So I don't actually do much recreational cycling around Edinburgh at all, I commute mostly on road, bike around and over the Pentlands, and hit the 7Stanes trails and nearby natural stuff around Peebles. But i've never really cycled around and out of Edinburgh.
Tomorrow i've got a friend who just wants to leisurely cycle for the day, out of Edinburgh (they mentioned something beach like, portobello seems too close to me though, but could be a start). I'm looking for an easy days worth of cycling away from traffic and some nice lunch. Any recommendations at all!?
