EcurieNeep Mountain Bike Club
EcurieNeep Mountain Bike Club was formed in 1993, by a group of cyclists who enjoy off-road mountain biking. The membership has grown steadily in recent years, (about 60 or so in 2004 ). The club has changed direction in the last few years; racing is rare and the social side of mountain biking has become far more important. The members enjoy the buzz and 'crack' from riding with friends on a Sunday or Wednesday and from the not infrequent evenings in the bar. The Neeps welcome both male and female riders.

Gone, but not forgotten..
Not all clubs survive. Some go on for years where as others are short lived. Reasons vary - fashions change, sponsors invest elsewhere, the driving force in the club move away etc. Here are some of the Grampian clubs that are now consigned to memory:
 
C21 Multisport
This Aberdeen based road cycling club had an emphasis firmly on racing. Aberdeen Multisport was set up in 1993, and over the years the team has had several sponsors resulting in variations to the clubs name. This did not detract from their considerable success at local and national level. The team finally finished at the end of 2007.
 
GS Corsa
An Aberdeen club that embraced all forms of road cycling including leasure rides, time trials and road racing. Dwindling membership brought the club to an end at the close of 2008.
 
Tri Changing Gear
was a triathlon shop based in Inverurie that encouraged cyclists to purchase and compete in the Tri Changing Gear team kit. They organised evening cycle runs from the shop in the summer.
