Cycling in Edinburgh and Scotland


Scotland is set to become a world-class destination for cycling tourism.

Add to the Mountain Bike World Cup that has been held in Fort William for the last 11 years events like Etape Caledonia in Perthshire, the Red Bull Hill Chasers – an uphill challenge that takes place in Edinburgh  – and the series of Evans Cycles Ride It challenges and the year’s cycling calendar is already picking up speed.

“Cycling in Scotland enables you to take your time and experience truly being away from it all in some of the most remote areas in Europe,”

“You will encounter many areas of natural beauty, from moorland to forests, lochs and glens, rivers and spectacular coastlines. There are also castles, standing stones and historic settlements to explore. And if you enjoy city life, the National Cycle Network takes you into the centre of all Scotland’s major cities.”

So what are you waiting for? Get on your bike

This is a beautiful ride along the coastline of…
