Get ready for the 3rd Chapelton Bike Ride! The last two rides in 2016 and 2017 were such successes, and raised over £6,000 each for North East Sensory Services that we had to run it again and we're including the 5k charity walk again too.


Our cycle route will be broadly the same as 2017 and will start at Teacake on 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.

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

A Strava club has been set up for those who wish to practice or record and share their times on the day!

Both cycling routes are suitable for road bikes and there will be refreshments stops located periodically to help you re-fuel! Please note that the walk is not suitable for pushchairs and buggies.


Individual registration costs £15 for the 42 mile route per person or £5 per person for the 12 mile route. Team entry for 4 people is available at a reduced rate of £50 for the 42 mile route or £15 for a team for the 12 mile route and must be completed in advance. An additional charge of £5 will apply for any on-the-day registrations (and as a further incentive, all pre-registered riders will get a free T-shirt and goodie bag). Registration closes on 31st August.
