Get ready for the 4th Chapelton Bike Ride! The last three rides have been huge successes raising over £22,000 for North East Sensory Services.

Our cycle  routes will be broadly the same as 2018 and will start at Hume Square in Chapelton and offer cyclists a choice of a 42 mile route or a 12 mile route. The 5km walk through the grounds of Elsick house is also great option for those who prefer something a little easier! All followed by live music, stalls and a great day out with Compère Michael Macdermid from Northsound 1.

Route maps

Routes are available through Strava who provide a free downloadable app for iOS and Android phones and smart watches.
