ROAD-users are asked to exercise caution as nearly 300 cyclists take part in Pedal the Park through Inverclyde on Sunday (23 April).
Clyde Muirshiel Regional Park along with Ride 63 Community Cycling Club is hosting the challenging 100-kilometre road cycling sportive around the scenery of Renfrewshire, Inverclyde and North Ayrshire.
Cyclists will leave in two-minute intervals from Castle Semple Visitor Centre in Lochwinnoch at 8.30am.
The route takes them roughly around the Regional Park’s 108 boundary and features two challenging climbs, one out of Greenock up the Shielhill Glen Road from Inverkip and the other up over the Dalry Moor Road from Fairlie.
Cyclists will be going through the following locations: Lochwinnoch, Bridge of Weir, Houston, Port Glasgow, Greenock, Gourock, Inverkip, Largs, Fairlie, Dalry and Kilbirnie.
Organisers expect the fastest cyclists to take about three hours and others up to six hours.
The event is again supporting CLIC Sargent by donating a third of all entry fees to help children with cancer in the local area.
