Gravelfoyle – Gravel Cycling at the heart of Aberfoyle’s new Tourism brand
In Spring 2021 Bike Trossachs, a local community interest company, is set to officially launch Gravelfoyle, the new destination tourism brand for the area, with the prime objective of promoting Aberfoyle as Scotland's premier Gravel Cycling destination.
With Funding from partners including Forth Valley and Lomond LEADER, The National Park, Forestry and land Scotland and The Strathard Community Trust this is an exciting tourism development for The Trossachs.
The village of Aberfoyle, located on the edge of Loch Lomond and The Trossachs National Park, within easy reach of Stirling, Glasgow, Perth and Edinburgh, is already a hotspot for the latest big trend in cycling - Gravel Riding. Within just a 12km radius of the village there is a network of over 200km of off-road, multi-surface forestry tracks and trails, gravel roads and paths in the most stunningly beautiful countryside.
The Spring launch of Gravelfoyle will feature the opening of three new waymarked routes - 10.1km, 19.4km, 28.8km – that will encourage everyone from families with an appetite for more relaxed, off-road adventures to weekend warriors keen on a longer distance challenge to be introduced to and experience the joys and thrills of gravel riding. The three routes, starting and finishing in the centre of Aberfoyle, explore Loch Ard, Loch Chon and venture deep into the Loch Ard Forest.
