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.
- Based in Torridon we might ride the Kenmore-Applecross route or the circuit of Being Damh and The Torridon Loop.
- 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.
- 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.
- Finally we have planned, ridden and developed introductory bikepacking weekends with our partners the SYHA and for more experienced riders a two day traverse from Eilean Donan Castle (‘The Highlander Castle’) through to near Loch Ness in conjunction with muchbetteradventures.
