56 km (35 miles) with around 570m of ascent

A pre-Xmas ride with a difference - mostly away from busy roads and including some trails along the River Avon.

Our route will take us along the Clyde Cycleway through Blantyre and along the edge of Strathclyde Park into Chatelherault Country Park. After a quick lunch stop there, we'll follow the River Avon south-east, past the ruins of Cadzow Castle along some trails through Hamilton's High Parks. Our return route will take us along minor roads between East Kilbride and High Blantyre.

The event has been classed as off-road as over half of the planned route is on cycle paths or forest trails and is most suited to hybrid, mountain or gravel bikes, but less suitable for road bikes with skinny tyres!

Distance will be around 35 miles. As it starts to get dark around 4pm, bring lights just in case!
