Aboyne Bike Park is in the Bellwood Community Woodland just an hour from Aberdeen. It consists of a couple of short downhill runs, a Jump track and a pump track. 

It launched in May 2013 and is open all hours and free to ride.

DH Tracks (Red and Black)

  • There are two short downhill tracks: The Side Winder (red) and the Rattle Snake (graded black).

The Side Winder (Red)

  • Steep and tough single track with technical sections and a challenging descent with berms and small drop offs. 

Rattle Snake (Black)

  • A greater challenge and continuous rocky difficulty. Expect large and unavoidable technical features that require commitment. 

Jumps Area (Orange)

  • Known as the Spitting Cobra this consists of earth mound jumps of varying sizes, individually graded. 

Pump Track (Green)

  • The Cycle Highlands Python pump track is graded green. An area for all standards and ages of riders. Use only your momentum to get through the berms and rollers - the less you can pedal, the more you're showing your skills. 

Other Stuff

  • It is managed by Aboyne Bike Park Association which is volunteer led as well as Mid Deeside Limited who own the bike park and associated woodland on behalf of the community. 
  • The project was part-financed by the Scottish Government and the European Community Rural Aberdeenshire LEADER 2007-2013 programme and Aberdeenshire Council

Cracking wee bike park to spend the day, great fun riding black line onto the jumps, its a great place for developing core skills and later on some more advanced skills, you even get a wee warm up cycling down from the village. If you have not been to a bike/jump park before this is a perfect place to begin your journey into the world of jumps and flow.

Not really any bad points would just like longer black and red lines to take .

All trails in site of picnic benches - great to have kids there.
Great medium jumps for developing jumping ability.
Small pump track to keep the little kids happy.

A nice cycle in to make it a longer ride.
