Methlick Cycle Challenge

Test your endurance with our 69 mile cycle challenge on road, old train lines and forestry tracks including the Formatine & Buchan Way. Or the 42 mile or 23 mile route may be more appealing.

"Probably the best gravel bike challenge in Methlick"

2021 Cycle Challenge is going ahead!

We are following guidance from Scottish Cycling and the Scottish Government. We plan to implement the following measures which should protect the safety of members of the local community, participants and organisers: -

• Mandatory NHS registered lateral flow testing for all competitors & organisers.

• Wave type starting to maintain cycling group distancing, currently 50 persons.

• Adherence to social distancing requirements pre and post cycle.

Clearly if there are changes to the advice from the Scottish Government and Scottish Cycling we may need to change these plans to suit. If our proposed event gives you any areas of concern which are not addressed by our planning please contact us as via the Facebook page or email: info@methlickcyclechallenge.co.uk


Raising Funds For Local Organisations

We have updated our routes, all routes will still start and finish in Methlick but with small changes. You can look forward to cycling through various terrain showing off some of our fantastic scenery. 


As the terrain is both on and offroad we recommend the use of gravel bikes/mountain bikes/cyclocross bikes or anything that can cope with some rough roads and cycle paths.
