- Road rides leaving from Stirling/Stirling Uni ?
Will be heading over to Stirling next weekend and I’m looking for any suggestions for a road loop of between 60 and 70 miles, hopefully avoiding any of the busy main roads nearby. I don’t know the area that well, but we’ll be parking at the Uni campus and heading out from there. Any locals got any suggestions?Posted 5 years agoStirlingCrispinSubscriber
Missing busy main roads completely is difficult but they’re not too bad away from rush hour and loops can be put together mostly avoiding them.
From the Uni, I’d be heading west over the Dukes Pass (Callander via Doune) and back via Aberfoyle. Or add a few miles on by taking in Loch Katrine (closed road, and stunning!)Posted 5 years ago
Or – head out to Kippen, Fintry, Carron Valley and back into Stirling.
Or – head east through the Hillfoots, across Glen Devon and back via Auchterarder.
These routes can get icey is the temp drops and can be done keeping off main roads.
I work on Uni campus and there are a couple of roadies there that will be happy to give you more info. Ping me an email if you want me to pass your email address on.StirlingCrispinSubscriber
Oh – and head into Corrieri’s at the Causewayhead roundabout. It’s the cycling cafe. The brewery (in BofA behind the Queens’ hotel is also cyclist friendly!
And don’t forget the Sherrifmuir Rd which climbs straight out of the Uni across to Greenloaning/Blackford.Posted 5 years ago
