Based at the Balquhidder village hall and making use of the new National 7 cycle route loop, the Kirkton Glen forestry tracks and Kirkton field, the day promises something for all ages with:-
All day food with coffees, teas home baking and an all day BBQ
Free bicycle clinics/checks from Wheels Cycling Centre
Treasure hunts for cyclists and those on foot
A Fun tent with kids face painting 'n stuff
A kids bike agility in Kirkton field
A Big Noisy Family Bike Parade lead by the pipers and bikers of Balquhidder
A Kirkton Glen Mountain Bike Ascent Race for keen mountain bikers
A Race round the new National 7 Cycle Loop for keen road cyclists
A series of 3 short "run and bike" Duathlons for all ages
If you have no wheels or simply don't fancy riding then the organisers do hope you'll dig out your klaxons, horns and bells and still come along for the fun of it to make a big noise supporting and encouraging the local riders as they depart and return from their pedalling antics.
To top the day off we have a BYO Ceilidh/Party in the hall from 8pm. Mark it in your diary and get pedalling over the summer!
Full information with the whole timetable of events and entry forms etc is on the webpage at www.balquhidder.info
Central Scotland is a great area for cycling holidays with many miles of cycle routes and forest trails to enjoy. If you are planning a holiday in the area in September why not enter for this great family event.
We have a number of self-catering holiday cottages right in the heart of Balquhidder and the surrounding area so why not give some thought to staying in one of our cottages for a break in September.
