Ride the North is a cycling challenge in the beautiful scenery of the Grampian Highlands in the North and North-East of Scotland. 2019 will be our 9th event.Our event is not a race nor a sportive, it a challenge ride which celebrates the love of cycling and the scenery in this part of Scotland. There will be a refreshment stations every 20-25 miles and we work in partnership with the local communities to ensure you are well looked after along the way. The route is always on the back-roads of North East Scotland, in the foothills of the Grampian Highlands (in Aberdeenshire and Moray). The route has changed a little each year, with the exact 2019 route will be posted about 2-3 weeks from the event, but you can expect in the region of 175 miles with a bit a mix of hills and some easier sections.
