Edinburgh is great for walking and cycling with its fantastic network of off-road paths across the city.
These paths are for everyone. Whether you’re out for a stroll, heading to work, off for a run, walking the dog, taking a leisurely bike ride or out for a family adventure with the kids.
So everyone can share the paths in safety and comfort, please follow this simple code of conduct.
