38 miles (60 km) with 400 m of ascent

We will start off with a relatively flat 20 miles or so along Sustrans route 7 from Glasgow to Balloch, before following the 'High Road of the Gaels' through Glen Fruin - the site of one of the last Scottish clan battles between the McGregors and the Colquhouns at the start of the seventeeth century. After a couple of steep but relatively short climbs to around 200m an exhilarating descent will take us down the shores of the Gare Loch before finishing with a flat ride along its shore to Helensburgh, a total distance of around 38 miles (60 km). From there we can catch a train back to Glasgow or you may prefer to cycle back if you still have plenty of energy left!
