Team Ecosse Northboats Cycling Club is an inclusive, fun and approachable club offering various rides and activities to cater for a wide range of abilities.
Established in 2014, we have been supported by boatbuilder and repairer, Northboats, and are a very sociable group affiliated to Scottish Cycling and based in Inverurie. We are primarily interested in providing a friendly and easy going environment in which to cycle, whether you are completely new to the sport or a seasoned veteran!
We would love to have you along to ride with us so please do get in touch, especially if you find it daunting joining a new group. All our riders are approachable, welcoming and safety conscious creating a relaxed atmosphere to cycle.
We are delighted to be able to provide youth (under 18) coached sessions by British Cycling registered club coaches. This will enable children to come along and develop their bike skills whether for fun or to compete.
TEN Youths are a growing part of our club with so much enjoyment and enthusiasm in all the kids!
REGULAR GROUP RIDES
Our bread and butter, from short evening rides to long one-off day trips, we have rides to suit all types of rider. Experienced or beginner, young or not so young, you would be very welcome to come along and join us.
All our membership is managed via our club portal so it is very straightforward to join. There is extra information available on this portal too and you can sign-up to find out all the membership options and other events available.

All our memberships are valid until the 31st of March and are in categories such as adults, juniors and family. As a guide the following are our yearly prices:
Senior (18+) - £20

We also have a non-riding membership for anyone wantingo to support the club, come along to our events and socialise with the riders.
Membership is subject to our Terms & Conditions and all our members adhere to the club constitution both of which can be found below.
To help our riders remain as safe as possible, we consider SPACE in all we do.
I.C.E. - In Case of Emergency
Along with our commitment to safe cycling and our SPACE campaign, we have developed a template for an ICE card which can be printed out and filled in with personalised emergency information. The card is designed to be small and compact so that it will easily fit alongside a phone, in a jersey pocket or other easily accessible location. Many apps and smartphones have this capability and while this would be encouraged, there is always the possibility of a phone being damaged in an accident or running out of battery.
All our members are encouraged to take emergency information with them and if nothing else, this is a useful backup to carry with you just in case the unexpected happens.
