The Route

Ride the North is a cycling challenge in the beautiful scenery of the Grampian Highlands in the North and North-East of Scotland.
The 2021 will be published here soon.  New for 2021, there will be three route options of 180k, 140k and 100k. 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 20-30km and we work in partnership with the local communities to ensure you are well looked after along the way.  As always, the route will be on the back-roads of North East Scotland, in the foothills of the Grampian Highlands in Aberdeenshire and Moray.  It's a beautiful part of the world, home to a number of the UK's highest mountains so the terrain is challenging in places! The 2021 event will begin and end in Huntly on 24 July 2021. Hopefully!
