We can provide a guide to accompany you on your ride, show you all the best bits of riding, sights and scenery. This takes the pressure off any navigating, and we are here to help with a puncture or mechanical issue. So whether you are staying in Dunkeld and Birnam, Pitlochry, Blairgowrie, Aberfeldy or Perth, we can provide trips either local to you, or from our base here Dunkeld, Perthshire.
If you want to develop your skills we have coaches for all abilities and levels. A coached ride is a great way to see the countryside but to tackle elements that you may normally ride round or push over. By stopping and practising on these sections, you develop your riding skill and confidence. It is also suitable for the whole family with a variety of ’line choices’ on many of the routes. So if granny wants to stick to the main path, we can lead or direct the boys over the rooty sections, providing tips or coaching advice as we go. This can also be run as a half day or full day trip, ideal if you are up for the weekend, the week or are organising a birthday party or other activity.
If your kids are still learning to ride a bike, or would like some extra help, we can provide some tuition in a safe environment, allowing you to go for a shop, visit the cathedral or just have a quiet coffee round the corner.
FAMILY AND BEGINNERS
If you are already a keen mtb rider, have a bit of experience under your belt, or are looking for a challenge then we can offer a variety of routes and trails around Highland Perthshire.
Guided mtb trips around beautiful Highland Perthshire are available for advanced groups. Come and check out our tracks and trails hidden in some of the most secret corners of Scotland. Cherry pick the best bits and routes for a full-on adrenalin packed mountain biking day. There are some short hour long blasts, or full day epics and everything in between. We would recommend a 3-4 hour ride that takes in some of the local hills, climbs and descents.
Check out our Routes and Rides section for Strava Rides, route advice and more.
With the Enduro in 2013 putting Dunkeld, Perthshire and the Tay Valley on the map, it is about time that more riders started coming to the area. There are over 8 red/black descents within a 30 minute cycle of Dunkeld, making Progression Bikes a natural base for a days biking. We would recommend a guide to take you on all the best routes, as even with an O.S map, you will struggle to link up the sections. Best ridden on full suspension bikes, there are plenty of sections to test even the most competent cyclist. There are a growing number of Strava routes too for those that like some added competition in their ride, or just head out with friends and see what you find.
Progression Bikes staff are always happy to share route advice and local knowledge with anyone that comes in, so stop in for some spares, repairs and a chat
