Here at Ticket to Ride, we’re passionate about the Scottish Highlands and believe that the best way to explore these sublime landscapes is by bike. While we don’t offer accommodation holidays, we can rent you a great bike and offer you all the advice you’ll ever need to experience the best of Scotland.
The beauties of travelling by bike are endless; avoiding traffic, breathing in the cold fresh air, not to mention the wellness elements. But one of the best parts about travelling by bike is undoubtedly the freedom it grants you. Instead of waiting for public transport or getting behind the wheel, cycling allows you to take yourself where and when your heart desires.
By using your own intuition to explore Scotland at a slower pace, you will leave your cycling holiday feeling refreshed and reset, ready to take on the challenges of everyday life. Slow travel is something that has been spoken about quite a bit in recent years. So often do we spend our breaks from work trying to cram in as many experiences as we possibly can without stopping to truly appreciate our surroundings.
To ensure you get the most out of your cycling holiday, here are just a few of the ways you can slow the pace, save your energy and make memories to last a lifetime.
Enjoy the journey
If there’s one thing we cyclists know how to do, it’s enjoying the journey. Cycling isn’t the quickest mode of transport, but that’s the great thing about it. We actively choose cycling because not only does it allow us to invest in our planet, but it allows us to take in the beauty of the world around us. It allows us to engage with the terrain, the smells, the nature and the (sometimes unpredictable) Scottish weather.
Tip: If you do need to use a vehicle for you and your bike, public transport can save you a whole lot of money, and it’s much more sustainable.
Book eco-friendly accommodation
When cycling through the Scottish Highlands, it might seem like you are surrounded by only nature and sublime landscapes, but you’ll be surprised at what you can find hidden in these wee corners. If you do not have any plans in place for your accommodation just yet, why don’t you check out some eco-friendly accommodation? Helping make your trip to Scotland a sustainable one, from transport to accommodation.
Just because you’ve chosen a cycling holiday doesn’t mean you have to cycle all the time. Sometimes, it’s good to just take a day our two out to chill out and put your feet up.
