Cycling in and around Portlethen is a healthy and enjoyable way of experiencing the area. You will not only see spectacular scenery, but will also have the opportunity to explore places of historical interest.

Our town has excellent links for cycling to both Aberdeen and Stonehaven, alongside routes to various villages such as Findon and Downies that are connected by a coastal path, providing great clifftop views.

For those who want to experience more of a challenge, hills and mountains are just an hour or two away by car to the West, providing great opportunities for mountain biking.

For a multi-day adventure, the Deeside Trail is a good place to start and begins in Banchory. With fun trails and remarkable surroundings, you will make your way through the Deeside delights.
