Crieff Classic Cycles (CCC) is a community interest project, based around three themes:

Routes

Sharing the local routes to help establish and promote Crieff as a two wheeled hub, supporting local and visiting cyclists. In addition we aim to encourage cycling as a social activity which enhances mental and physical well-being. Click here to explore our routes.

Repair

As a qualified aeronautical engineer, with over 30 years cycle maintenance experience, it was a natural step to set up a repair and support element for CCC. We have Velotech technicians who are happy to support visiting and local cyclists to keep their bikes working.

Reuse

We reuse donated/rescued bikes, providing minimum cost cycles for those who need them. We have access to bikes donated at the Crieff recycling centre. However we are happy to collect direct from any donor. Any excess bikes are donated to Bikes for Africa.

Crieff Classic Cycles CIC is a not for profit community project to support cycling in and around Crieff.
Donations are welcome.

Crieff

The perfect destination for cycling

Being a centrally located little Scottish Town, Crieff has access to fantastic quiet, enjoyable tracks, country roads and breathtaking highland scenery. Crieff is less than an hour’s vehicle journey to Glasgow, Edinburgh and Dundee. Our routes pass through some great locations and have local facilities and cafes.

Stunning Scenery and Facilities

Crieff is well recognised as a holiday destination and is an ideal base for exploring by cyclists. Come and see what it has to offer and take roads less travelled. We have fantastic local amenities and the opportunity to do other activities such as single pitch rock climbing, Kayaking, Canoeing, river and Loch swimming and lovely local walks such as Lady Mary’s and Turleum Hill. There are community sports facilities and cultural exploration such as galleries and spa treatments.

Road Routes

01/19 - 01/23

These road routes are challenging if only due to distance! They all offer amazing cycling and stunning locations. The North West explores hidden glens, the West heads off to the Trossachs, North East explores stunning routes over to and around Aberfeldy, South and East explore the amazing roads in rural Perthshire and adjoining regions. Finally a real gem is day trip to Dundee. Still on quiet roads the route takes in the Tay Bridge and north Fife coast.

Electric Routes

01/19 - 01/23

Electric routes are sponsored by Swytch bikes and are also split into two distances with shorter routes designed to explore less visited roads local to Crieff.

These routes are of course still open to riders using physical power only.

Courses

Maintenance, skills and ‘back on your bike’!

We offer ‘back on your bike’ courses to help all sections of the community to understand how to keep their bikes safe and rideable.

Coaching/leading for those riders wanting to explore the local routes is on offer and this can also include safe riding and fundamental skills. Please contact us for bookings and availability.

We will always work to ensure you have these opportunities so please get in touch and better still grab a friend or child to come along. Make sure it’s your own child!

Other Activities

Once using Komoot, you can find the best rides in an area…as opposed to just any ride. You can search by ride (or walk) type, area or interest on their website. It’s set up so you can search a specific area, or just browse different regions, which is a fun way to start planning a stay in Crieff.
