Cycling is a great way of combining exercise with the outdoors - both of which help to boost mental health. Whether you want to go cycling alone, as part of a group or with family, there are lots of different options around Caithness including forest tracks, country roads and coastlines.

Cycling UK is the UK’s cycling charity and now has a Highland branch. They encourage all types of cycling, on the road or off, and support you if you already ride, or would like to ride to work or school, for health, touring, sport and leisure – or just because it’s fun.
