Try Cycling

Easy-paced rides aimed at beginners or those who have not been in the saddle for a while

The rides, organized by the “CTC Grampian”, member of Cycling UK, visit various places of interest such as ancient cairns, march stones, churches, bird hides, and local beauty spots. All cyclists are welcome, but they are aimed at beginners and those who have not been in the saddle for a while.

  • Experienced cycle leaders on all rides
  • Families welcome (but see important note below)
  • Start at 10.00 am, with a cafe stop on the ride, returning before lunch.

The rides are on Saturdays or Sundays, the meeting point varying between Duthie Park (at the pond off Riverside Drive), Hazelhead Park (Groats Road Car Park entrance) and Seaton Park (at the car park on Don St.). Details can be found by looking for the “Try Cycling” entries for the relevant month on the Runs List page of the CTC website.
