A popular biking event through Aberdeenshire will return at the end of the month with special social distancing measures in place.
The Great Inverurie Bike Ride takes place on Sunday, September 27, with two route options of 13 and 25 miles open to all who want to take part.
The 25-mile journey will take cyclists from Kellands Park in Inverurie, to Chapel Of Garioch, then on to Bennachie, Pitfichie and Monymusk before returning to the start via Fetternear and Burnhervie.
Participants looking to take on the shorter 13-mile ride will cut off just after Chapel of Garioch and head down to Burnhervie, before a return to Inverurie.
A more challenging 54-mile journey is also on offer for experienced teams or individuals over the age of 16 through the hills around Donside and Bennachie.
It will go through Chapel of Garioch, before heading up to the Lord’s Throat to Keig, then up Suie hill, on to Brindie and back though the Lord’s Throat to join the remainder of the 25-mile route back to Inverurie.
Key changes to allow the event to take place include rolling starts, with spaced out time slots and a pre-entry only system.
There will be no spectators.
The event is led by Live Life Aberdeenshire, the organisation in charge of Aberdeenshire Council’s sports and cultural services.
