An easy ride climbing to 127m from the northern outskirts of Aberdeen, with moderate gradients (maximum 8%).
The ride starts with an uphill section (average around 4% for 1.8Km) through the suburb of Bridge of Don. Once out of the city, there’s another nice climb averaging 3% for 1.5Km to the bridge over the city bypass, then it’s a rolling ride to the high point and downhill across the Aberdeen-Banff road and a steady climb with a couple of kicks in it up to Mason’s Croft. The ride goes on to meet the River Don, travelling parallel to the river and coming closest at Cothal, re-crossing the city bypass and crossing the Don north of Dyce. Back into the city for the rest of the ride, re-crossing the Don at Persley Bridge before the final run home.
