Description

Upperton to Falkirk

One of my favourite circular rides from home is a loop that takes me through the flat peat fields to the South of Falkirk.  There's a long slow but gentle uphill section first but then once you've reached the top is mostly flat until the final downhill section.  The ride splits roughly into thirds; Falkirk to Upperton, Upperton to Slamannan and Slamannan back to Falkirk.  This ride covers the final two thirds.

If you're interested the first third was covered previously  in these two videos:

This first section largely flat from the small village of Upperton in North Lanarkshire in Central Scotland to the village of Slamannan just South of Falkirk.  The area to the South of Falkirk is largely flat and desolate with vast areas given over to peat farming which gives rise to flat treeless fields. The ride passes through the tiny village of Limerigg beside the Black Loch popular with windsurfers. From there the ride follows the main roads to Slamannan.

The small village of Slamannan lies just South of Falkirk and from here the ride is largely flat with a fast downhill section towards the end.  The day of the ride featured very strong Westerly winds which accounts for the speedy progress when heading East and the very slow progress when heading West.
