Spokes Cyclists' Map of Midlothian 2015 Edition
The Spokes Cyclists' Map of Midlothian is the ultimate guide to this county's cycle paths plus the hundreds of miles of scenic roads, which are astonishingly traffic-light despite their proximity to Edinburgh - thanks to them being so rarely used by people who stick to A roads
One of the great things about Spokes' maps of Edinburgh and the Lothians is that they get updated every six years or so to keep abreast with the changes and (hopefully) the improvements in the road and cycle path networks.
So it goes with the Spokes Cyclists' Map of Midlothian 2015 Edition which incorporates:
- The new Borders Railway (opening September 2015).
- Revised NCN [National Cycle Network] routes and numbering, to take account of the railway and other changes.
- The new link from Edinburgh (Gilmerton) to Midlothian, passing under the city bypass.
- The major Bonnyrigg Hopefield scheme, with its cyclepath network.
- All the cyclist-friendly features which people value in a Spokes map – gradient and distance systems; off-road paths shown prominently; busier/quieter roads; places worth visiting, and so on…
- The main 1: 30,000 / 2 inches : mile map covers all of Midlothian (apart from the extreme southern tip around Soutra). In addition the southern and eastern extremes of Edinburgh are included – plus East Lothian as far as Prestonpans, Pencaitland and Humbie.
- The other side of the map has enlarged 1: 10,000 / 6 inches : mile detailed, maps of Bilston, Dalkeith, Danderhall, Gorebridge, Lasswade, Loanhead, Mayfield, Newtongrange, Penicuik, Rosewell and Roslin.
- The map is an invaluable resource for researching or discovering some of the most cycle-friendly routes in Midlothian (including Edinburgh) to help you plan commutes or leisure / pleasure trips.
- PLUS photos and descriptions of some of the many places of interest in Midlothian.
- The map is approx 96 x 78cm when opened and a back-pocketable 13 x 20cm folded.
