Our first cycle ride of 2024 (run jointly with Out Velo) will take us through the delightful Loch Lomond and the Trossachs national park and Rob Roy country. Following parts of the national cycle network and quieter roads for much of the ride, our 60 mile (96km) circular route, starting in Dunblane, will take us west to Callander, from where we'll follow the cycle path that runs along the former Callander and Oban railway line. We'll leave this route just short of Lochearnhead and take the quiet south Loch Earn road eastwards to St Fillans, from where we'll follow the Three Saints Way to Comrie. From there, we'll tackle our only major climb of the day (to 237m) along the B827 to Braco, before completing our circuit back to Dunblane along the B8033.

A map of the proposed route can be found here. We'll ride as a group at a moderate pace and nobody will be left behind.
