If you’re looking for some inspiration to help you get more active this autumn you might be interested in our new, free walking and cycling challenges that we are running this October.
The Inner Forth Futures Wanderings and Windings Autumn Challenge is open to anyone who’d like to explore this fascinating part of the country on foot or by bike. We worked with local communities to create nine new trails around the Inner Forth area in 2019, called Wanderings & Windings, and now we want to encourage more people to use them – because though we say it ourselves – they’re brilliant!. There are trails through Falkirk Council, Stirling Council, Clackmannanshire Council, Fife Council and West Lothian Council areas – and something for everyone, with challenges ranging from 5 miles walking to 160 miles cycling!
Participants who complete their challenges will receive a free bespoke medal and certificate to celebrate their achievement.
The Inner Forth is a beautiful part of the world all year round, but in autumn it’s even more special as the woodlands turn golden, the skies fill again with the wild geese returning, and our coastal saltmarshes and mudflats are home once more to the many thousands of waders and wildfowl that spend their winters with us.
The challenges are part of the Scotland-wide celebrations for the Year of Coasts and Waters, highlighting the fantastic seas, rivers and lochs that are a big part of what makes this country so special.
