Experience The Outdoors

You are spoilt for choice in Aberdeenshire – which backdrop will you choose to cycle in? The coastal beach in Fraserburgh, riverside paths in Ellon, rolling countryside surrounding Mintlaw, or the busy fishing harbour of Peterhead?


An electric bicycle is a bike fitted with an electric motor and a battery, giving you assistance as you pedal. This means you can cycle uphill as if it were flat, or cycle further distances before getting tired.


They are straightforward to use with step through frames making them easy to mount, and up to 135 miles on a single charge.


Cycling can reduce the risk of serious illness, help you maintain a healthy weight and boost your mental wellbeing.


The Formartine & Buchan Way provides off-road cycling for the majority of the route, so it is a great place to build your confidence in a traffic-free setting.
