Date Confirmed – 26th September 2021 – Book Now
A family Friendly, non competitive, cycling event in the heart of the Cairngorms National Park
For well over 20 years the Kingussie Bikeathon has been a favourite in the calendar for people from near and far.
CycleFriendlyKingussie took on the organisation of the event in 2017 from the founding organisers who, for 2 decades, had raised 100’s of thousands of pounds for charity and hosted 1,000’s upon 1,000’s of participants. Indeed many parents who complete the Bikeathon today did so with their parents.
For the past 3 years (with a Covid Break) we have worked with and to raise funds for Kingussie High School.
The event generally takes place in June though this year we have delayed it to the 26th September when we very much hope to run it as close to normal as possible. The signed and marshalled route will take us out to Kincraig and on to Aviemore, through the ancient pines of Rothiemurchus and back via Loch Insh and Ruthven Barracks. There will be the usual fun, entertainment and refreshments provided along the way. How you ride it, or what you ride it on (we have seen ebikes, penny farthings, tandems and trailers for the very young) is entirely up to you, race round or take you time, enjoy the spectacular views, entertainment and a bit of banter with your fellow riders. Registration will be at Kingussie High School where we will have our mass start and end at the Duke of Gordon with refreshments and entertainment in the sun.
We hope you can join us, book your place below – we fully anticipate running this event. However, if regulations at the time do not allow us to do so full refunds will be given.
Riders of all ages are welcome to this family friendly event.
