Cycling Without Age Scotland Route 2 - Helix Park and the Kelpies

Length: 9km (Estimated ride time 1.5 to 2 hours)

Route type: Loop

Difficulty: Low

Take a trishaw tour around the Helix Park, the Kelpies and along the banks of the River Carron. This tour, which must be pre-booked, takes in all the main attractions of the Helix Park, including the picturesque Helix Park Lagoon and the Plaza Café and past busy play areas before cycling to the majestic Kelpies. Get up close to these magnificent steel structures created by artist Andy Scott as you cycle around each one.

The tour then carries on, following the Helix North path. Here, as you follow the banks of the River Carron, you’ll find a range of sculptures and art installations. Look out for ‘Love and Kisses’ which pays tribute to the Roman heritage of the Falkirk area and the interactive ‘Human Sun Clock’. You’ll then return to the Helix Park to complete the tour. The 9km tour takes roughly 1.5 to 2 hours to complete.
