The start / finish point will be the ‘Window to the Sea’ monument at the Bridge of Don end of Aberdeen Beach Front and we will be leaving at 8am sharp on Thursday 4th June.
There is plenty room for your friends / family to park a car if they’re dropping you off / picking you up. This is your chance to see some of the most amazing scenery around Scotland’s north east while achieving the most epic bikepacking adventure you’ve ever had.
Staying in any of the NE250’s locally owned accommodation options of your choice, you’ll ride around the NE250 route on gravel or by road as you desire and meet the rest of the party by the fire at the end of each day for a dram / beer / wine / Vimto for story sharing.
GCP will provide full route details for both Gravel and Road route options as well as suggested start times and target speeds so you can make the best of your experience at your own pace.
