    Alles wat wij doen en verkopen is fietsvakantie-gerelateerd.

  • Fietsen maakt het hoofd leeg en het hart open

    Even niet presteren. Beginnen, en de rest komt vanzelf op je af.

Cicerone: Cycle Touring in Northern Scotland - 1000 km

Mooier is het het haast nergens dan in Noord-Schotland. Vanuit Inverness beschrijft deze gids zo'n 1000km aan route, met ruimte, mooie mensen en prachtige landschappen. Never in a hurry.

Guidebook to a 528 mile circular cycle tour around northern Scotland, starting and finishing in Inverness. The route follows quiet main roads and minor country roads, and is easily accessed and well provisioned. It can be comfortably completed within a fortnight and boasts stunning scenery and rich historical interest.

This guidebook describes a 528-mile cycling route in northern Scotland. Starting and finishing in the highland capital Inverness, the circular route passes through the ancient counties and districts of Wester Ross, Sutherland, Caithness, Easter Ross and the Black Isle and is suitable for mountain, touring and road bikes: the going is entirely on asphalt-surfaced roads, though many are quiet with little traffic. The circuit can be comfortably completed in a fortnight.

Featuring clear and concise route description, together with 1:150,000 mapping, gradient profiles, suggested schedules and invaluable practical information - including complete lists of all hostel/bunkhouse accommodation, official campsites and services for cyclists and advice on other accommodation and refreshment opportunities, this guidebook provides all the information needed to plan and execute a terrific cycle tour. Alternative routes are provided in case you should wish to avoid the steep ascent of Bealach na Bà or the undulating Assynt peninsula, or to include the busier A9 east coast road.

The route boasts stunning scenery and rich historical interest and cyclists will be treated to mile upon mile of unspoilt wilderness. The journey takes in varied landscapes of craggy mountains, verdant glens, rolling peat moorland dotted with lochs and wild rugged coastlines - and if the scenery isn't enough, there are many distilleries and micro-breweries on or near the route guaranteed to entice. With notes on history, geology, wildlife and local points of interest, the guide offers a perfect way to get to know Scotland's captivating far north.
