Muckmedden Mountain Biking Event Perthshire April 2012
Mountain Bike event Pitmedden Forest Perthshire, Tayside Scotland 22nd April 2012
Scotland has a fantastic reputation for mountain biking and has been accredited the class of ‘Global Superstar’ by the International Mountain Biking Association (IMBA) thanks to the beautiful natural landscapes and investment in top quality built facilities. Mountain Biking in Scotland is big business and is already worth £139 million pounds to the Scottish economy with growth expected to be 30% over the next five years.
Slap bang in the middle of Scotland’s MTB destinations and on the doorstep of some truly epic riding is Pitmedden Forest. Straddling the Perthshire/Fife Border, near Newburgh it is one of Scotland’s hidden gems when it comes to natural trail riding and due to its location you’ll find more quality trails here than midges!
Whether you race hard or are less competitive, the day will be relaxed, with the focus on just having fun on the trails. There will be good music and top notch local caterers on site, and it is a family friendly event with free skills training for kids and adults alike. All of the companies that will be used at Muckmedden are from the local community, from skills coaches and bike repair to waste disposal.
