Ride In Peace Adventures

Sponsor Male Youth (9-12) & Junior Female (13-17)

Since it was established in summer of 2017, RIPA has developed to offer a wide range of coaching and guiding for riders of all ages and abilities. Recently we've been developing an exciting new bike hub, with short trails and a whole load of fun features, at the Deeside Activity Park in Dess. This unique facility allows us to provide some of the best mountain bike coaching around, honing your skills on purpose built features and we can offer "Little RIPA" kids sessions and 1:1 or group coaching for all ages, including ladies and girls only sessions, led by our female coach and guide, Kirsten. We also provide coaching, guiding & riding across Aberdeenshire's incredible a selection of guided rides ranging from “Introduction to Aberdeenshire Tours” to “Big Mountain Adventures” as well as the local Enduro Hotspot Tours at locations used by the Aberdeenshire Enduro Series. Please get in contact for your private race preview, skills coaching or little RIPA kids session. Let us help you find flow and speed on your ride.

Ride in Peace Adventures has supported DTB since its very first event. RIPA has supported us in various ways including trail maintenance, race previews, race starter duties and acted as the youth marshal ever since. As its business has successfully developed, RIPA has become a premium AES sponsor, which it is proud to continue with for a third year, covering the Male Youth (9-12) & Junior Female (13-17) categories. When asked why he was continuing to sponsor the Aberdeen Enduro Series, owner Chris said "We’re all about helping riders develop their skill control, confidence and consistency. We see backing these younger categories as a fantastic support for the next generation, helping them take their riding to the next level, providing a great opportunity for 'little RIPAs' to progress to racing 'RIPAs'!"
