GLENTRESS. TWEED VALLEY

WHAT'S HAPPENING? WHERE AM I?

Mountain bike festivals should be based around a number of activities. Number one being mountain biking, obviously - but as far as everything else goes, it's fair game. We've devised a pretty wide ranging number of activities to keep you entertained after the riding stops. Expect:

  • Live DJ's and bands

  • Fully licensed bar

  • A wide range of carefully selected, street food vendors

  • Pumptrack

  • Coaching sessions

  • Soil Searching 'Dig Day'

  • Sports massage

 

CAMPSITE OPENS AT 14:00 ON THURSDAY

That's right, the campsite opens the day before the festival officially begins. Rock up on the Thursday, get settled in, go for a ride. Uplifts won't open until the Friday, but Glentress is right at your doorstep and Innerleithen is a 20-minute pedal away. 

Please note: the check-in/registration for the festival opens at 09:00 on Friday. Some facilities may not available until this time. 

UPLIFTS AND SHUTTLES

First uplift/shuttle opens at 09:30. Last uplift/shuttle at 16:00. More info on the destinations of the uplifts will be published soon. 

The majority of food and drink vendors will stay open until 22:00. Due to licensing laws, the bar will not serve alcoholic beverages until 12:00 (midday) and closes at 23:00. All vendors will accept card, but if you're more inclined to use cash, there are ATM's located in Peebles, which is just a 15-minute ride away. 

TEST BIKES

Test bikes/demo bikes will be available first-come, first-served from 09:00. Last test ride is 15:30, with a return time the latest of 16:30. We'd recommend heading to the Glentress trails to make the most of your time on the test bikes, but should you wish to head to Innerleithen, there's nothing stopping you!

EXTRAS

The event area will be open with an MC throughout the day. eMTB and non-eMTB guided rides will take place on Friday/Saturday/Sunday. Sports massages will be available from the sports massage tent throughout the day (times TBA). The pump track competition will start after the demo area closes on Saturday, and live music will commence later into the evening.

Please note: these are just rough timelines and are subject to change. In the weeks leading up to the event, the full schedule will be released.
