There are some hilly bits on this 52 mile ride, but you can duck out at Perth if the going gets tough

A chance "Tay" get round this body of water on a bike with good Outdoorlads company.

We will start out from the V&A, crossing over the Tay Bridge and head West towards Perth.  This section will tend to be hillier into the prevailing headwind (but then you most likely get a tailwind coming home!) We will be passing through some villages on the way so there will be a chance to get some food etc.

Lunch will be at the Wetherspoons "Capital Asset" pub, which is where you can meet us if us if you are only coming for the 2nd half of the ride (Please let the event leader know beforehand if you are doing this!)

On the after lunch, coming out of Perth there is a sharp climb up to Kinnoull Hill... (yes we can stop and admire the view at the top). After we drop down that one the rest of the ride is relatively flat. Errol is halfway between Perth and Dundee and after that it's an easy cycle back to where we started.

This is a 52 mile ride if you do the whole ride.  Perth is conveniently half way round and it does have a good railway station #JustSaying
