We're based at Comrie Croft between Crieff and Comrie in Perthshire, where we are developing a mountain biking trail centre with Comrie Croft Bikes. It all started with some hand-cut trails and there is a Blue XC Trail and a Red XC trail, with sections that are technical and possibly a bit harder than other reds in Scotland, and a downhill Black XC section from the top of the Red which is very techy. But now we have a Bike Park, a superb new downhill Blue free-ride Trail and newly opened this year (2015) an extension of the Red Trail in the upper wood! 16kms of fab trails at the croft - plus all the other great natural trails to be found in the Strathearn valley.
Visit our Facebook site for updates on rides, events and general biking chat. Have a question then it's a good place to get it answered by one of the enthusiastic members.
Strathearn Mountain Biking Club welcomes riders of all ages and abilities
We're a relatively new club but have a thriving Junior section that competes regularly in the SXC, in October each year we help organise and run the Hairy Coo Mtb Race with Comrie Croft now becoming established as a great 'old school' race(!) have hosted a round of the SXC and Scottish Cycling's Mini downhill and have 40 keen members who range from relative beginners, families with small kids, XC whippets to freestyle jumpers.
