50 Mile Route

This not for profit event organised by locals, retains the usual format of having 3 suggested routes and distances.  It is a fun event for riders of all abilities, so whether you want a social ride, to encourage the kids out of the house, or just want to beat your neighbour – there’s something for everyone.

You have a choice of routes: 10, 35 or 50 miles.  This year we have extended the original route to make sure the distances reflect reality.  Maps will be available soon and on the day. We do not have signage on the route so please make sure you have a map with you.

Riders should arrive ahead of their start time at Catterline School.  Sign in is required prior to departure and when you get back so that we can confirm everyone is back safely.

The aim is to have everyone finish between 13.00 and no later than 13.30.  The finish line is at Catterline Harbour where hot soup and refreshments will be provided (& brazier!).

Start times will be every half hour from 9.30 and your choice of time will depend on the distance you are riding and the speed of your group.  Slowest groups should leave first and fastest last.  Typically groups leave at 10.30 or 11.30 for the 35 mile route and 9.30 onwards for the 50 mile route.  People entering the family ride may wish to leave 2 hours or so. Refreshment and a free go on the tree swing will be available at East Mains of Barras, ½ way round the 10 mile family route.  Please make sure children are accompanied by an adult.

For riders who are keen on competing with their neighbours, you are welcome to add miles to the route providing you return no later than 13.30.  For this particular type of rider there will be prizes for distance and speed (you know who you are!).

Entry is £10 for adults, free for children under 16.   All money raised will go to Kincardine and Deeside Befriending, a charity which aims to reduce social isolation and loneliness in older people. 

Award ceremony at 14.00 with prizes donated by Bike Remedy, Stonehaven

Fibre Broadband for Catterline?

 

Fibre Optic Broadband

I've heard a rumour that recent work at the Catterline exchange is the installation a new fibre optic connection. This is understood to be going live in the next couple of months, bringing super fast fibre optic broadband to Catterline. However, we wll still need to wait for more local cabinets to be installed before this will reach out houses. This is more likely to happen more quickly in cases where several neighbours collectively expressed a desire to upgrade.
