Glasgow to Edinburgh via the Clyde and Union canal.

Leaving Spiers Wharf we shall follow the Forth and Clyde canal route to Falkirk. We then join the Union canal all the way to Edinburgh. The surface is mostly "gravely" but can be completed in reasonable comfort on a road bike. All other bike types are suitable...with the exception of a Penny-farthing!

I'm hoping this event will be easily accessible to everyone living in the central belt of Scotland and beyond. The start is less than 10min by bike from Queen St Station and the end close to Haymarket Station.

Lots of options for this long route. You can do the whole cycle or finish/ start half way (Falkirk/Linlithgow). Obviously some planing required here! If you decide one of these options please let the leader know well in advance.
