Strathmore Cycle Network officially opens

 

Local schoolchildren have formally opened the first phase of a new £1.6million network of cycling and walking routes in eastern Perthshire.

The 2.5km (1.5 miles) first phase is a specially constructed path linking country lanes between Alyth and Rattray.

The new path is the first section of what will be known as the Strathmore Cycle Network, connecting Alyth, Blairgowrie/Rattray and Coupar Angus.  

The development trusts in the three towns set up a Steering Group to create the Strathmore Cycle Network, which has already raised more than £250,000 towards the total cost.
