So, what is Muck n' Mac?

Day 3.jpeg

Muck n' Mac Fest is a unique gravel riding  festival weekend - all staged at  Traquair House in the  heart of the Tweed Valley. We're excited to get the ball rolling for what's going to be an extremely exciting year for cycling in the Valley with the 2023 UCI Cycling World Championships taking place in August. 

The festival features two fantastic days of Gravel  riding across some of the most epic gravel trails and roads the country has to offer. 

Both days riding start and finish at the festival Village at Traquair House and each feature multiple Enduro-style timed stages. Once you've completed the ride, you'll be treated to an array of live music from Friday through to Sunday. 

 We've carefully selected a line up of artists to keep you entertained all weekend. We appreciate that riding isn't for everyone. With this in mind, we have a range of activies geared toward familes. Alongside the live music  expect to see various activities such as Yoga classes,  introductory bike sessions for kids and adults, camping and much more!

As we mentioned earlier the festival is as much about the music as it is the bike riding...

To give you a wee insight into the sort of music to expect. We've spent time carefully selecting some tunes into a playlist which you'll hear ringing around our festival village and sign-on areas and even some live on stage.
