Edinburgh is one of the best cities in the world to live, work and study in.
It offers a great quality of life, and has world famous outdoor spaces, architecture and culture.

You can cycle from the west end of the city centre out to South Queensferry. Join the North Edinburgh Path Network route 1 at Balbirnie Place. At South Queensferry there are a variety of cafes and restaurants where you can get refreshments and take in the stunning views of the bridges.
Alternatively, you can use National cycle Route 75 to visit Edinburgh attractions such as the Colinton Tunnel and the shore at Leith.
The Pentlands loop starts in Redhall park near Lanark road, and takes in some stunning views of the city while using no or low traffic roads.
For a longer cycle, you can use National Cycle Route 754 to get to The Kelpies in Falkirk. Either take the train back to Edinburgh, or cycle both ways to double the challenge! Check out the Pentlands route here.
