An easy two wheel adventure that is ideal for children, as it gets you out in lovely green spaces, is the 10 mile (16 km) Glasgow Art in the Park Route. You will pass through Pollok, Ross Hall & Bellahouston Parks. The route also takes in popular visitor attractions like The Burrell Collection in Pollok Country Park. Take a breather from the pedals and be amazed at this world-famous collection of textiles, stained glass, furniture, ceramics, art objects and pictures.
The lovely 12 mile (19 km) Biggar-Broughton-Skirling Circular has some beautiful scenery. Most of this route is off road following an old disused railway line and an old drove road. It makes for a great half day or summer evening ride. Biggar is a small attractive town with a selection of good pubs and tearooms making an ideal location to stop for a bite to eat.
If you are looking for a challenging day out then cycle the Glasgow Loch Lomond Cycleway. Opened in 1989, this 21 mile (34 km) route was Scotland’s first long distance cycleway. Today it forms part of the much longer Glasgow to Inverness Cycle Route. Starting in Glasgow city centre, the route is mostly traffic free and easy to follow using a mixture of former railway lines, canal and riverside paths.
