About Guided Cycle Ride from Strathclyde Park to Chatelherault Country Park and back

This ride is part of North Lanarkshire Walking and Cycling Festival.

Our cycle rides are led by trained Sustrans volunteers and ride at an easy pace to suit the group. There will be a leader at the front and another member of ride staff at the back to ensure that no one will be left behind.

Traffic free routes throughout on even, tarmac surface. Some small climbs on the way there but downhill all the way back!

Refreshment stop at Chatelherault Country Park.
Toilets at the start and at Chatelherault.

Suitable for most abilities, including families. Children are welcome as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

You need a working bike and have a reasonable degree of competence in riding it. Wear casual, comfortable clothes suitable for the weather on the day.
