Next Meetup

Insch Extravaganza!!
An opportunity to explore somewhere different and I will be your guide 😊. I take no responsibility for anyone, I am not always able to guarantee my own safety on a bike!! 😆. But we will be on quiet B roads or even quieter unclassified roads. I will be on a mountain bike as it's the only one I have. The route and distance will be decided on the day depending on weather and what the general consensus is, but I guess it will range from 20 miles anywhere up to about 40 depending on stops. There are a couple of places we can stop for refreshments along the way but bring a drink and a snack of some sort. We will finish in the recently reopened Station Hotel which does great food at a reasonable price. Be aware if you are coming by train there are only 2 racks that take 2 bikes on the train. You can book a slot I believe, although I have never bothered before. Please have working lights on your bike although I do not plan to be cycling after dark. Obviously any waterproofs and extra layers to keep you dry and for warmth. The start time of 11:00 has been chosen to fit in with the 10:13 train from Aberdeen which gets into Insch at 10:46. Looking forward to it already 😃🚴🏼☕️🍰🍔🍷🍺🚝

What we're about

This is a group to explore the roads, tracks and paths of the shire. The trips are more about meeting people on social outings and NOT speed or fitness workouts. The routes will vary from road trips to cross country trips with a mix of terrain and surfaces using tarmac, farm roads, trails and footpaths. Participants should be prepared for muddy and bumpy patches.
Participants are responsible for their own road sense, health and safety , condition of their bike, be able to use the gears and should carry a basic toolkit enough to fix a puncture at least, although help and assistance of the group will be given....obviously.
