Event Details

Join us for this free event, a mostly flat gravel cycle ride that is also suitable for touring bikes.

Cycling is a fantastic way to explore an area and, thanks to our experienced cycle leaders, you will discover the wildlife and landscapes on both banks of the River Ericht, connected by Kitty Swanson’s Bridge, on a ride through the heart of Scotland’s berry growing country.

The ride will take about 2.5 hours depending on experience and is around 15km long on a mixture of quiet roads, cycle paths and tracks.

Places are limited to a maximum number of eight participants and booking in advance is essential – you can find further information and secure your place here.

Children attending the ride must be over the age of 10, competent cyclists and accompanied by an adult.

This session is part of The Cateran Ecomuseum’s Travel For All Our Tomorrow’s programme which offers a number of free, active travel for leisure experiences co-designed with local communities and led by local people and which aims to encourage more people in the Tayside region to enjoy what is on their doorstep, rather than increase their carbon footprint by travelling further afield.

The guided cycle ride is being delivered by the Cateran Ecomuseum with the support of Inspiring Scotland and the Scottish Government’s Rural and Island Communities Ideas into Action (RICIA) Fund and Paths for All Smarter Choices Smarter Places programme.
