BIKING, WILDLIFE AND WINTER ON THE HILLS

Great day for biking
It was a lovely Spring like day in the glens around the Cairngorms. Great day for biking. We cycled the classic Ryvoan Pass to Nethy Bridge then over to Loch Garten and back along the Speyside Way to Aviemore. Lots of great wildlife along the way and no shortage of cafes for stops on this route. Still wintery up on the hills and there was a chilly breeze today. Still plenty of winter conditions if you want to extend your season. Looking a bit wet and windy for Monadhliath tomorrow.
