East Lothian is a wonderful county for cycling especially if you’re a bit of a novice or want to go out on a leisurely cycle with the family.

It’s mainly flat and not too hilly for starters – which always helps – and the scenery is magnificent. Take the coastal road with views across the Firth of Forth, where the road flows along the sea in and out of the pretty coastal villages. If you are looking for more of a challenge, then follow the roads further inland where rolling countryside leads into the foothills of the Lammermuirs with wonderful views across the whole county.

East Lothian is compact too which makes it easier to visit many of the places of interest in one day. With many quiet country lanes to explore, you can see for yourself the beautiful countryside on a bike and visit the sites and attractions the county has to offer.

If off-road cycling is your thing, there are loads of great cycle trails to test your skills with many exhilarating routes through the countryside.
