Get some gravel in the glens.
We spend our spare time scouring well-worn OS map sheets for routes that get eyes widening, jaws dropping and hearts racing. Not ones to be selfish though, we love nothing more than sharing the spoils. As a result, our guided gravel rides in the Cairngorms National Park tap into a depth of local knowledge, routes to suit any taste and that all-important coffee shop beta...
Call it gravel, groad, all-road, or maybe just old-school mountain biking with dropbars added on. Whichever label you want to put on it, we live slap bang in the middle of the UK's largest national park, where the gravel trails go on forever. From our doorstep, we can ride old drove roads, forest tracks and woodsy singletrack, and trust us when we say we've been putting in the research to find the choicest routes... Someone has to do it! Gravel bikes are a firm favourite for the team because they let the miles go by so easily, but still take us to the quiet corners of the park that we find so enchanting. They're freedom on wheels, in other words, and sit in that 'Goldilocks' spot for allowing your legs to take you to new and inspiring places.
