There's an absolute goldmine of road bike routes waiting to be unearthed around Comrie Croft. You can ride quiet backroads all day, with some of the best cake stops for miles around, up some monster climbs and come across pinch-yourself views. The most amazing thing is that there's not more people doing it! Try some of these routes for starters.
There's a good selection of quiet roads within a quick roll from the Croft. Once you negotiate 500 yards of the A85, you can potter around the country lanes or try some of the punchy climbs which are within easy reach. Here are our favourites.
A shortish route along quiet roads. This route has a couple of reasonable hills on it, and enjoys the highly popular langside over to Comrie
If you are in the mood for a decent leg stretch, these routes will give you a good 2-3 hours of riding, perfect for a half days excersize. Some have good hills, some are longer and flatter, mostly on quiet roads.
A Low Level spin around some quiet country lanes, a lovely tour around the lower lying side of Crieff. Still a couple of sharp climbs though!.
If you really want to push it, or are used to long days in the saddle, Comrie's location on the Highland Boundary Fault Line means you have a great choice of terrain whichever way you point your bike. Expect 6 hours or more of riding, proper hills and great cake stops!
A long and beautiful ride taking in Loch Earn and Loch Tay, returning via Crieff. Expect some testing climbs and some great cafe options
