Great Inverurie Bike Ride cancelled due to road works

The Great Inverurie Bike Ride has been cancelled due to road works.

The event was due to be held for the 26th time on Sunday, but Aberdeenshire Council said it could not proceed due to safety issues.

Head of roads and landscape services, Philip McKay, said: "It is very unfortunate that this set of road works has collided with the annual Great Inverurie Bike Ride."

Anyone who has paid their entrance fee will be refunded.
