Scottish Mountain Bike Conference, 7th to 9th November 2024 - Tweed Valley. Save the Date!

This year the award winning, three day Conference returns to the Tweed Valley after a 10 year hiatus. Taking place at the MacDonald Cardrona Hotel between Peebles and Innerleithen, we think its the perfect venue to host this years event and we are looking forward to welcoming international and domestic delegates in November.


The Scottish Mountain Bike Conference is the second largest mountain bike conference in the world and we are excited to be able to share the venue and dates as we continue planning logistics and firming up our jam packed programme.

The conference will feature mountain bike leaders and experts from around the world alongside inspirational speakers, Scottish Government Ministers, global brands, exciting announcements, discussion and consultation on the sustainable future of Scottish mountain biking. Including an update on the UK Trails Project and the progress of the delivery of the Scottish MTB Strategy 2023 – 2025, highlighting the key actions which have helped increase tourism and economic development across Scotland.

With panel sessions, exhibitions, workshops, ride outs, practical sessions, great networking opportunities and more. And of course the Scottish Mountain Bike Awards on the Friday evening, it's an event not to miss.

Early bird tickets will be released next month with accommodation options, alongside details of how you can get involved as an event partner for this hotly anticipated event.
