An evening to celebrate the progression, development and sheer good fun of being involved in the Scottish mountain bike scene. The awards will profile a range of achievements from our world class riders to our key grassroots volunteers to our most innovative businesses.

Last year  the inaugural Scottish Mountain Bike Awards, hosted at Developing Mountain Biking in Scotland’s biennial conference in Aviemore, attracted over 150 attendees who clapped, cheered and heckled their way through a great evening. 

Following the success of the event we are delighted to announce that the 2017 awards will be held in Glasgow on Thursday 16th November at the Drygate Brewery. The event will include a hot fork buffet, followed by an awards presentation. Join us to celebrate the depth and breadth of mountain biking in Scotland – including awards for participation and development, business and academia, and mountain bike tourism.
Book your place at the awards – £25 + VAT & booking fee per person.

Glasgow, in the heart of Scotland, is the ideal location for the 2017 awards, with excellent transportation links and reasonably priced accommodation we hope that the city will have something to suit everyone.

This year we will have 15 categories and we are really excited to see the wide variety of applications in each category.
