History & Wildlife Bike Ride
Sat 13 May 2017, 11:30 – 14:30 BST
The group will be leaving from Culross (Big car park at Balgownie W) at 11.30am and cycling along to Limekilns and back (approx. 16 miles return) along the Fife Coastal Path. We will stop for (free) refreshments in Limekilns.
There are wonderful views along the route, starting with the historic and fascinating village of Culross, and following the shore of the Forth Estuary for much of the way, with great views of the estuary's wildlife. We will make a brief tour to look at the impressive remains of the Charlestown Limekilns, once the largest industrial-scale limekilns in Scotland. We will turn back at Limekilns, a pretty seaside village, where we will stop for a break and refreshments. The cycle ride will be led by experienced leaders from the Stirling Cycle Hub. There will also be knowledgeable people on hand to tell us more about the wildlife and history of this part of the Inner Forth estuary.
Please come equipped for the weather. We will be offering teas, coffees and cake, but you will need to bring any other food and drink.
Free hire bikes will be available if you don't have your own cycle. These must be booked in advance via Stirling Cycle Hub. Please contact us to book any cycle hire, tel 01786 474160, email firstname.lastname@example.org.
