Event description
In partnership with Forth Valley Art Beat, this July our Meanders will explore some ArtCycle installations. Own equipment required.

About this event

This July, we're excited to get out with Forth Valley Art Beat as part of their Art Cycle Events! The Wednesday Meanders for July will each visit a different art installation on the local NCN. The routes are all between 5 and 10 miles in length. There are a few different starting locations depending on dates - please see below.

Wednesday 7th July: Start/Finish at The Engine Shed, Stirling (route around Stirling)

Wednesday 14th July: Start/Finish at Willow Court, University of Stirling (route to Dunblane over the Glen Road)

Wednesday 21st July: Start/Finish at The Kelpies, Falkirk - This ride will also include a short talk from artist Audrey Grant about her new installation at Skinflats.

Wednesday 28th July: Start/Finish at The Falkirk Wheel, Falkirk (route to Canada Wood)

This ride is suitable for anyone who can already ride a bike safely on roads and is ready to start going a bit further. There are some hills on this route. If you are a total beginner, please check out our beginners cycle skills sessions on Eventbrite.

These rides will be 5-10 miles in distance and are a great way to start to go a little further or explore new routes by bike. It's also a great way to meet other people and build a bit of confidence on your bike. We will use the local cycle network and quiet roads as far as possible, but there may be some busier road crossings required.

The start and finish points are detailed above. Please arrive 10 minutes before the ride is due to start. We will set off at 1pm and aim to arrive back at the start point by 2.30pm.
