Pass of Ryvoan Detailed Information

The Pass of Ryvoan is a long circular mountain bike route that runs between Glen More near Aviemore and Nethybridge. Climbing to 380m, the path passes through Caledonian pine woods with stunning views of Cairngorm Mountains and Abernethy Forest. Experienced bikers should be able to complete the entire journey but inexperienced cyclists or those on other types of bikes may need to walk in some sections.

The route can generally be done year round as long as it isn’t snow covered; waterproof clothing is advisable for wet weather while extra warm layers will help during winter months.
