The route is mainly on quiet country roads and dedicated tarmac and hard core cycle paths with some woodland and stony farm tracks just before Strathyre (about 1⁄2 mile in length), and on the new cycle path between St Fillans and Dalchonzie (about 1 mile in length). Riders with dedicated road bikes may wish to walk through them or, in the case of the St Fillans to Dalchonzie cycle path, take the A85. There is no viable alternative to the Strathyre section.
