Start point – The Bike Station, , 250 Causewayside, Edinburgh, Midlothian, EH9 1UU

This is a fantastic route out of Edinburgh City Centre towards quiet country lanes through Midlothian. The route contains some challenging short steep climbs mixed with rolling country lanes. I’ve just completed this route today as a pre-ride assessment so you can read about it here.

Level – Steady

Come and join us on this great leg stretcher – a mainly traffic free or low traffic route from Edinburgh to Balerno. This beauty of a route takes in some of the lower slopes of the stunning Pentland Hills which provide some amazing views over the city on the return leg. A great chance to take your riding a little further and explore our wonderful city from the saddle.

Silverknowes Esplanade – Sunday 13th October – 10.00am

Start point  – Morrisons Supermarket Car Park, Granton, Edinburgh

Distance – 5.6km

Come and join us on a family friendly, scenic and tranquil ride along Silverknowes Esplanade towards Cramond. This ride has it all, great views of the Forth Bridges, Incholm Island and if the weather is fine, views all the way across the Forth to Fife. This traffic free ride is perfect for families with kids and anyone getting back into gentle riding after a break, so come on lets go!

Go to the web site to book a free place if you like the sound of it.

Oh and best of all!!

What is a Sky Ride?

Sky Ride Edinburgh is supported by Halfords cycle experts who are on hand to make sure that your bike is in top shape for your ride. Whether it’s a wonky handlebar or a rusty chain, the Halfords team will be there to help, so pop in and see them or keep an eye out for them on the route.

If you’re heading down to Sky Ride Edinburgh, be sure to pop by and see Jaffa at the Bike Cafe to grab some delicious Jaffa fruit. As well as nutritious fruit, they’ll also be handing out Jaffa reflectors, ponchos and Tesco vouchers.
