Highland Scramble Special FAQ’s
CAN WE PUT THINGS IN THE SUPPORT VAN?
Yes - the support vehicle is available for extra luggage, tools and to pickup any breakdowns and can provide some emergency fuel just incase.
DOES THE TICKET PRICE INCLUDE FOOD AND DRINKS?
Food and soft drinks for breakfast and supper are included in the ticket price. You will need to cover your lunch costs.
WHAT HAPPENS IF I NEED TO CANCEL MY PLACE?
If something crops up and you are no longer able to scramble with us, as long as we know 90 days before the event, we’ll process a full refund, minus the deposit. If you need to cancel within 90 days of the event, we will refund 50% of the total, if we can sell your ticket then we will refund the ticket price you paid. Deposits are nonrefundable after 30 days.
IS THE RIDE HARD GOING AND WILL THERE BE SOME PROPER SCRAMBLING?
The route is designed with variety and some roads will be more challenging than others. The ultimate goal is to go at your own pace and enjoy the beautiful scenes along the way. You may feel you want to push out of the comfort zone but we encourage you to ride to a level you feel safe and comfortable with. There is no off-road riding on The Special.
HOW MANY HOURS/MILES WILL WE BE RIDING EACH DAY?
We aim to Scramble for around 180-250 miles per day, depending on the type of roads we take. The smaller, twisty ‘B’ roads, we allow more time for and then the bigger ‘A’ roads are better for a bit of twist grip and road rip! We anticipate each leg of the journey should be about 5-6 hours of riding, with breaks in between. Evening meals are aimed to be served around 7.30pm.
CAN WE TAKE PHOTOS AND VIDEOS?
Please do and shout from the roof tops! Each ride will be allocated a unique hashtag for sharing and following.
CAN WE JUST TURN UP ON THE DAY AND BE FULLY INVOLVED?
Unfortunately no, we can only offer accommodation, food and support to those who have paid in full for the tickets in advance. Come and join us for a scramble, a tea and some craic if you’re passing though!
WHAT HAPPENS IF THE WEATHER IS ROUGH?
The Highland Scramble Special although luxurious, is not designed for the faint hearted. If weather conditions are abysmal then we will hold tight for a prolonged pitstop, however, we are not ‘the sunshine only’ club. Weather conditions that pose safety issues to our riders will be taken into account but the bottom line is, please come fully prepared and hope for the best!
WHAT HAPPENS IF I GET LOST OR SEPERATED FROM THE GROUP?
Everyone participating will be at different levels of riding, we appreciate that. If you wish to go ahead or take your time, the route will be shared with you on a group chat. We will also send you the route in advance for you to study. The support vehicle is only a phone call away so don’t panic.
MY BIKE IS GREAT, BUT IS NOT RELIABLE, IF I BREAK DOWN, CAN YOU HELP?
Our support vehicle will be there to help along the way. We are equipped with tools and knowledge and can assist with a roadside repair or help pop the bike in the back. We can take you to the final destination of the day or a local garage / check-in somewhere, the choice is yours.
ARE THERE ANY EXTRA COSTS?
You are responsible for paying for your own fuel and any additional refreshments along the way. You will also need to pay for your lunches as well. The rest is sorted by your bikerbnb hosts and team. Extra activities like the distillery and boat ride on Skye are included in the price. There may be additional changes for flying.
ARE THE TICKET PRICES THE SAME FOR TWO PEOPLE ON ONE BIKE?
If you are bringing a pillion that is a partner and sharing the same accommodation / bed, we can offer special pricing. Please let us know so we can accommodate your needs.
I DON’T OWN A BIKE AT THE MOMENT, CAN I RENT ONE FROM BIKERBNB?
Yes, of course, we are now offering Triumph Street Scramblers for rental as long as you have maintained a full license for the past two years . Please speak to a member of the team for more info.
