All inclusive guided bikepacking from the edge of the forests and the mountains of the Cairngorms National Park
Friday night, meet Jim, your guide who will welcome you and briefly discuss the plans for the weekend.
Saturday after breakfast walk along the High Street to meet the local shop owners where provisions will be collected for the weekend. Back to base to organise, share and pack the kit, personal belongings and provisions for the two day ride before a full briefing about what we to expect over the next two days, then rideawaybikepacking…
The first stop is not that far away where we will have coffee and a scone and collect a delicious sandwich. After this ride north on a variety of simple tracks and trails beside river, farmland, woodland and open moors. Continuing through and around the spectacular Dava Moor to a campsite with fire pits, toilets, showers and kitchen/dining area with a leave no trace theme. There, share the preparation and set up dinner to enjoy some time around the fire to get to know one another a bit better and talk about the ride. Tents for the evening come free of charge from Jim.
On Sunday morning enjoy freshly brewed coffee with breakfast before packing up and then riding south back to Grantown on Spey on an alternative route which will be chosen based on your experiences and enjoyment of Saturday. Back in Grantown on Spey to de-rig the bikes, pack everything away and reflect on our trip before perhaps spending another night in Grantown on Spey. This avoids a tiring journey home on Sunday night and the opportunity to explore the area a little more.
