What you'll do

Active and sustainable tourism is important to me so I avoid the need to use vehicles to get you to the start so we begin close to the city centre, at Bridgend Farmhouse and head through the Meadows and onto the Canal network of cycle paths before cycling out to the North of the city bringing us out to 'South Queensferry'. The 3 Bridges are a feat of engineering that links Edinburgh to Fife and beyond. We are lucky enough to be able to cycle from the city centre right into the heart of the village. We shall sit underneath the Rail Bridge, to enjoy a refreshment or cycle across the Forth Road Bridge (weather permitting). This is a beautiful ride and on the way back, we pass through the immaculate, quiet grounds of the Dalmeny Estate. The ride is mostly on cycle paths, some undulating hills and very short distances on roads. This is a unique ride that is approximately 25 miles - if you are looking for a 'bit extra' in terms of riding and a stunning destination, then this tour is for you.
