So, what is Muck N'Mac?

The vision at Muck n' Mac is essentially our dream festival weekend. A mixture of bikes, music, outdoors and beer, in equal measure! 

It's as much about the challenging bike riding as it is, dancing to an array of live music at one of Scotland’s most stunning loch-side locations. 

It features two challenging days of gravel and road routes, with multiple Enduro style timed stages. In between stages, there's no clock running. You'll be able to truly appreciate the rolling hills of the Scottish Borders that lead to a festival village of live music, climbing walls, kids MTB coaching, Pump Track, yoga, educational talks and much much more...

Where does it start?

Both the Mucker and The Mackie start in Netherdale carpark in  Galashiels for stage 1. The second day rolls out from the festival village at St.Mary's Loch.

When?

The event will run from 3-5th of July, with riding starting on the 4th. See event schedule below for more details.

*leave no Trace*

We are so lucky to be able to stage Muck n' Mac Fest in one of the most stunning locations the country has to offer. The trails are glorious, the roads are epic. 

One of our driving forces is to operate an event format that is as environmentally friendly and sustainable as possibile.  When out on the trails and roads it is our policy to remember a few key points.

We are not the only users of these areas. Be cortious to the landowners and other users. Respect the privacy, safety and general working livelihoods of such people living and working in these areas. 

Leave the land as you see it. 

Many of our trails pass through farmed land. If you see a closed gate, you close it after yourself. 

Remember that the outdoors can never be made risk-free.  Please act with care at all times for both your own safety and that of others.

Absolutely no littering, under any circumstances.

MUCK N'MAC SPOTIFY PLAYLIST

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.
