Muckin’ good news for two wheeled Early Birds

Muckmedden, organisers of fun-packed, family-friendly mountain bike events, have announced that they will be offering discounts of up to 30% on all race and festival entries until Tuesday 01 March 2016.

 Aaron Gray of Muckmedden said:

“It’s always a fine balance between offering high quality events and keeping the entry fees as low as possible and I feel we’re managing it again this year.

“2016 looks set to be another great season with some really exciting new ideas in the making and some great new sponsors on board. As always our entrants can expect great facilities, amazing trails and the super-friendly vibe our events are well-known for.”

Early Bird tickets to Cream o’ the Croft ‘Scotland’s Mountain Bike Festival’ are currently available and were due to end on 31 January but that deadline has now been extended to 01 March in line with all Muckmedden’s 2016 events.

Discounted tickets to Forfar Funduro, which will now be held on Saturday 17 September to accommodate the Scottish XC Mountain Bike Championships at Angus Cycling Festival, will go on sale on 01 February, along with Fair City Enduro and Falkirk Funduro.

The special Early Bird offers are only available until 01 March when standard prices will resume and organisers are urging riders to make the most of the price drop.

Aaron added:

“In addition to the discounted race entries we are also offering 33% off the new Muckmedden race jerseys which we’ve just had custom designed in Scotland by Ride It Clothing. As well as looking slick, they are top notch quality with neat touches such as internal goggle wipe, pit vents and zipped pockets. I can’t wait to see them out on the trails at our events!”
