One of Scotland’s leading mountain bike holiday providers – H&I Adventures – are doing some of the more exciting-looking and challenging ‘all-mountain’ holidays in the UK. So if your passion is for all-mountain all-day riding and you’re looking for your next challenge, their coast-to-coast should be on your shortlist.
This is an eight-day mountain bike trip that takes in some of the best off-road riding Scotland has to offer, through some of the most wild, dramatic and diverse landscapes in the UK. You’ll start in the far north east in the Highland coastal town of Bonar Bridge, and complete your ‘all-mountain’ coast-to-coast adventure in the stunning fishing village of Applecross, where you can enjoy views out to the Isle of Skye to the west. During this all-mountain extravaganza you will ride nearly 300km, descend a mouth-watering 7500m, experience the best trails in Torridon, Gairloch, Ullapool and Applecross and even get a ride across a Highland sea loch on a high speed RIB.
Your efforts will be rewarded each evening in the comfort of hand-picked 3- or 4-star B&B accommodation where you’ll no doubt receive a warm Highland welcome and enjoy the local food, beer and, of course, sample the whisky.
If you like the sound of this trip and think you can take on the challenge of an ‘all-mountain’ coast-to-coast mountain bike holiday in Scotland, then they have places available on their 3 – 10th September holiday.
