The Green Circular route takes you all the way round Dundee in a 26-mile leisurely cycle, passing parks and the Firth of Tay riverfront. The route is well signposted with information boards that highlight points of interest, historic buildings and wildlife to look out for. Keep your eyes open for the V&A, Camperdown Wildlife Centre, Discovery Point, Broughty Ferry Castle and the Tay Rail Bridge.
You can either give yourself a full day or break the route up into smaller sections and enjoy the sights over the course of your trip.
Next up is the route between Dundee City Centre and Broughty Ferry which runs alongside the picturesque River Tay. Only a meandering 4.5 miles long it’s a nice wee day out, plus the route is mostly flat. No steep uphill climbs to contend with here.
You can get started at any point on the waterfront as long as you keep the River Tay on your right. Make sure you save a couple of hours for a browse around the shops and cafes in Broughty Ferry, this quaint town is worth a gander.
If you fancy something a bit more challenging, Dundee also has a Mountain Biking Skills Trail in Templeton Woods that will test your endurance. Not only is it another great reason to get on your bike, but this trail was designed and built by the very same company who built Olympic and Commonwealth Games mountain biking facilities. The track winds its way through various terrain with a range of challenges, you’ll definitely leave with some new tricks under your belt.
