Cycling

The Pentland Hills Regional Park is a great place to enjoy on wheels. There are many cycling routes for all levels of fitness and ability as most of the 100km of paths are suitable for cycling.

We ask that you avoid the ridge paths when it is wet, as they are particularly vulnerable to erosion. We post seasonal signage asking mountain bikers to avoid certain lambing fields (especially at night), as livestock are particularly vulnerable at this time. Please always be aware that other users will be on the routes, and do not expect them to move out of your way.

Ministry of Defence land requires particular care as military training and live firing can take place at any time.

The MoD state:

 Live firing is restricted to the Live Firing Range at Castlelaw. The primary land use is for military dry training (i.e. use of blank ammunition). Red flags (daytime) and lamps (night-time) are flown / shown when firing is taking place and walkers are not allowed into this Danger Area.

This advice also applies to mountain bikers.
