Annan to Edinburgh 125 miles

Southern Scotland - over 3 days

Introducing the latest C2C route, which allows you to explore the scenic Scottish borders by bike, making your way to Scotland’s capital Edinburgh, and then finishing at the iconic Forth Bridge.
This signed Scottish C2C ride has it all, from the rolling hills of Dumfriesshire, the classic climb named Devils Beef Tub, to the costal Portobello Promenade.
Our tours see this ride completed over 3 days of cycling, which makes for the perfect combination of challenge and time to explore the sights. As we start and finish just outside of Edinburgh, this ride fits in perfectly with extra days, before or after, exploring the stunning Scottish capital.
Access by road, train and flights into the city’s airport, make this tour achievable from all over the UK and further afield.  

The 125 mile route is a perfect combination of scenic roads, and traffic-free cycleways making it ideal for road or hybrid bikes, along with their sister e-bike versions.

To make the most of the weekend we start our tour on Thursday evening with a night of accommodation in the shadow of the Forth Bridge at Queensferry South, transferring to the start Friday morning. After 3 days in the saddle, you will find yourself back at the Forth Bridge on Sunday afternoon,  where you can jump into your car, or onto the train to explore the city or start your homeward journey.
