The ultimate circular cycle tour will complete a full circle around Edinburgh city. Starting and finish in The Meadows your guide will show you the beautiful parts of Edinburgh most visitors do not get the chance to see. Canals, aqueducts, railways, gardens, beaches, mountains and tunnels. The tour is approx 18 miles and you will stop for refreshments on the way. It is mainly flat but Edinburgh is built on 7 hills, so there will be some small short inclines along the way. There’s no rush and time to take lots of photos, you will take lots! Circling Edinburgh city you will never be more than 2 miles from the centre. Your guide will also give you a background about the route and give historical facts and information.
