Sunshine, Smiles and Goodies!
What a fantastic day for nearly 200 bikers who completed the 2013 Aden Bike Challenge on Sunday June 2nd. With no rain and the sun shining all day, there was a great atmosphere at Aden Country Park as the bikers reached the end of their 10 mile cycle and received a rapturous welcome back at the finish line.
Every rider received a well-deserved medal and fantastic goody bag and there was lots to see and do at the park including the amazing GetAbout Bike Road Show. It was brilliant to see so many young people and families taking part and there were lots of smiley faces that can be seen at this link to the event photographs: http://www.flickr.com/photos/chss_fundraising/ and the Aden Country Park Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/pages/Aden-Country-Park/399672043382638 and the Aden Flickr page: http://www.flickr.com/photos/adencountrypark/
As well as having a great day in the bonny Buchan outdoors, the riders also managed to raise nearly £2500 for the event charity Chest Heart & Stroke Scotland – a brilliant amount!
The event organisers are very grateful indeed to everyone who took part in the ride and not forgetting the wonderful team of volunteers who marshalled the route and looked after the registration, start and finish areas ensuring everyone had a safe and enjoyable day – we couldn’t manage with you! Sincere thanks also go to Aberdeenshire Council, Aden Country Park, Watermill Coaches, Marshall Logistics, Peterhead Community Centre, Nestrans, Getabout, Adventure Aberdeen, Buchan Development Partnership and everyone who supported the event.
Details of next year’s event will be highlighted here soon so please keep an eye on the website!
