Cycling in Edinburgh

If being on two wheels is more suited to you, there is an extensive network of cycle routes in and around Edinburgh that cover most of the city for you to explore the views and its surroundings without getting caught up in traffic.

Many people cycle around Holyrood Park where you can find Arthur’s Seat. There are no official off-road bike paths here, but there is a useful shared path that runs alongside part of the Queens Drive. The path follows the road to the west and north passing by the Scottish Parliment and the Palace of Holyrood House. The path then ends by St Margaret’s Loch.

Another is the Innocent Railway Path; which is the longest and most useful of the bike tracks in the south east of the city. You can reach this path from St Leonard’s Tunnell in the East Parkside off Holyrood Park Road. The Innocent Railway Path carries NCN 1 to Dalkeith and beyond. It runs gently downhill at first, and then when arriving into the city, the path gives access to Jewel Park and Bingham and Brunstane Station.
