Start your day of exercise and fun by meeting your group and guide at Bridgend Farmhouse, 10 minutes car/uber from The Royal Mile. After a short meet and greet with your guide, set-off along cycle paths into Holyrood Park.

It was an amazing experience for me and my 8 years old daughter! Perfect-fit bikes, beautiful scenery, great tour, lots of information all the way through, cosy chocolate-stop by the sea, the most friendly guide. I would highly recommend it
