Bike & Go: Haymarket Station – Cycle Edinburgh!

I love cycling in Edinburgh and it’s a great way to explore the outer reaches and lesser known parts of the city! I have my own bike, but for visitors, a cheap way of doing it is Bike & Go, available at Haymarket Station for a £10 annual subscription and a £3.80 a day-rental charge. From Haymarket there are a number of options to explore. The North Edinburgh Cycle route will take you all the way to South Queensferry, an old medieval port and home to the Forth Rail Bridge. This town is home to a number of good pubs, restaurants and boutique shops.

You could also cycle towards toll cross and join the Union Canal and cycle out of the city taking a snapshot of Edinburgh’s industrial past through 19th-century tenements and aqueducts. This path stretches all the way to the Falkirk wheel, should you feel suitably energetic. There are also paths that will take you out to Crammond (check out the article), an old fishing village on the outskirts of Edinburgh with a tidal island and a great little old pub that serves traditional pub food and a fine selection of Samuel Smiths organic ales. From here you can cycle along the coast to Leith.
