Once again this year Pitlochry has cycling fever following last week’s annual Marie Curie Etape Caledonia race, which starts and finishes in our lovely town. It was fantastic to see sport and charity come together in what was a great day out for townspeople, tourists and cyclists alike.
If you want to get on two wheels and make the most of beautiful Pitlochry and the surrounding Scottish landscapes, there are several ways to do so.
Pitlochry is at the centre of a Scottish Cycling network, making it the perfect resting point for a highlands cycling weekend. There are a number of cycling routes to suit a variety of levels, taking in different sceneries from the Cairngorm Park and Loch Tummel to Aviemore and Kinross. Visit the Cycling Scotland website to plan your route.

If your preference is something a bit more adrenaline-fuelled, there are also plenty of options for mountain biking. For the more experienced navigators there are plenty of off-road routes available, such a stunning route by Ben Vrackie or Edradynate Loop, by Farragon Hill. If it’s a purpose-built route you’re looking for, there are also exciting options like the Killichangie route by Logierait.
Cycle hire is available from a number of local providers including:
