There are many National Bodies whose work impacts on the north east of Scotland. Some are race orientated, some leasure orientated and some promote all types of cycling. Here is our list of the more prominent National Cycling Bodies.
For decades, local bike shops have been the lifeblood of cycling in the UK - you simply couldn't get a new bike, jersey or crankset without visiting one, and local bike shops were often the centre of the cycling community. But times change and now it might not seem like you need to support your local bike shop, because generally you'll be able to get absolutely everything you need cheaper when you go online. But what happens when that bike shop you occasionally visit shuts down because web stores have run them out of business? No more emergency inner tubes, and lots more abandoned rides when those inevitable punctures or mechanicals crop up. So we believe you should support your Local Bike Shop, and help it remain on the high street. Here is our directory of Grampian Bike Shops.
Bikes come in all sorts of sizes, and a variety of geometries. Add to that the options in stem length, crank length, saddle height and width. Unless your bike is made to measure, how do you know that you have the optimum position for the type of riding you want to do. A bike fit can help you to ride more confortably, avoid injury, make the most of your power output, and better tailor your position to your riding style. We have a list of Bike Fit providers based in Aberdeen, Aberdeenshire and Moray.
