Dundee Green Circular
Dundee’s Green Circular is our circular cyclable sight-seeing route covering 25 miles around the city!
Almost all of the Green Circular is on shared use paths, although there are some sections on the road. The route is suitable for all standard bikes, mainly with a tarmac surface. Unsurfaced paths at Templeton Woods and Panmurefield may be muddy or stony. The route is well signposted in both directions, but a copy of the Dundee Cycle Map is useful to help find your way and indicates barriers which may be difficult for tandems, trikes or cargo bikes.
Dundee's Greenways are routes that join the Green Circular to other destinations across the city. The routes provide useful links between work places, shops, leisure facilities and recreation areas.
Places of interest on the route:
Lynch Sports Centre
Caird Park, Mains Castle (not open to the public) and Regional Performance Sport Centre
Grassy Beach and Royal Tay Yacht Club
HMS Unicorn and Victoria Dock
Dundee Active Travel Hub and Urban Beach
Are you into Mountain biking?
Dundee has a specially built mountain bike trail and other suggested routes across the city.
The challenges along the trail include steps and drops, jumps, tight corners, rock and root obstacles and challenging climbs. Please read the sign at the start of the trail for safety information and tips. The blue trail has easy options around TTFs and is suitable for riders with experience of off road riding. The red trail is for experienced riders. You will need a well maintained quality Mountain Bike and wear cycle helmet and gloves.
BMX riders are welcome at the large skate park in Dudhope Park and smaller skate parks in South Road Park and Finlathen Park. Dudhope skate park has an active community and experienced BMXers and skaters support the less confident. https://friendsofdudhopepark.com/skatepark/
If you fancy exploring a bit further south NCN Route 1 will take you over the Tay Road Bridge to Tentsmuir Forest and St Andrews along the Fife Coastal route. Or you could head east and along the lovely Angus Coastal route, off road path, past Monifieth to Carnoustie, Easthaven and Arbroath. Try heading west, across the Carse of Gowrie which is known for very flat quiet roads and easy, fast cycling. The NCN 77 connects Invergowrie, Kingoodie, Errol and Perth.
