108671Photo #108671Cycle parking at the Falkirk Wheel North Car Park. It is hard to imagine why anyone would park a bike here, some distance from the actual Falkirk Wheel and its visitors' centre, unless the canal towpath was extremely busy.

Road access to this location is via the A803/A883 roundabout, and a look at Google Streetview shows the shared-use footway ending at the roundabout rather than continuing anywhere useful. There is also some cycle parking at the Park'n'Ride car park adjacent to the roundabout.
