Cycling and Mountain Biking
There are similar trails for mountain bikers, ranging from the novice to the super fit, and the varied terrain ensures that there’s no better terrain to put your bike’s performance to the test!
For centuries, active folk have been sporting about in the fresh air of Perthshire. So it's none too surprising that such modern-day sports as mountain biking in the Highlands or road cycling on intertwining roads have pervaded the heart of Scotland.
Fantastic local trails and beautiful tree lined roads and routes, the colours changing as the seasons.
Over 30 caches have been set along the Clan Trail; around Loch Rannoch; on Rannoch Moor and in the woods on the south side of Loch Rannoch at Carie.
Sign up for this fun activity at www.geocaching.com and basic membership is free.
Use a local postcode such as PH17 2QW and you will find some great caches. Select ones with terrain and difficult rating to suit your needs. Enter the location co-ordinates from the website into your GPS. Read the description and don’t forget the hints. Now enjoy the hunt for the cache using your GPS.
Park your car carefully and start by marking the location as a waypoint to make sure you find your way home. Why not go by bicycle?
Once you’ve found your cache don’t forget to sign the log-book in the box, trade some family friendly treasure then carefully hide it in its original position.
