Cycling

There are bike trails and walks

There are bike trails and walks around Forres.

Forres to Findhorn – you can now cycle between the two on the new cycle path, The path is at the side of the main road so while it is not the most scenic it does make it much safer, if you fancy a nice long ride along the beach try cycling from Findhorn to Burghead which is about 10 miles down the coast, tide permitting   http://www.forresweb.net/cycling

Moray Monster Trails – work as three independent sites, but they are linked link to each other, so for those with a truly monster appetite and stamina to match, try all three sites end to end, from Fochabers to Craigellachie. www.forestry.gov.uk/forestry/INFD-6MRFE5
