Tourism Scotland - Cycling

Cycling in Scotland

Scotland offers cycling for all and cycling has to be
one of the best ways of seeing Scotland.

If you haven't been on a bike since you left school don't worry - there's plenty of room to practice and the mileage of cycle dedicated track is growing all the time.

If you are into cycling off-road and pushing yourself to the limit there's a great choice of forest trails and off-road tracks.

Scotland also has a huge network of quiet roads for cycle tourers and even specially designed courses for those who want to improve their mountain bike skills (or leave the kids - where you know they'll be safe but will have a good time).

You don't need your own bike - you can hire. You don't need to plan your route - there are a number of businesses who can do this for you. You don't even need to carry your own luggage - because we know 'a man who can'!

The clean air, the peaceful glens, the opportunity to wind down and take time to meet people, all makes cycling in Scotland a special experience.

Cycling Holidays

Why not discover the beauty of Scotland by bike? Scottish Youth Hostels Association offer a range of self-catering, fully guided cycling holidays. Their tours are offered at four levels to give you an indication of the degree of fitness or experience required. These classifications are of a general nature, and it must be remembered that strong head winds can affect the difficulty of any tour!
