Cycle Steps
Starting at the top of the Wheelie Brae off of Tower road. Follow the path along to the turn style.
Climbing over the turn style cycle up the hill until you come to a t-junction in the forest.
Take a right here and cycle another 100m and then take a left.
Cycling up the hill you eventually come to a peak. This is where it starts.
Cycle as fast as you can down the other side until you come to a T-Junction and take a right.
Keeping the speed up, cycle through the bushes, watch out as sometimes they grow right over the path and throw you off your bike. I found out the hard way.
The next stretch is quite rutty but if you keep the power up your bike will follow the path.
Keep going until you come to another T-junction in which you turn right. This bit gets a little more technical now, with a burn crossing.
Cross the burn and into the mud at the other side, head up through the trees and then down to your left should be the basis of a path.
Head down through the trees, if it's dry this bit should be quite simple. If it's been raining, all the better.
At the end of this stretch you should see a wall and a path running to the right of it, staying on your bike cycle down past it on to the road.
Head left and first right down the hill into the housing estate.
Heading out the back of the housing estate you will be where Lennox Hospital used to be. I haven't been here for a while now, and I'm sure they've knocked it all down now.
Heading out of where Lennox hospital was, and turning left, this route will take you along to Clachan of Campsie on your right where Wheel Craft is.
