Glasgow to Balloch Loch Lomond
This ride takes you from the city of Glasgow to the village of Balloch in the Loch Lomond and the Trossachs National Park. The route runs for just over 20 miles, using a largely traffic free section of National Cycle Network Route 7. It's a fairly flat ride taking you along the Clyde River, the Forth and Clyde Canal and finally through the lovely scenery of the Vale of Leven. As such it's a great way to reach the shores of Loch Lomond using your steam.
The route starts near Argyle Street Station and the cathedral, on the River Clyde in Glasgow. From here you can pick up a riverside path called the Clyde Walkway which will take you west along the Clyde to Clydebank. The trail continues west along the Forth and Clyde Canal to Dumbarton where you turn north to follow a nice trail along the River Leven into Balloch.
To extend the ride you can continue along the signed NCN path through Balloch Castle Country Park to Caldarven Loch and Drymen.
