Muckmedden have built a solid reputation for delivering fun, family-friendly mountain bike events ranging from multi-day festivals to Enduros.

How it all started

Aaron Gray (AKA Aaron “Muckmedden” or occasionally “Lord Muck”) worked in the flooring trade until 2015.  He now works as full-time Event Organiser for Muckmedden Events on Scotland’s east coast.

From an early age Aaron loved riding bikes and was obsessed with BMX when it first hit the UK.  When he left school, like many boys in their late teens, he discovered the joys of “adult life”, passed his driving test and didn’t really look at a bike again until his mid-twenties when he bought his first mountain bike.  This kept him reasonably amused until he decided to sell most of his material belongings and travel the world.

The comeback (Midlife crisis!)

After several “wilderness years” away from bikes he treated himself to a Trek Fuel EX8, a spur of the moment decision that has changed the course of his life forever. 

After entering some XC races for fun he became hooked on riding mountain bikes again and wondered what it would take to organise a race on his local trails in Pitmedden.  Aaron spent several months talking to Landowners and Councils and before he knew it he was organising a mountain bike event.

So Muckmedden was born and with some friends helped set up a website and create a logo to spread the “Muckin’” word about the new event.

Runaway success!

Muckmedden MTB Event was held in Pitmedden on April 22nd 2012 and was a runaway success, attracting 300 riders from across the UK. 

After the event Aaron reportedly said “I can honestly say I’ve never been so terrified in my life and swear I will never to do that again.”

Fast forward several years and Muckmedden have built a portfolio of successful, unique and spectacular mountain bike events ranging from multi-day cycling festivals to Enduros.  Muckmedden Events have helped Landowners and Local Authorities attract many new visitors and develop and promote their facilities.  Their reputation for delivering fun, professional events continues to grow.
