There are a multitude of possibilities for cycling around peebles, and the scenery is breathtaking wherever you go. Some routes are of course harder than others but there is something for everyone - whether it's just exploring the quiet streets of the town, a gentle cycle out around cademuir, the cycle path out to cardrona or tackling the Tweed Cycleway which stretches from Biggar in the west to Berwick-upon-Tweed on the east coast.
