- Commuting from North Berwick to Edinburgh
- The Flying OxMember
That's a reasonable trek for a commute every day. I'd come up the main road through Gullane, Aberlady, Cockenzie, into Musselburgh, up Milton Road and past Meadowbank. It's probably not much shy of 25 miles but pretty flat, so you're looking at about 1hr 30mins each way.
Or you could just get the train…Posted 7 years ago
I live and Edinburgh and work in the city centre (Lothian Road), but my brother is renting a house in North Berwick for a week, so it seemed like a good opportunity to have a couple of days of hard commuting.
Maybe I could get the train in and cycle back. If it's anything like my current commute to the west of the city, there is usually a westerly.

Used to live in Gullane, never biked to Edinburgh but the route the Flying Ox suggests would be the way i would go. I believe the train from North Berwick is pretty busy in the morning. It may not be a bad idea to check on availability for taking a bike during peak times.Posted 7 years agomangatankMember
Quite a trek indeed! But certainly doable. The trip to the city outskirts will be lovely. Thereafter…hmm. Leith? London Road? That'll slow you down.
I used to commute in from Linlithgow via the Union Canal (excuse to use the MTB on a daily basis). It was around 23 miles (it took 120 minutes-ish), after all the twists of the route. Got the train or a lift back one day a week to keep it sane though. God knows where I got the energy for all that.Posted 7 years ago
