Bike Glenlivet - Fantastic fun packed, flowing single track trails, spectacular scenery and stunning views in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park.
Blue and Red trails (with black grade features) with cafe, facilities and pump track.
There is also a network of natural XC trails
- Glenlivet Blue is a 9K blue grade route suitable for all the family but exciting to ride with its twists and turns and great flow. The Blue is 'swoopy', sort of like a bobsleigh run stroke roller coaster ride. But it is blue so no deliberate jumps on it, however, if you try hard and you know the trail there are jump opportunities to be had. It's pretty rad for a blue.
- Glenlivet Red is a 22K red grade route with black grade technical features to keep the expert mountain biker entertained all year long! GlenlivetRed climbs to the summit of Carn Daimh, offering breathtaking views of the Cairngorms before plunging into the Glenlivet descent; 6.5K of single track downhill packed with black grade features and jumps. the red is tight n twisty, described as sort of 'Welsh' in places (think narrow full bench cut on a steep sideslope).
- A 75 metre progressive pump track.
- A friendly welcome awaits at the BikeGlenlivet centre which has all the facilities to meet your needs
- The Coffee Still cafe is ready to refuel you after your ride with a selection of hot snacks and delicious home baking.
