Starting in the village of Longniddry near Edinburgh, ride along the coast following the southern banks of the Firth of Forth passing Gosforth Bay, Aberlady Bay and Gullane Bay as you head towards North Berwick. Just off the route at Dirleton lies the remains of the castle (pictured above), which is well worth a visit. From North Berwick you head south, passing North Berwick Law before following the railway line back to Longniddry.
The open sections of this loop are often used by local riders for a quick blast after work or at the weekends. The road is also a great way to access the Lammermuir Hills from where there are some stiff climbs and stunning views.
