Beechwood Manse, Glenkindie, by Alford, Alford, AB33 8SH

Based on the eastern edge of the Cairngorms National Park, thirty miles inland from Aberdeen, RIPA offers mountain bike coaching at their local trail centres and guided rides in the glens, hills and mountains beyond.


RIPA is all about riding in peace and beauty of the hills. Guiding and coaching the skills needed to provide the experience that comes from riding with confidence, and peace of mind that accompanies a highly experienced guide.


RIPA will customize the ride for you. Rides that are easy to get to, but still little known.


Whether travelling from the North, South or West, there's so much to choose from. Turn off the sat-nav to the same trails and instead follow the old military road from Perth to Braemar and on down Royal Deeside. Avoid the uphill slog and get more from your day at Glenshee or the Lecht. Meet at Braemar or Tomintoul and let them take you on a tour of the some of Scotland's classic Munros - Ben Avon, Beinn a'Bhuird or Ben Macdui. Or join them in Ballater, kickoff point for Lochnagar and Loch Muick and the eastern ranges.


RIPA will help people master their biking skills with confidence and style.


Pick from a list of trail centres from Glenshee to the Lecht, from Tarland to Kirkhill or further afield to Glenlivet. RIPA even have a few secret trails of their own.


Ride with RIPA, RIPA wants to share the peace with you.'
