Where does the route go?
The Wee Jaunt Falkirk takes place in the wonderful Helix Park in Falkirk. The route is on closed paths and roads, goes along the canal and takes in the Kelpies and the Falkirk Stadium. The route is 7.5 miles long which is two loops of the park; it’s a flat ride and the perfect length for younger riders.
