    Off-road routes

    Allean Forest, near Queen’s View.

    Mountain Biking at Wofltrax, Laggan

    Run with the pack at Laggan Wolftrax and enjoy nearly 35km of the most up-to-date, year-round singletrack available in the country.

    Set in the outstanding natural highland beauty of Strathmashie Forest, Wolftrax provides a green-graded beginners’ trail, the thrills of a big-and-bermy Bike Park, a fast red-graded route packed with features and a black-graded trail that’s possibly the most technical of its type in Scotland.

    For novices and young children, the 4.8km green trail, featuring real singletrack, is a perfect introduction to mountain biking.

    The Bike Park has 3.6km of trail.  Novices can trundle or freewheel from top to bottom, but more skilled riders will rip up this route and find ‘big air’ opportunities all the way down!  Not recommended for very young children.

    Designed to be fast and flowing, the 15km red route is a fantastic experience in two sections, enjoyably testing and rideable.

    The black route is 6.4km of tight, singletrack trail with multiple features!  Watch out for serious drop offs, boulder fields and rock slabs aplenty!

    Cycling Events
    Etape Caledonia,
    Britain’s first mass closed road cycle race.

    Etape Caledonia is Britain’s first closed road cycle race open to the general public. It offers the ordinary cyclists closed roads to cycle on in safety. We are all used to mass participation running races in the form of marathons and half marathons, but there has not been an equivalent for cyclists until now
