-------------------------------------------------------

Join us for a circular cycle ride around the Firth of Forth.

Starting off in the historic town of Linlithgow (conveniently accessible by train from both Glasgow and Edinburgh) our route of around 43 miles will take us through Grangemouth, across the Kincardine Bridge before following a section of the Fife Coastal Path through the village of Culross, noted for its many unique historical buildings, many of which are now maintained by the National Trust for Scotland. After crossing the Forth Bridge, we will complete the run with a ride through the Hopetoun estate and finish with a short section of the Union Canal towpath.

Much of the route will be on quiet minor roads or well-surfaced cycle paths.
