Scotland? Yes - on your bike!

TORONTO, April 8 /CNW/ - If you're full of energy and like exploring, come to Scotland this year! There's a whole year of exciting activities and energetic events every month, offering endless opportunities for adventure. From snowboarding and ice climbing in the mountains to river bugging in Perthshire's rushing rapids; skiing in the Cairngorms to mountain biking in the Highlands, there's something guaranteed to get your blood pumping!

In honor of National Tartan Day (April 6), celebrating Canadians of Scottish descent, Ciclismo Classico is offering a $200 discount per person on their brand new Bike Across Scotland tour package. What better way to see Scotland's breathtaking scenery than riding along its beautiful seaside coasts and lochs, through its verdant hills, dramatic munros and bucolic villages? There are two options for eight-day rides, departing from Inverness in the Highlands on June 18 or August 6 and covering 250 miles before ending in the coastal village of Gairloch.

Why book now? This sizable discount is a Scotland Week special, ONLY available for bookings made between April 1-30.

  • Eight-days of cycling June 18-25, 2011 or August 6-13
  • Accommodations at three- and four-star country inns
