For more details on the Muckmedden Events 2016 schedule – see notes to editors or go to http://www.muckmedden.co.uk/

The 2016 events are aimed at both families and individuals who want to ride their bikes, with a wee bit of a competitive edge, whilst celebrating all things two wheeled.

Aaron Gray of Muckmedden Events, said:

“2015 has been such an amazing year for us, with so many riders trying our events for the first time and keen to come back for more. We strive to put on great family-friendly events rather than just a bike race and the extra touches such as spectator stages, kid’s races and undercover seating areas seem to be appreciated by the riders and their families.

“Everyone from toddlers to World Enduro riders have enjoyed our Muckin’ Good Events over the years and we can’t wait to welcome riders, spectators and enthusiastic supporters in 2016. But remember to book early to avoid disappointment as most of our 2015 events sold out fast!”

Muckmedden Events know how to put the fun into fat tyre events. The races are perfectly pitched for the novice rider yet every course has stages to test the more seasoned weekend warriors taking part. There are always lots of activities and attractions laid on at the events to keep spectators and enthusiastic supporters of all ages entertained.

Aaron added:

“The feedback from this year’s events has been outstanding and we’re delighted all the hard work has paid off, but with some great ideas bubbling away for next year’s events I’m confident 2016 will be even better!”
