Cycling on the Speyside Way - Enjoy the nature when biking

The Speyside Way between Fochabers and Ballindalloch and between Nethybridge and Aviemore is suitable for cycling. Between Boat of Garten and Aviemore, the route is shared with a section of the SUSTRANS millennium cycleway. The ‘off-road’ sections between Ballindalloch and Tomintoul, and between Ballindalloch and Cromdale cannot sustain cycle traffic, and we ask you to avoid them. Between Ballindalloch (Delnapot) and Cromdale, an alternative exists using the B9102. Cyclists are asked at all times to ensure that they use the route in a way which does not cause damage to the track surface, or cause inconvenience or danger to users on foot or horseback. See SOAC advice to cyclists.

What is mountain biking?

Mountain biking is the thoroughly enjoyable and highly addictive activity of cycling off-road on a bike designed to cope with rough trails, inclines, descents and obstacles.

Scotland has become one of the world's leading countries for mountain biking thanks to a wealth of custom-built mountain bike centres and many hundreds of miles of natural country trails. Speyside Way offers mountain/trail bike guiding along some of finest trails in the Eastern Cairngorms National Park.

Who is this for?

From youngsters to adults, mountain biking is a great way to see Scotland. Routes can be chosen according to ages and fitness levels. Whether you're a keen mountain biker who wants to be guided to new and more remote places or a beginner who wants to learn the basic skills for mountain biking, Speyside Way can offer a tailormade session for you.

For groups?

Mountain biking is ideal for school groups, families, birthday parties, stag and hen do's and corporate days out.
