Working in the business of Scottish cycle tourism can be one of the most rewarding and occasionally frustrating ways to make a living. Sometimes, when you combine your biggest passion and hobby with the world of work, the lines between business and pleasure can become very blurred indeed.

Andy on a wintry research mission for a new bike trip

Everyone in business faces challenges, frustrations and highlights – more time spent doing admin, following up on enquiries – sweating every-last-detail of clients’s bike adventures in Scotland is the world we live in. It can mean less time poring over the maps or on the bike immersed in the hills and glens of Scotland and more time on Skype and crunching the numbers on Excel.

The tug of the Scottish mountains is often too strong to ignore though – a bright winter weather window opened up, the Macbook was closed and head-honcho Andy grabbed the chance to recce a piece of the wilderness jigsaw for a route and essential component in a new itinerary that has been building in his mind for a while.

Unfortunately, the ravages of winter had taken their toll and landslides meant the hoped for route was impassable for now. Nonetheless, it was two days well spent outside in the beautiful Scottish nature. We’ll be back in Spring to this magnificent glen to hopefully put the icing on the cake of another epic Scottish gravel / mountain bike adventure.
