The route will take place in the sublime and iconic scenery (as well as tough but rewarding hills) of the Grampian & Moray Region and the finalised route will be announced very soon but each day will see you ride between Castle Fraser to Elgin and then return on day two. Note this is a cycle challenge for everyone with different wave times across the two days to suit all but will require individuals to be able to cycle approx. 170 miles over two days. Don’t worry for some of the tougher hills a bit of walking as you take in the scenery is encouraged with numerous pit stops across the two days which will feature more home bakes, snacks and comfort opportunities.Ride the North celebrates the love of cycling and rather than a race is a truly fantastic cycle challenge with peers or alone!
Please note this is a cycle challenge for everyone regardless of age and ability.
