Cream o’ the Croft festival

Billed as Scotland’s family friendly mountain bike festival, Cream o’ the Croft takes place at Comrie Croft, near Comrie.

The focus is mountain biking, plus a host of other activities on the side.

On Saturday, the main event is a mountain bike Enduro that features nine timed stages, including a “Jump and Pump” stage, blue, red and black-graded descents, and a hill climb. The fastest male and female across all stages will be crowned the “Cream o’ the Croft”.

For younger riders, there’s a Mini Enduro for those aged six to 13 on the Sunday, as well as Toddler Balance Bike and Pedal Bike races.

Non-competitive riders will also have a role to play in keeping the action going with two pedal-powered features, including the main sound system. The Scottish premiere of the new mountain biking film Not2Bad will also be screened in a pedal-powered cinema on the Friday night.
