Take in the breathtaking glens and Munros of the Trossachs National Park on this British Cycling approved event. Join the Pedal Stirling Sportive and raise money to help people with Parkinson's get active and stay active.

There are three different distance options with all routes fully signed and finishing in the same location:

The 22 mile is the gentlest route.

Starting in Kippen and passing Carron Valley, this is ideal for anyone looking to enjoy a bike ride in stunning surroundings.

The 50 mile is the intermediate route.

The route explores Flanders Moss, passing the Lake of Menteith into Fintry before ascending to the Carron Valley Reservoir.
