FAIR CITY ENDURO

26th October 2019 | Lesser South Inch, Perth, Scotland, PH28BW

“A Spectacular Event!” – Wideopenmag

Listed in Red Bull’s ‘Top 10 Must Do UK MTB Events’, Fair City Enduro is no ordinary bike race.  This Halloween themed Mountain Bike extravaganza always has the jaws dropping and the eyes popping with a mixture of amazing trails, spectacular views and hilarious fancy dress.  Where’s Wally?  He’s pulling a sick whip in the Bike Park and Scooby Doo’s chasing him down…….obvs.

This ridiculously flamboyant event is now regarded as one of the UK’s premier Enduros and being based in the centre of Perth, one of Scotland’s most stunning small cities, means easy access to hotels, shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs, cinemas and all the other trappings of a city break, with some top-class mountain biking thrown in.

Fair City Enduro is ridden blind and although it’s not crazy tough compared to some events, it should not to be underestimated, this is an Enduro World Series Qualifier and some of the stages can be pretty spicy, especially if it’s wet.  Having said all that, the whole ethos of the event is about having fun and each stage has been chosen to give regular riders a challenge and let the Pros get wild, so you can expect to ride everything from steep, gnarly chutes to manicured bike park jumps and berms.

After you, Goldilocks and the three bears have spent the day shredding with Enduro’s top dawgs, you return to the event village for the prize raffle and some hearty food, head back to your hotel room, grab a shower and hit the city for a night out.  Perth is packed with restaurants, bars, cinemas and clubs so no matter what tickles your fancy, you’re covered.

Happy Halloween Muckers!
