Cycling in Lewis and Harris



There have been some great TV programmes and videos of cycling in the Outer Hebrides but this one is interesting as it shows the new cycling Hub in Stornoway, road biking, mountain biking and the delights of the new trails in the castle grounds. there is something for everyone. The Hebridean Way is proving the most popular but you can miss out on many small coastal places if you just wizz down the island.

I would recommend the new cycling hub in Stornoway. I popped in and was impressed with the equipment in the shop. Good cafe as well. I spoke to the guy there on a previous visit and he is willing to come across to the house to repair bikes for cyclists. Cyclists are welcome at our house and we have storage facilities for bikes.  As there are so many historical place near to our house, not to mention beaches and art galleries,it could make a nice cycling trip and the longer routes are also righ on your doorstep. i am quite happy to help with info on cycle hire.I cycle myself and still have a lot of exploring to do in the islands. I have done the Hebridean Way long before it was classified as such. 3 weeks of sunshine absolutely brilliant  - but that was on our second attempt.
