Providing quality hybrid and electric pedal assisted bicycles for hire, self-guided and guided bike tours around Edinburgh. We also help organise bespoke tours around Scotland.
At the Tartan Bicycle Company we offer guided and self-guided bicycle day tours in and around the city of Edinburgh with several suggested routes. We can also help you organise your own bespoke bike tour around Scotland, if you are ambitious to explore further. We use only good quality hybrid bikes, with the option of electric pedal assist bikes. We also provide a bike hire service, if you just want to do your own thing.
With self-guided tours starting from £25 per person for a half day and £40 for a full day; we will pick you up from your accommodation before starting you on an adventure along mainly light trails and cycle paths, past some of Edinburgh's must see sites which are generally missed on foot. Cycle over the Forth Road Bridge for magnificent views of the Firth of Forth, or take a leisurely meander along the Union Canal, past the unworldly Falkirk Wheel and the ancient ruins of Linlithgow Palace, birthplace of Mary Queen of Scots. Then at the end of each tour we take you and your memories back to your accommodation for a satisfiying rest.
Our tours are designed to be taken easy, by people of almost all ages and physical ability. For an extra £10 the option of our electric pedal assisted bicycles will help take almost all the effort out of any gradient of hill.
Vehicle support is provided throughout our tours in case you take a wrong turn or have a puncture.
Included in the price:
- Transport to and from accommodation in Edinburgh, with support throughout tour.
- Bicycle, fitted with mud and chain guards, lights, bell and pannier bag.
