Belles & Buns part 2 (2021 September date TBC)
This sociable, non timed, women only road cycling event series will be back in 2020. Keep your eyes peeled on the Facebook page for details of part 1 in May, organised by Coupar Angus Cycling Hub and part 2 in Setptember organised by us.
This has got to be the most friendly and supportive event out there, there really is a 'no women left behind' attitude. (PS - the cakes are truly amazing too!)

Dunkeld Enduro 2021
Onwards and upwards....
Saturday 1st May 2021 is our planned enduro day! We are feeling confident (as are many other event planners) that we can safely bring you a good event in May. There will be some differences as you can imagine but we are confident the enduro setup is in a good place to adapt to what is required. Updates will be via our Facebook page.
Expect a Lite and Full course and hopefully (landowner agreeing) we will run a new trail :-)
Looking forward to seeing you all in the Spring!
Here's a reminder of the 2019 event....
The weather was pretty damp in the morning but everyone stuck it out and came prepared with waterproofs (although saw one rider in jeans!).
Stages 1 & 2 (Rake n Ruin and Pink Floyd) were pretty slick with a few crashes and some slower race times than we were looking at a few weeks ago in the dry dust. Stage 3 (Doug n Dan's) caught some people out with the slight rises, definitely a tough stage to ride well blind. Stage 4 (7 Stages) was the final stage for those in the Lite (and for a good number who signed up to the Full initially) and the longest stage of the day, stage 5 (Committed to Gravity hybrid) was where it stepped up in technical difficulty as a black grade trail but showed some surprisingly fast race time considering the conditions, stage 6 (The Mast/Rudder hybrid) was the last stage of the day and is always a firm favourite and the smiles this year showed us it is still continuing to be a well loved trail(s) although some of those smiles could have been relief the final stage was complete!

The BIG thanks to everyone who came along to race, support, chaperone young riders and spectate. It's always great to see everyone having fun on the trails we've put together! A HUGE thanks to everyone who helped out - all the marshals (some hiked up a fair few hills in record speed!), our 3 sweeper riders (extra 👏 to Rich who did registration and then swept the course), the supportive landowners Murthly & Strathbraan Estates, Forestry and Land Scotland, Perth & Kinross Council for the toilets, AGB for lending a 4x4, Rescue Medics for their exceptional service, SPORTident for the timing, Small Fry Cycles for the race photography, The Scottish Deli for the catering and last but not least Progression Bikes for everything!
And for anyone wanting to relive Stage 6, a wee video is here
See you all next year!
