We are so lucky to be based in the Highlands of Scotland with its’ stunning mountain terrain and huge open spaces which are just perfect for mountain biking. What you want to do will be discussed with your bike guide and we’ll then create an exciting itinerary for your trip. Some of our more accessible locations allow a morning to consolidate, practice and master essential skills before riding ‘on the hill’ in the afternoon.
A typical example is a couple of days guided biking with the scenery, technical demand and physical effort increasing each day to finish with a breathtaking ride in remote countryside only accessible by bike, or foot.
- If you choose to ride in The Cairngorms we can take advantage of the many kilometres of beautiful singletrack in the pine forests, then spend a morning working on technique on the Badaguish xc trails before heading over to ride the lower section of the Lairig Ghru.
- The bike guides at nineonesix-guiding have planned, ridden and developed introductory and advanced bikepacking weekends with our partners muchbetteradventures
- Based in Torridon we might ride the Kenmore-Applecross route or the circuit of Being Damh or of course the world famous The Torridon Loop.
- Other venues that we can guide include the remote Fisherfield Forest or deeper into The Cairngorms such as Glen Avon. We can also discuss, plan and design overseas biking trips for you with our friends Jaime at AwayFromTheCrowds in Spain or Lisa in Sweden with PepUp
Here are links to two very different bikepacking trips that we can guide you on, one is a demanding multi-day ride through some very remote terrain from Aberdeen to Kirkhill, near Inverness staying in hostels and bivvy and the other an incredibly varied round of The Moray Trail, starting in Grantown on Spey then riding to the Moray Coast before returning on The Dava Way the next day.
