One of the advantages of being a cyclist in East Renfrewshire is that you get lots of practice cycling up hills. Because of the topography of the area you’ll find that, for the most part, if you don’t have to cycle uphill on the way out you’ll very likely have to cycle uphill on the way home.

However the reward for all these hills is beautiful countryside and some stunning views, particularly around Barrhead, Neilston, Eaglesham and Newton Mearns. Here are some external links to information about cycling in and around Barrhead and the surrounding area.
