Cycling the Badger Divide trail

The Badger Divide is a spectacular off-road cycling route, starting from Inverness in the Scottish Highlands and heading south to Glasgow in Central Scotland (or vice versa). It is a challenging journey of some 200 miles and mostly on rough trails. There a plenty of hill climbs – some that are steep and tough – as well as lots of great downhills. The rewards of this ride include a superb and ever-changing landscape, stunning views and a huge sense of achievement on an iconic Scottish cycling route.
