The 6th Annual Dunkeld Enduro!
In 2018 Highland Perthshire Cycling brings you…
The 6th annual Dunkeld Enduro!
(yes entries are now open!)
We can't believe we're now on to our 6th Dunkeld Enduro! So, first things first, a big thank you to everyone who has helped and ridden over the past 6 years!
Here are the details for 2018 and most importantly, how to enter - 6th annual Dunkeld Enduro mountain bike event takes place on the Saturday 28th April 2018 and will continue the trend of providing the best tracks in the Dunkeld area as well as introducing some new surprises. We have some great stage ideas up our sleeve but still need to work out the details (and/or build them!) so we can't release any hints just yet! The level of difficulty will remain the same (it's Dunkeld but it's designed with mere mortals not pros in mind).
Highland Perthshire Cycling's Event Organiser Kat Brown explains why she loves this event so much. “For me the Dunkeld Enduro is not just about a 1 day blind race, it's about developing an area, creating sport where it wasn't before and seeing how happy the trails make people. I'm lucky enough to see, and hear, riders whooping and hollering as they come down the Mast or the Rudder from my garden and to see the kids in my street rush around on their bikes excitedly talking about the trails. The Dunkeld Enduro gives our dedicated trail building crew a reason to make amazing trails and brings new life into the villages.”

Fair City Enduro Confirmed as Scotland’s Only Enduro World Series Qualifier
Muckmedden Events, organisers of “Muckin’ Good” mountain bike events, are delighted to announce that their Fair City Enduro mountain bike race will be an Enduro World Series (EWS) qualifier event in 2018. There are 50 official EWS Qualifiers spread across 25 countries and four continents in 2018 and Fair City Enduro is the only event staged in Scotland. The sixth annual fancy-dress mountain bike race, which will be held in the ‘Fair City’ of Perth, Scotland, on 27 October 2018, is now widely regarded as one of the top mountain bike Enduros in the UK, thanks to a mix of world class mountain biking and some truly outlandish outfits.
Enduro is the fastest growing discipline in mountain bike racing, currently attracting big budget factory racing teams and high-profile riders and generating a huge amount of media attention globally. It is testament to the growing reputation of Perthshire-based Muckmedden Events that Fair City Enduro was selected as one of an exclusive group of Qualifier Events for the 2019 Enduro World Series.
