Hugely popular and successful in 2018, 2019 & 2021, the Dukes Weekender Cycling Festival is returning to Aberfoyle for it's 4th year! The Dukes Weekender ventures into the mountains and forests of the beautiful and iconic Loch Lomond & Trossachs National Park, with some extra twists and turns up a Gravel Hill Climb in the beautiful forest, but with a festival atmosphere. Included during the weekend there will be a shorter Dukes Kids Mini Enduro for families and children on the Saturday morning.

Dukes Kid's Mini Enduro: Must be 8+ on the date of the race. Riders will be allocated a category based on age on the day separated by 2 yearly intervals. Riders aged 14 are also eligible to ride in this event if more appropriate. It is down to the child and their parent's/guardian's discretion to agree which event would be most suitable.
The Adaptive Recumbent category is a new category to encourage adapted cycle riders to get involved. We have always said any off road bike is suitable for the amazing trails of Gravelfoyle and we stand by this. As this is the first year we have opened to this category, we will be offering just an open category, hence the reduced entry price. We will be requesting feedback from riders as a way to build an even better and inclusive route for our next events. We encourage adaptive cycle riders to bring an accompanying rider if required for health reasons (free of charge, although of course they can enter the event too if they wish to be timed).
PLEASE NOTE: ALL MINI ENDURO RIDERS AND JUNIOR RIDERS IN THE FULL DUKES EVENT MUST BE ACCOMPANIED BY, AND SIGNED ON BY A PARENT OR GUARDIAN IF THEY ARE AGED UNDER 17 ON THE DAY OF THE RACE. PARENTS AND/OR GUARDIANS ARE NOT REQUIRED TO RACE THE TIMED STAGES. HOWEVER FOLLOWING THE TIMED STAGES PARENTS AND/OR GUARDIANS MUST RE-GROUP WITH THE MINI ENDURO RIDERS OR THE JUNIOR RIDERS IN THEIR CARE.
PLEASE NOTE: IN THE ADULT EVENTS, IF THERE ARE LESS THAN 5 RIDERS IN A CATEGORY THE CATEGORY WILL BE AUTOMATICALLY COMBINED WITH THE CLOSEST AGE CATEGORY.
