Approx 16 miles. On a traffic free route until you reach Bardrainney, where you may encounter some busy traffic. Rolling hills in parts but should not be too difficult.

Start from the site of the old Paisley West Railway Station which was once part of The Paisley Canal Line.
The site of the old station is on the junction of B7754, Maxwellton Street and Craw Road, Paisley.
From the site of the station, cycle along the cycle path under the roadway which takes you along the path parallel to Green Road.
Continue along this path and it will take you through the suburbs of Paisley twisting and turning along the path of the old railway passing houses and various parks.

After about one and a half miles the path begins to run alongside today’s railway line.

Follow the path alongside the railway and after 800 yards you will come to a small road named Old Road crossing your path. Turn right at this point following the cycle path over the railway line through the parkland on the other side of the railway.

When you reach the end of the parkland bear right over the small bridge which takes you across the roadway, and after another 400 yards bear right over the footbridge which takes you across the A737.

Continue to cycle along the cycle path which will take you out into the Scottish countryside and past the old disused railway station at Houston. The lane now becomes edged with trees as you cycle along.

Cycle another one and a half miles and you reach the small town of Bridge Of Weir.
Once you reach Bridge Of Weir continue along the cycle path through the town and onto the next small town of Kilmacom which is approximately 3 miles further along the path.

Follow the path past Kilmacom and continue along the path for another 2 miles where you will reach the outskirts of Bardrainney where the cycle path ends. Where it ends it meets with Millport Road. Cycle along Millport Road to the end then turn right along Montrose Ave. then left along AuchenbothieRoad.

At the end of the road turn right onto Dubbs Road and after a few yards you come to a roundabout, go straight across the roundabout along Kilmacom Road. This road runs into Clune Brae.

After approx 300 yards you reach another roundabout. Turn right onto Glasgow Road.

Follow Glasgow Road and as you cycle along you can find a suitable place to cross the railway line at one of its bridges and then you can enjoy the view across The Clyde at Port Glasgow. The end of your ride…
