Guided Biking

Guided Biking

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 three full days of 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.  Based on what you are after we might ride the Kenmore-Applecross route, the circuit of Being Damh and The Torridon Loop. 

Other venues that we can guide include the remote Fisherfield Forest, the trails to our south in Strathcarron and The Cairngorms.  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.

New for 2017 we are offering introductory bikepacking trips in The Cairngorms where you will have the chance to try out the excellent bike luggage produced by WildCat Gear.  Click on the link below to find out more, the first two clients to book on will receive a free WildCat Gear Tiger Seat system to carry their luggage with:
