As the seasons change, new colours roll in and there's a whole new perspective to our seasons riding. Autumn is rolling in, and we're ready to ride with our top three Autumn ride routes.
First up is the Aberfoyle loop - Taking in the Dukes Pass, this is the perfect time to head out and see a vast array of Autumn colours by bike. The stunning scenery unfurls mile after mile, corner after corner. This route is perfect for a bright autumnal afternoon, taking a little under 3 hours with excellent opportunities to stop off for refreshments. As the route is particularly forresty, caution should be taken as leaf fall increases through the season. The tea, have done this loop a few times now and it never fails to satisfy the need for a good mix of roads and landscapes.

Next is our Land and Sea Route – Ideal for a rare bright warmer autumn day. Just 166 miles but over 5 hours riding, our Land and Sea route offers the best of our immediate West Coast. Taking in views of Loch Lomond and up to the legendary Green Wellie, this is a route a few of our riders may already be familiar with – but heading back is the opportunity to take in historic castles and villages as you head down to Kilchurn and through to Inveraray – another perfect place for a comfort break and some food. Heading on past Inverary Castle, enjoy the sweeping roads and Lochs and Hills as our route take you through glens to the Firth of Clyde for a ferry. But our coastal adventure doesn’t end there, head along the Clyde to Historic Largs and back to West Coast over moorland hill tops. It’s a good run out on your bike and a warm welcome awaits back at West Coast where you can catch our café 9-4pm Tuesday to Saturday.

Finally, one for our Adventurous Pan America Riders. Taking in High elevation and single-track roads we advise checking this route before undertaking it. Heading out alongside Loch Lomond up to the Rest and Be Thankful is a regular route for a lot of our riders, but take a left and follow a winding, forest flanked single road accompanied by a babbling burn. This section affords beautiful views towards Inverary but is quite twisty. Back to a main road heading still further West, if extra adventure is what you seek there are plenty of side roads which offer single track alternate views. Though sticking with our route won’t disappoint taking in undulating forest roads and hill tops eventually dropping down into Dunoon to take the ferry back. Only to cut back to more hill tops with vast views of the Inverclyde before cutting through the Renfrewshire hills back to West Coast. A full 5 hour ride out and exceptional views await you.
