When is this event?
We are excited to bring you the Glenlivet Enduro. Glenlivet is filled with a fantastic, flowing machine built single track, fresh-cut goodness and a world-class jump trail that will make you want to leap back onto your bike and do the whole thing again. Glenlivet offers fabulous views and scenery during your cycle around the route. There is also a café that offers delicious food and a warm seat at the end of your ride. Riders are timed in stages that are primarily downhill, with neutral transfer stages in between. Our event routes are around 25km long, with six timed single-track stages aimed to be rideable by reasonably competent mountain bikers.
Our one-day events have a fun and friendly atmosphere. They follow government and other relevant requirements to minimise COVID-19 related risks. We attract all levels of riders, from the seriously competitive to those just looking for a brilliant day in the hills in good company. We also have tasty food on offer, which will support various local charities providing the catering – so make sure to bring some change!
This year we have a record number of rider categories, with seven for our full route and another four for the ‘lite route’. The full route takes in six timed sections of the trails in the area. The ‘lite route’ omits the technically most demanding downhill parts. All categories have great prizes provided by our valued sponsors, all of whom are businesses based in North East Scotland, catering for all your biking needs.

Age and Race Capacity Limits
Entrants need to be a minimum of nine years old on the day of the event. Your entry category will be based on your age on the 1st January 2021, although eight-year-olds who have turned nine by the date of an event may enter it as a Youth (see below). Youth riders (and their chaperone) may, although are not required, ride together in a group, guided by our experienced, qualified Youth Group Leader – Chris Roper from Ride In Peace Adventures.
We have an overall rider limit of 250 participants. We are expecting a sell-out, so sign up soon to not miss out!
Each youth rider must have an adult chaperone.
The chaperone must accompany the youth to race registration
The chaperone can only look after a maximum of two youth riders.
The chaperone will ride behind the youth participant and be available to take care of any issues with the youth, e.g. bike problems, injuries or withdrawals.
Youth riders plus chaperones will set off half an hour before the main group.
