1.Easy Roll to the Beach

This route will be around 40-5o Kilometers depending on weather, our guide will make the best decision for your group.
3. Steam Trains and Ospreys
Will you spot the Steam Train on route or will you make it along the trail to the Osprey Centre? This is a great ride for those who have ‘been there, done that’ around Rothiemurchus and Glenmore. We will take the Speyside Way which is wide & smooth and suitable for younger cyclists into Boat of Garten, then you and our guide will make a choice of whether you continue to Loch Garten Osprey Centre or ride back along Route 7. This route ranges from 12 Kilometers to 30 Kilometers depending on your fitness and the agreed route.
