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.

Freedom Tour (Medium - Highlands - Full Day)

Freedom Bike Tour - Loch Earn

Our Freedom bike tour is the ideal day out for cyclists who really want to get out and be at one with some of Scotland’s most spectacular scenery. This tour takes us along one of the most scenic cycle routes in Scotland, past lochs and through glens, deep into forests of Loch Lomond and Trossachs National Park, and showcasing some of the most stunning Highland Landscapes in the country.

Auld Reekie Bicycle Tour (Easy/Medium - Edinburgh - Half Day)

Auld Reekie Bike Tour - Water of Leith

The name, ‘Auld Reekie’ not only refers to Edinburgh’s historic problem with a certain bad odour which was created by bad sanitation. But also, the noxious smog that hung over the city created by household coal fires and the beginning of Edinburgh’s steam industries. Our Auld Reekie bike tour utilizes the route of Edinburgh’s ancient transport network to navigate much of the city and surrounding areas. Many of the railways and waterways which were once used in the transportation of raw materials to the factories to finished products being exported around the globe, have since been converted into shared cycle paths. This subterranean system of almost traffic free routes offer us an insight into Edinburgh’s industrious heritage.
