Here is a fairly flat route that takes in some of the big name temples in eastern Kyoto.
From Kyoto Station, you can ride in one day to Kiyomizu Temple, Nanzenji Temple, Eikando Temple, Honen-in Temple, Kurodani Temple, and Ginkakuji Temple (pictured at right).
Also, a good portion goes along the Kamo River, one of the great "bike lanes" in the world.
Note: you will want to park and then walk up to Kiyomizu Temple. Ditto for Philosophers Walk. Both are very crowded with pedestrians.
