Dinnet Ride Preview

This year the ride will be based at Muir of Dinnet.  Tracks will go through the Muir, up a track over the moor, down through forestry and along the old railway, the Deeside Way.  The Deeside Way can be very busy and riders must slow down to pass walkers and cyclists - as always, claims for time allowances will normally be granted if anyone looses a lot of time because of this.

Where routes cross the North Deeside Road, there will be marshalls who will let you know when it is safe to cross.
