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

THE 42 CYCLING APPROACH

Regardless of your cycling abilities, 42 Cycling can organise a cycling tour experience that suits you or your group. Cycling creates shared experiences from which supportive environments grow. These communities can be key to overcoming negative and oppressive feelings caused by stresses or traumatic events.

Our team remove the hassles by planning and organising unforgettable experiences while adding in; some beautiful scenery, exercise (for the positive endorphin releases) and fresh air!

Having done 25 years in the Army, I have seen some sights all over the world and cycling helps me to process these as well as any worries, relieving tension and stress buildup. I have had some of my best ideas whilst out cycling. Imagine that you have a pocket full of problems with a small hole at the bottom of your pocket. As you cycle you are slowly working through those problems and they one by one drop out of your pocket to be left by the wayside. By the time you get home you don't have any worries or problems left! You feel refreshed and are buzzing from the feel good hormones (endorphins) going off like fireworks in your brain and body. You go back to work the next day so much more confident and productive from giving yourself some mental respite. Its a no brainer, cycling is good for you.
