2 Day Ride Around Grampian Highlands
This is a supported ride, with mechanical support, support vehicles, signposting, lunches, mobile coffee stops, refreshments, luggage transfer and of course all the encouragement you will need. All this, along with an event cycling jersey is included in the fee. Details of the 2018 event to be posted here soon.
It’s not a race, it’s a challenge for all
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 charities
Since 2011 Ride the North and participant cyclists have raised around £1.6m for local charities. We are delighted to be working with a number of charity partners in 2018 - all of whom support the communities in which the event takes place. More details will be posted soon.
