|The Scotland Trail Route Companion Pack
Scotland Coast-to-Coast is the ride of a lifetime. An epic
experience, the stuff of fantasy - taking on the rugged wrath
of Britainís most remote mountain ranges.
Itís all here, between these covers, and youíll not regret the
day you set out to realise one of this sportís most exhilarating
dreams. Imposing as the Highlands are the riding is not as radical
as many a newcomer to the Grampians might expect.
OK, it's a big country and there are some big climbs out there
- for example Britain's highest pass, the renowned Corrieyairack,
one. But then majestic vistas and long, long descents more
than compensate - check out the photo of Mnt Keen above. And
it's not all track riding either. There are some sections
tease out the trial skills of the most ardent off-road fanatic.
Plus there are plenty of Ďeasyí, optional detours and a moderately
fit cyclist can tackle this route with confidence, enjoy the
scenery and keen mountain air. There's even a 'lite', 4-day
version starting from Fort William.
