    The Cairngorm National Park covers a huge area of Scotland and it offers some of the most stunning areas to ride a bike in the UK. During our trip you will have the opportunity to cycle the highest public roads in the UK with several other climbs thrown in for good measure.

    The Snow Roads Cycle Route

    The official Snow Roads scenic route is a 90-mile ride that traverses the highest public roads in the UK. It takes you through some of the most outstanding landscapes of the Cairngorm National Park. We have added to the route with a start in Pitlochry, adding an extra day to explore the climbs on the southern edge of the Cairngorms. Our route also takes in the climb up to the ski resort on the mountain of Cairngorm itself.
