Beyond the Network
The Strathmore Cycle network (SCN) is not only linking up 3 towns, but linking up communities, facilities and it is creating links to explore further. Allowing people to walk and cycle to places they have not been able to do before without going on busy roads.
As this is an expanding network for the community please contact us if you know of other great paths, and facilities that should feature on this section of our website.
Below are some extended areas where you can walk and cycle to thanks to the SCN.
For Road Cycling : There is a great cycling book available from the Coupar Angus Cycling Hub called 'Adventures on two wheels in the Vale of Strathmore' By John Palfreyman. The maps below give a good indication of how many cycling routes there are in the area. The book gives a clear breakdown of the routes in the key, from distances to facilities and local attractions and has a great guide that tells you how hard it is in a very down to earth and realistic way. You will be able to pick a route that suits your ability and time scale.
For Mountain biking :
Check out Alyth Bike Park which is an amazing facility for learning to mountain bike, improve your skills and get the adrenaline going on the jumps and berms.
If you are looking for more advanced trails you can head to Ballo and Hallyburton forest near Coupar Angus where you will find a huge network of trails from fireroads to full on natural and technical descents. Check out a lot of the routes on trail forks here
For bmx and jump bikes : There are a great range of facilities throughout the 3 towns.
With Skate parks in Rattray and Coupar Angus, Pumptrack and jump park in Alyth and the newly built Rattray BMX track we really are spoilt for choice with something for everyone.
For Walking : We are spoilt for choice from the Blairgowrie path network to the Cateran Trail
The Perth and Kinross Countryside trust website is a great site to find loads of local walking routes and paths.
There are some great walks in and around Coupar Angus. And of course the Den of Alyth and the Strathmore Cycle network from Alyth is made up of off road river paths and quiet roads with amazing scenery.
