Cycle routes

We have chosen some of our favourite routes around Falkirk.  We hope you enjoy them and don't forget to stop for coffee & cake!

1. The Helix & The Kelpies

The Helix & The Kelpies
From Falkirk Active Travel Hub head down East Bridge Street and cross Corporation Street onto Eastburn Drive. Turn right at the top of the hill and cycle into Callendar Park. Follow along past Callendar House and Callander lake and exit the park onto Callendar Boulevard. Cycle down to the roundabout and dismount at the dropped kerb. Safely cross Callander Road on foot and remount on the opposite side. Once you have cycled under the railway tunnel (just before Benny T's) turn left and cycle down Bog Road and onto the shared use path. Follow this down to the right and dismount for the A9 crossing. Once across turn left and follow the shared use path that routes along the right-hand side and then behind Falkirk Stadium. Once round the rear of the stadium follow the underpass route into the Helix and past the lake. Follow the shared use path as it weaves round to the right and then left towards the Kelpies. There is ample signage to direct you easily once within the Helix. Café stop: The Kelpies Visitor Centre Café
