Cyclefest 2013 enters its third year and will once again be one of the main attractions at the annual celebration of all things cycling at the Grampian Transport Museum in Alford, Aberdeenshire. 

 

Raced entirely on a closed circuit, Cyclefest is aimed at developing youth cycling and is open to A-E categories.  Supported by live race commentary the Cyclefest provides riders with a warm up area, toilet facilities and a full programme of racing.  For parents, the covered grandstand provides a fantastic vantage point to watch the racing along with the opportunity to visit the other cycling related events that will be ongoing at the Grampian Transport Museum.

 

Racing starts at 1100 and finishes at 1430 with a stirring musical soundtrack and podium presentations throughout the afternoon's schedule.  This is the fifth year that Ythan CC will have promoted events at GTM with the previous Cyclefests and the Grampian Grand Prix events having been hugely popular with some of Scotland’s best youth riders having taken to the track.

 

Special attractions on the day are being finalised and will be updated in due course along with the race schedule but riders of all ages will take part in two races, Stage 1 and Stage 2 as part of their day with the event culminating with the final stage “A” Race which is proudly sponsored by Aberdeenshire Sports Council, supporters of all forms of sport across Aberdeenshire.  Ythan CC are also delighted announce that Team GB Paralympic pilot and Ythan CC member Fiona Duncan will be in attendance to meet the youth riders and pass on her experiences from London 2012.  

 

Head up to the heart of Aberdeenshire and visit Alford, a charming rural Donside town located 30 minutes from Aberdeen and a short distance from Royal Deeside and the Cairngorms National Park.

A Race

Posted 01/05/2013

Hi everyone,

 

Great response and 54 riders now entered.  Due to the track type and our knowledge of what keeps everyone safe the limit for the A race has been set at 20 riders.

We are now at 18 and on reaching 20 I will not be accepting any more A entries.  The other categories are filling up but I will update if I have to put a limit on those.

Thanks

Malcolm

Ythan CC are delighted to announce a new partnership with their ADCA colleagues at Granite City RT and the combination of Cyclefest with the Scottish National Mens and Ladies Road Race Championships which will be located on a course near Alford.

Youth riders will have the prestigious opportunity to take part in a parade lap to set off both championship races as well the chance to see the exciting climax of both races on a closed road finish near the Grampian Transport Museum.

 

The event timings have changed as a result of the new partnership with the first youth races starting just after 11am with sign on open from 10am.  The youth races will finish at 2.30pm allowing riders plenty of time to make the short walk to see who is crowned Scotlan's new road champions.

 

We can also confirm that as a result of the support of Aberdeenshire Sports Council each of the five category winners, A-E, will be awarded a Gold Winners Jersey emblazoned with the event sponsors logos.  Gold, Silver and Bronze medals will also be awarded to the first three in each category.

 

It has been tremendous to see entries coming in from across Scotland, especially from Edinburgh and the central belt but keep them coming in as this is a chance to be part of one of Scotland's biggest cycling weekends.

 

Cyclefest 2013 is now on Twitter.

 

The Scottish National Road Race Championships are now open for entry  as well via online entry at British Cycling.
