Who's Cameron Muir I hear you asking - maybe John Muir's brother? Well you'd be completely on the wrong track (so to speak), although our route for this 48 mile circular ride does take in a short section of the long-distance trail named after the latter!

Cameron Muir is in fact a small area of forest and moorland to the north of the Kilpatrick Hills, traversed by a short section of 'rough-stuff' - just about a mile or so in length. Apart from this, much of this trail ride will actually be on well surfaced paths or road - so still manageable on road bikes (and there is an optional diversion via Croftamie if you want to avoid the untarred bit pictured above).

Our route will start out along the path by the River Kelvin towards Milngavie before taking minor roads through Mugdock Country Park towards Strathblane, where we'll turn west to reach the Stockiemuir road. After taking our 'short-cut' across Cameron Muir we'll join the NCN route 7, following this for the remainder of the ride through Balloch and back to Glasgow.
