    Does anyone know of a cycle route from Edinburgh to Glasgow? Has anyone here ever done it? Tips etc...

    Thanks and regards

    Haven't done it but there is more than one route.
    Forth clyde canal towpath is one.
    Antonine wall foot/cyclepath is another
    Have a look at the Sustrans map
  3. I was also looking for first hand experience, not just a bit of google!

    For example, I dont want to get Airdre and then get jumped by a bunch of ASBO Buckfast drinkng scum with nothing better to do!
  4. Along the union canal towpath , about 75 miles, flat (Obviously as its a canal) and pretty decent ground. Does go through Falkirk though but odds are you won't get raped/murdered/made to dance
  5. Best stay in Edinburgh then.........

    But then again from Airdrie to Bathgate the cycle route follows the old railway line, so quite a pleasant ride :)
