Aboyne

The beautiful village of Aboyne, on the edge of the Cairngorms National Park, has always been a great place to start an adventure into the great outdoors. A varied network of single tracks twisting through the trees has rapidly developed in recent times, alongside the rise of Enduro. An area which was often bypassed by keen mountain bikers is now a hot spot in the Dee Valley.

Race Categories

This year we have 5 main categories with prizes provide by our fantastic sponsors:

  • Youths 9-15             Cycle Highlands
  • Junior Men 13-17    CRC
  • Men 18-39               20 Twenty Bike Clinic
  • Senior Men 40+      Bennachie Bike Bothy
  • Women                   Bike Remedy

Age and Number Limit

Anyone aged 13 or over on the date of the event will be able to take part in the full course of 5 stages. Anyone aged between 9-12 will be able to take part in a shortened course, which will be 4 stages omitting the most technically difficult stage. Youth riders under the age of 13 will be required to ride together in a group, guided by an appointed experienced adult Youth Group Leader, before racing each stage individually (see more below).  

We are have a rider limit of 250 participants so sign up soon to not miss out!

Youths

  • Each youth rider must have an adult chaperone (and be accompanied to the event by a parent/guardian, even if the latter is not riding).
  • The Rider Disclaimer must be signed by both the parent/guardian on behalf of the youth, as well as the chaperone.
  • The chaperone can only look after a maximum of two youth riders.
  • The chaperone will ride behind the youth participant and be available to take care of any issues with the youth eg bike problems, injuries or withdrawals for any reason.
  • The entire group (youth riders plus chaperone) will set off one hour before the main group and will ride a shorten course.
  • The group must ride each stage together (with usual separation between riders), once all have arrived a stage with any other riders waiting will have to give way to let youth group through and wait until they have all completed a stage.

Event village location

The event village will be based on Glen Tanar Estate land. We will use a trafficing system to get everyone parked in the event village on the day as it is up a single track road, it has plenty of parking for cars and vans. To get there drive to the Bridge of Ess, coordinates (57.0633331,-2.8178943) and you will be directed from there. It will be well signed on the day.

Event Timeline

Event will run from 08:00-16:00 on the Sunday, Registration between 08:00-10:00.

We shall send a detailed event timeline that we will try to stick to closer to the event but due to may factors we might not be able to keep to this.
