Cream o’ the Croft – Mountain Biking Festival

Scotland’s only dedicated mountain biking festival is being held at the award-winning Comrie Croft Trail Centre in Perthshire. The main event of the weekend is a MTB championship, consisting of several challenging rounds, with the overall winner claiming the title of ‘The Cream o’ the Croft’. There’s also a ‘Funduro’ – an 8-stage mashup enduro – in the words of the organisers! There will be eight timed stages, with classes from teens to veterans, and 200 places available, it should attract a great crowd. In addition to the mountain biking activities, the family-friendly camping weekend will also feature live music, locally sourced food and drink, a craft fair and many more activities to suit everyone.
