Entries for all events will be through the British Cycling Events System enter here

Entries will be confirmed shortly after the closing date, riders will only be accepted for one race.

 

Corporate Race

As part of the programme we are delighted to be able to run the Corporate race. The format of this will be a relay race for teams of four, at least one member of which should be female. Each rider will complete two laps of the course.

The person who enters the team will receive all details and communication about the event and they will be responsible for ensuring this is passed on to the other team members.

Given the popularity of this event, entry will be by ballot, it is unlikely that two teams from the same organisation will get a start. Entry for this event closes two weeks before the race. This will allow the organisers to notify the entrants well in advance.

Enquiries

Please direct all queries about the event to the organiser: martin.harris@scottishcycling.org.uk

Scottish Cycling are looking forward to a great afternoons racing, working in partnership with: Aberdeen City Council, The Tour Series and Scottish Cycling North East Grampian.
