How many guests:
Limited to 6 guests to keep it nice & exclusive.
Our exclusive base for the week is the Highland village of Braemar. It’s a very special place, so much so even the Queen spends her vacations here. And it’s no wonder why – you’ll sample incredible riding in the splendour of the Cairngorms, Angus Glens and Deeside. We guarantee you’ll be spoiled for choice in this secret mountain bikers paradise.
Skill Level: 3
You are a confident mountain biker and have been riding technical terrain for at least 2 years including exposed singletrack and rough landrover track, on uneven, loose and frequent steep gradients, with frequent variation in trail surfaces from rocks to roots. You are comfortable riding on trails approximately 12 inches wide that vary greatly in their stability and may be unpredictable including loose rock. You are comfortable regularly traversing unavoidable obstacles such as roots, rocks, logs and drop offs up to 15 inches tall, and some obstacles encountered may exceed that.
Fitness Level: 3
You are an avid mountain biker riding twice a week or more, and the weather isn’t a big factor for you. You are at an above-average fitness level, and regularly do other activities that qualify as exercise. You usually find yourself riding for 3 hours on the trails, you’ll ride on consecutive days, and you ride at a moderate pace.
We will be starting off our day with a gentle morning yoga flow/stretch. Don't be frightened off; this is an introduction to yoga & how it can help & benefit your everyday life & also improve your mountain biking - and more biking is always a good thing ;) It is beginner friendly, very gentle & relaxing to balance out our adrenalin fix we'll be getting from all the riding. This is NOT mandatory, so if you prefer a lie in in the mornings, that is totally allowed too. This is NOT bootcamp!
This trip is in collaboration with the rad duo of Aneela & Andy over at Go-Where Scotland, so all payments & bookings will be made directly through them. The price includes professional guiding, yoga classes, shuttles, bed & breakfast, on trail skills coaching if wanted & a never-ending amount of laughter & banter when hanging out with Aneela & Andy.
