Landmarks/Pubs for lunch/Sites to see?
Binny Braig has great views out to Arthurs Seat. Beecraigs is nice for a picnic, if you'r lookin for a tough cycle with a rest. Shops in Linlithgow and Bathgate for fuel if required. Awesome and very very tough climbs throughout this ride. Can be done in 1.5 hours if really fit and love pain! Views from Cairnpapple are amazing prior to the 40+mph descent!
