Ballater & Crathie Mountain Bike Festival

10 September, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 12 September, 2021 @ 11:00 pm BST

Mountain Biking

Ballater Business Association (BBA) & Ballater (Royal Deeside) Limited SC026254 (BRD), in conjunction with Ballater Films and the V&A Halls, are delighted to announce our 1st Mountain Bike Festival. It is our intention that this will become an annual event.

We are especially delighted to be the chosen Scottish venue for the premiere of  ‘The Big Bike Film Night’ at 7pm on Saturday 11th September at the Halls.

Our action-packed programme kicks off on Friday 10th September with ‘Bill & Ted Face the Music’ Film Night at the V&A Halls.

On Saturday 11th September, there are various activities provided by ‘Ride In Peace’, ‘E-Guides’ and ‘Live Life Aberdeenshire’.

On Sunday 12th September between 12:30pm and 1:30pm, don’t miss the final stage of the ‘Tour of Britain’ coming through Ballater.

And after all that exercise, we have plenty of options for being ‘fed and watered’. There is a wide range of cafés, restaurants, pubs, and hotels in the village and we will also have a number of takeaway stalls on the Church Green throughout the day, along with some of our artisan local food producers. When you’ve had your fill, take the time to explore our unique shops.

Further afield, to the east of Ballater, we have a baker, cheesemaker and café at Cambus O’May & a hotel at Dinnet. To the West, there is the well known Bakehouse and Ptarmigan café in Crathie.

Look out for posts of our ‘Trails’ of Food & Drink Offers, Retail outlets, and Mountain Bike Trails.

Thank you to North East Adventure Tourism (NEAT) and Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland for their support.
