Dunbar is both the perfect base for family and group cycles, and for more ambitious trips around East Lothian and the Lammermuir Hills. Most attractions are a short (flat!) cycle from the town centre and easily accessible. Dunbar is the gateway to the many cycling challenges of the Lammermuir hills – surprisingly steep climbs and almost immediate remoteness just outside the town. Whilst the John Muir Way offers a stunning 4 or 5 day cycle adventure, Sustrans and Visit East Lothian offer a number of shorter route suggestions. Bicycles – including ebikes – can be hired from Dunbar based Belhaven Bikes. There are also two local cycling groups, the Dunbar Community Cycling Club and Dunbar On Yer Bike that welcome new riders.
Please remember if you are bringing your bike by train it is advisable to book it on ahead of your visit.
