Mountain Biking in the Cairngorms
The Cairngorms offer so much more than just the high summits. Exploring the network of forest trails and rugged passes by mountain bike is an unforgettable experience. It's also a great option for days when strong winds on the tops make getting up high impossible.
Whilst there are a few sample guided mountain bike rides outlined below, we'll agree a bespoke plan before we set off which matches your aspirations, fitness and riding ability.
Pricing: £35 per person for a half day (minimum of two people). £60 per person for a full day (minimum of two people). Discounts available for larger groups.
Bike Hire: Bike hire is not included, although I can help you make arrangements with local bike shops.
