Regular Bike Rides in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray

Where do you start with regular rides in Grampian? All the local cycle clubs and groups organise regular rides, as do a few of the local shops.

Cycle Clubs and Groups

Most clubs and groups have a weekend ride, however the bigger the club the more rides they are likely to put on. For example, the Deeside Thistle have more than a dozen rides every week - some at the weekend, some mid week. So if you are looking for a regular ride to join in with, then check out our page on local Cycling Clubs. Hooking up with a club or group is a sure way of getting out regularly.

Local Bike Shops

Traditionally, local bike shops have either led rides, or been the meeting place for rides. This tradition is still alive with some of the shops locally e.g. Bennachie Bike Bothy. So if you are not a club type of person, but still want to ride with others then have a look at our list of local bike shops, give them a call and see what they offer.

 
Below we have only listed a couple of the regular rides that are on offer locally. We have picked these ones as they offer more of a "way in" to cycling and wont be as daunting for the new comer to two wheels.

Our list is not exhaustive - if you know of any other regular rides in the Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire or Moray area that visitors to the Cycle Grampian website may be interested in then please let us know. Contact details are on the link at the bottom of the page.
