heading through Craigmillar Castle Park and into Holyrood Park and riding right beside our extinct volcano, 'Arthurs' Seat'. We shall mostly be on traffic free routes all the way to Portobello Beach for a refreshment sitting outside in the sun or inside if it rains before heading back and taking the historic 'Innocent Tunnel' right underneath Arthur's Seat. This will be a 12 mile round trip and takes approx 3 hours. Please contact me if you do not see any dates that suit you.
I have 4 other tours on Airbnb: 1. Complete circular tour of Edinburgh (4 hrs, 18 miles) 2. Mary Queen of Scot's tour to Craigmillar Castle & Holyrood Palace (3 hrs, 8 miles) 3. Mountain bike day out 4.5 hrs 4. The Forth Bridges tour (25 miles, 4.5hrs) Please contact me for the tour which suits you best. I was born and brought up in Edinburgh so know the best cycle routes around the city. I am a qualified cycle leader, mountain bike leader and bicycle mechanic. I have been leading rides for British Cycling since October 2018. I have up to date Outdoor First Aid and certified in Child Protection. I am an international PE teacher and have extensive experience managing child and adult groups. I love cycling and love showing visitors Edinburgh on 2 wheels. It's far more fun on bikes!
