Whether you want the activity and exercise of a mountain bike or the convenience of an e-bike, choose your weapon and set off on an action-packed tour of Edinburgh and its surrounding areas of iconic sights and hidden gems. Over 4 hours, see more of Edinburgh than you could just by following the guidebooks with your guide, who will take you through Cramond village and along the Firth of Forth.
