Hi everybody,

after 4 years without cycling I got back into it today and enjoyed every single bit of it. I went along the rivers Tay and Almonds and wow, what a time I had!

It would be cool if anybody from Perth would get in touch with me and maybe show me some good cycling routes around Perth :)

I am very excited for another cycling in Scotland!

Hi

If you go into Perth City Cycles, I'm sure they have leaflets with lots of nice routes.

For starters, head over the bridge and up round the back of Kinnoull Hill, following the national cycle route. You can head straight down the other side, work your way along the back roads then climb back up via Dalreoch Moor, Kinnaird or Abernyte (all steep hills though). Or don't head straight down, turn left at Balthayock, a more gradual climb then turn left at the top, signposted Scone, and head back round via the golf courses.

Another, head out via Scone racecourse to Guildtown and back either on main road or same way if you want a quieter route. Or make it longer heading from Guildtown over the hill to Balbeggie, then home.

On cycle route along river, continue up through Pitcairngreen following the cycle route to Dunkeld. Or turn off at Huntingtower and head to Gloagburn for a cuppa.

From Cherrybank head up Necessity Brae towards Dunning. Turn at Dunning along back roads towards Forgandenny and Bridge of Allan. Stop at The Brig for a cuppa. If feeling energetic, take the Rhynd road (steep climb) back to Perth.
