Explore cycling in Edinburgh with this free Google Earth project. Remember to use CycleEH when you check out.
There are two routes in the download.
1. Cycle the Old Railway Paths!
Zoom in to the entrance and exit to the Old Railway Path Route that I've mapped out and learn how to navigate this route.
2. Ride to the Inn!
The Union Canal starts in Edinburgh and goes through the charming little village of Ratho, 8 miles west of Edinburgh. Orientate yourself with start and finish information on Google Earth and learn a little about the history of the canal too.
This is a series of routes! Follow @ChristineEnhanc for updates on added routes.
Cycling in Edinburgh with Google Earth
The zip file contains a Keyhole Markup Language (KLM) file. A .klm file contains place marks, images, polygons, 3D models, textual descriptions, for display in Google Earth. (www.file-extensions.org/)
Load Google Earth (https://www.google.co.uk/intl/en_uk/earth/versions/) on to your phone (or computer) and import the KLM file as a project.
