Alasdair Cain aka Cube
Place to Play – Road biking in Perthshire, loads of permutations in this varied and scenic landscape.
Not a lot of people know this – Once upon a time I used to go to work in a suit.
Mini Bio – Based in Kingussie, a small village in the Scottish Highlands, I have been called Cube far longer than my ‘normal’ name. I have worked and climbed as a mountain guide for the last 30 years in various capacities in many parts of the world including here in the local Cairngorm Mountains.
In my spare time I have also explored Scotland in my sea kayak and on a tandem bicycle with my partner Shona. In the last 10 years I have become a passionate road biker and having recently written a guide to road biking in Scotland I have discovered parts of my country that I never knew existed.

We can’t cheer loud enough for our guides. Knowledgeable, accommodating, pleasant, funny, flexible, supportive. We learned about history, had great fun riding, and felt listened to at all times. Bravo bravo bravoKelly Rubin
Our guides were great and added a lot to the trip. They were experienced, insightful and knowledgable about the geography and history of the area. And best of all they were just fun people to hang out with.Colby Van Vooren
One specific- I liked that they took turns riding and driving the van so that we got to spend time with both guides during the ride.
Both excellent with vast and complimentary range of knowledge.Victor Johnston
Have got me hooked on cycling,cleats and a cycle camp in Mallorca next Spring,wonder if I'll still be singing Cube's praises slogging up 'lumpy' Mallorcan terrain?
From the moment we met up with the guides at the start of the trip to when we were dropped off at the end, we had a very relaxing time and knew that everything had and would be taken care off..... even my marmite request for breakfast was answered!!Mark Hynes
We very much enjoyed hearing about the wildlife and geographical points of interest along the way too. Both guides were very encouraging and it was lovely to be complimented at the end of each day that we had done well!
Alasdair and Henry were excellent, Alasdair guided us on the bikes ensuring that we were well informed about the landscape and local history whilst keeping us safe.
