Where is the best bike routes in the Cairngorms?… what a choice!

Biking in the Cairngorms is a must-try. From in and around Aviemore to rural routes throughout the Cairngorm National Park. 

What a view!


Is there routes and trails for all ages and abilities?

Yes, and due to the great local service providers,no need to even bring your own bikes, lots of places to hire, even delivered to your lodge. An easy and one of the best local Aviemore trails is Section 8 of the Speyside Way to Boat of Garten.An easy grade section for all, 6 miles of fantastic scenery between the steam railway line and River Spey. Have walked and cycled this trail many times at different times of the year and always new sights and sounds. More importantly, a trail for all the family. Why not cycle one way and take the Strathspey Railway back!
