Ride Leader: Roy Milne
We will be riding the entire length of the famous Deeside Way from Aberdeen to Ballater and onwards to a camping location in Glen Muick, we'll be riding back the same route the next day. Starting at Duthie Park in Aberdeen, the group will join the Deeside Railway Line from the most easterly point and head west. We aim to average around 15-20kph and will regroup at each of the planned stops for everyone to regroup and get some refreshements. This would be a great Club Ride for beginner / intermediate ability riders.
