Another very pleasant traffic free cycle by the surprisingly rural canal path , along the foot of the Campsie Fells with beautiful autumn colours . Lunch at Falkirk Wheel. Return same way , or you could get the train back if you have had enough !
Distance:27 miles one way , obviously 54 miles return
Time: 6 hours
Meetup Location: carpark at Lock 27 pub , top of Crow Rd North.
Route: National Cycle Route 754 .
Suitability: Not really for Mountain Bike macho men or Tour de France tyros , this is for folk who just want to go for a pleasant leisure cycle along cycle paths or quiet country roads . Doesn't really matter what kind of bike you have , or what you wear ( Lycra certainly not compulsory ! ) We'll cycle at a MODERATE pace , stopping for coffee or lunch if we come across a nice tearoom or pub. Afterwards we may cycle on a bit further....or we may decide we've done enough ! Get the picture ? .....Chillaxing by bike.
