Cycle race[edit]

The Strathconon Cycle ride happens every year on the first Saturday in May. This ride consists of a 19-mile ride from the top of Strathconon finishing in Marybank, a 38-mile "there and back" ride, and a 4 miler for younger kids. This event raises money for Marybank's Hall Committee.
