Scottish bike show: World Class mountain biking

It’s just over a month to go until the Scottish Bike Show on 16th-17th April and I am quite excited about this event. I am a roadie primarily, and I sometimes forget that Scotland is world famous thanks to a UCI Mountain Bike event being held annually at Nevis Range. It’s not surprising that mountain biking features heavily at the show.

The multi-award winning Fort William Mountain Bike World Cup will be bringing its action and atmosphere into the heart of The Scottish Bike Show with The Fort William World Cup Screen. As well as a continuous showcase of some of the best mountain bike action from the past 9 years, the screen will also feature the BSD BMX displays live. The World Cup team will also be on hand to talk about the Best Mountain Bike Event in the World!

The area is also a growing trail centre in its own right. Nevis Bike School will be running guiding and coaching sessisons plus new training camps with Dirt School in 2011, and Alpine bikes will be at Nevis Range this summer providing bike hire. Dirt School– the mountain bike skills coaching company- are also exhibiting, as are Alpine Bikes, who will have a large stand, hopefully with plenty of bling on show.

Other mountain bike exhibitors include:
Moredirt– a guide to mountain bike trails and routes worldwide
Singletrack mountain bike magazine
International Mountain Bike magazine
