Heartbreak Ridge is one of Scotland’s iconic and most loved natural mountain bike routes. Leaving from Ballater on the eastern fringes of the Cairngorms, this 19km route starts with a steady 400m forest road climb out of the valley with stunning views out over Aberdeenshire to enjoy along the way. The tight singletrack and grippy granite descent from Pannanic Hill (601m) is full of interesting technical features and line choices to test even the most experienced riders. The exposed decent on the hillside is guaranteed to give a big mountain feel with stunning panoramic views that Scotland is known for. 

Please note this ride is only suitable for experienced MTB riders.

These MTB events are open to everyone, however, there are accommodation options available including Camping.
