• Cycling in Orkney's west mainland

Cycling

Pedal power is the ideal way to explore Orkney, with mile upon mile of quiet roads and not too many big hills.

Granted, the wind can sometimes be a challenge, but at some point, it’s going to be behind you! Whether road racer, tourer or mountain biker, there’s something for all in Orkney, with an enthusiastic local cycling club scene here too. You can also hire bikes in Kirkwall and Stromness, and pick up any spares and gear you might need for your two wheeled islands adventure.
