While some of us are still eating turkey sandwiches, and packing away presents into the sock drawer, we at the Tartan Bicycle Company have been busy working on new bike tours and exciting new developments for 2015.

With consent, we’ve recently used some of our customers as guinea pigs to try out several new routes planned for launch in the New Year. These include, two new guided road bike tours in the Scottish Borders, a fantastic day tour around Loch Katrine with absolutely stunning views of the Highlands, and a new 22 mile tour around the city of Edinburgh. Feedback from these test tours has been very positive; we can’t wait to make them available to you in the New Year to try out for yourself.

As for our self guided tours, from April 2015 we will be providing every customer with a bike mounted Garmin Satellite Navigation System with a pre-programmed map of the route to follow. This is to help take the pressure off people, like me, who find map reading and riding a bike in a strange environment a bit challenging.

To top all this off, we have also made improvements to the structure of our website, making choosing one of our exciting new tours a whole lot easier.

We look forward to seeing you in 2015… Happy New Year!
