Cycling the Spey

I linked up some minor roads and sections of the Speyside Way from Inshriach to Spey Bay on the Moray coast.

I could have used more off road routes, particularly in the first few miles, but the sections I did use made sense in terms of following a direct and logical line down the river valley.

Start 9.50am from Inshriach
Aberlour 12.50pm
Arrive Fochabers Co-op 2pm
Left Fochabers Co-op 2.08pm
Arrive Spey Bay 2.32pm

Total Time: 3hrs 42mins Distance on bike computer 62 miles (Wind assisted)

Pit stops:

There is an excellent deli in Aberlour called The Spey Larder which sells pies, sandwiches and lots of other great grub. Not open Sundays.

The Co-op in Fochabers is open 7 days a week.
