Places on RtN 2017 will be allocated by ballot. Entry to the ballot can be made between 8-22 December 2016. The result will be communicated in early January. In addition, our charity partners will have places available for fundraisers.Priority in the ballot will be given to those who have done 2 (or more) previous events. Assuming there are remaining places, these will be drawn. Teams of up to 3 riders can be linked with the intention that they will be offered ‘all or nothing’. In the first instance, this will be applied only to those with two event completions.

There will be no transfer of places. If you are offered a place there will be a payment deadline (of the £135 registration fee) for the end of Feb and then there will be a no penalty cancellation period. This year there will be a waiting list if there are people who miss out on the draw – the waiting list will be drawn too!

It’s not a race, it’s a challenge for allits not a race
There has been a remarkable boom in cycling over recent years and the North East of Scotland boasts some truly wonderful cycling experiences. RIDE the NORTH is not a race, but rather a challenge ride for cyclists of all abilities.
RtN working with local charitiesrtn815__20160827_afh
Since 2011 Ride the North and participant cyclists have raised around £1.4m for local charities. We are delighted to be working with a number of charity partners in 2017 - all of whom support the communities in which the vent takes place.
