About Skinny Tyres

    Skinny Tyres was established in the Spring of 2009 by business owner Scot Tares purely “for the love of cycling”.

    IMGP9578Scot was keen to set up a business that allowed other cyclists to experience the same passion that he has for cycling in the Scottish Highlands. Scot has been a keen amateur road cyclist for many years and has several years experience of organising and running open road races for British Cycling. He has raced throughout Scotland, both on and off road and taken part in numerous sportives. An enthusiastic, some would say obsessed, club cyclist Scot has brought this love of the sport to the business. Scot is also a British Cycling event organiser, British Cycling Level 2 Coach (with discipline-specific units in road, time-trial and mountain bike) and an Assistant Commissaire. He is also a qualified trail cycle leader.

    In the Summer of 2009 Skinny Tyres was recognised by Scottish Enterprise when they won the prestigious Tourism Innovation Fund Award, and were also shortlisted as a finalist in the Perthshire Chamber of Commerce Star Awards category for new business.

    Based in Highland Perthshire, Skinny Tyres was set up to give cyclists from across the world the opportunity to experience some of the best cycling roads in Europe. Our trips let you ride with like-minded individuals and have the luxury of all aspects of your trip being catered for, allowing you to concentrate on pushing those pedals. We are conscious that a lot of people new to the sport are keen to find as much out about cycling as possible and at Skinny Tyres, we are keen to create that friendly environment where you can ask all those questions and gain knowledge from our experienced guides.

    Skinny Tyres packages are all-inclusive providing fitness training, workshops, accommodation, meals, massage, entertainment and on-road cycling along some of the most spectacular routes in Scotland.  No part of your trip will be overlooked to ensure your needs are met, so all you need to do is ride. In addition, we can organise bespoke days, weekends and full weeks for individuals, corporate clients, cycling clubs, groups and families.
