Thanks to everyone who came along to the Carbon Social Cycle Club Deeside ride; a fantastic 55-mile route in mostly great weather.
The route took us initially along the Deeside valley from Aboyne to Balmoral. From Balmoral the climbing begun, over towards Donside via the Gairnshiel Bridge, to coffee and bacon rolls at Goodbrand & Ross at Corgarff. Then it was down the Donside valley on back lanes before climbing again towards Deeside, with a great descent back down via Tarland and finally Aboyne Castle.
Looking forward to next year already!
