Did the North cost 500 with Kev. Not long to ridding and I have learned so much in seven days.

Had an amazing week riding the roads of the North Coast 500 with 42 Cycling. We went off the official route after John O'Groats which lead to some amazing scenery and roads that where quiet and great for cycling. Routes where well planned to pass some amazing scenery along the Scottish Highlands. Kev's enthusiasm and energy lead to some demanding and enjoyable group riding that tested the legs. Customer care was demonstrated with some late nights from Kevin spent ensuring bikes where serviceable and safe for the next days riding. Rider safety was a priority for 42 cycling and the ride was well balanced with the covid restrictions with health and wellbeing being next in line to rider safety. Anyone looking for either a demanding group ride or just a scenic tour around the Highlands should look no further than 42 Cycling. FTFT !

Wonderful 2 days riding around Loch Ness on the mountain bike. Kevin of 42 cycling did an amazing job from collecting us at the airport; arranging bikes and accommodation and very informative guiding around the Loch, with great knowledge of the trails and the area. Felt safe every way of the trip and would recommend him and 42 Cycling to anyone who wanted a hassle free and beautiful view of the Scottish highlands from the saddle. Thanks Kev - superstar!

A wonderful Mountain Bike experience that exceeded expectations. The scenery was simply breathtaking and the route taken provided plenty of interest. There was enough challenge, plenty of fun riding and virtually no riding on roads. Our guide had detailed knowledge of the trail and gave plenty of advice for what lay ahead, his technical expertise was needed and kept the bikes rolling smoothly which was very reassuring. There was a real sense of achievement at the end but above all a tremendous feeling of satisfaction and well being. Should be on every Mountain bikers bucket list
