About the Event
An exciting big day out in the north east to challange your riding and hiking skills taking you from the North Sea to Scotland's most easterly Munro - Mount Keen.
You will depart from Aberdeen's brand new dolphin viewing centre, cafe, education and community space at the silver city's Torry Battery on the cliffs of the North Sea and head along the world-famous Deeside Way to the gateway to the Cairngorms at Glen Taner estate.
We will see you at our lower control point near Glen Tanar car park where refreshements and a bike mechanic will be on hand to keep you rolling up the double-track path the our upper controll point near the summit of Mount Keen. Ditch the bike with our Event Marshalls and yomp to the top and collect your unique event souvenier before descending one of the most scenic descents all the way back to Greyhope Bay.
We will hear all about your epic challenging day out when you cross the finish line at Greyhope Bay just in time for some finishers refreshements and entertainment.
