Cycling Without Age Scotland Route 5 – Helix Park to Clackmannanshire

Length: 30km (Estimated ride time 4 to 5 hours)

Route type: Loop

Difficulty: Low

Nestled between the north shore of the Firth of Forth and the Ochil Hills, the ‘Wee County’ of Clackmannanshire is Scotland’s smallest county. 

For the more adventurous cyclists, a 30km route from the Helix Park to the town of Clackmannan and back will take up to approximately four hours. The route takes you across the Firth of Forth, over the Clackmannanshire Bridge which has a dedicated path for pedestrians and cyclists. Once in the ‘wee county’ the route to Clackmannan leaves the main road behind, taking a quieter backroad into the town of Clackmannan. While most of the route is quite flat, the Lookaboutye Brae does have a section with an incline as you approach Clackmannan. Stop for a spot of refreshments in the picturesque little town before heading back the way you came.
