FESTIVAL

A family-friendly international mountain bike festival event that’s bursting with big name cycling brands, activities, entertainment, street food, and fringe events around the Tweed Valley.

When you're taking a break from watching your hero's shredding and shralping down the EWS trails, we have the UK's biggest Race Festival of 2021 for you and your family to enjoy. 

The Festival Village is the hub of all Race Festival activity and right next to the Pro Stage.  Check out the brands, demo some bikes, then grab a beer in the Tempest Beer Tent and tuck into some local street food.

Get behind the scenes with the EWS teams, meet the riders and see the pros' bikes up close in the Race Paddock.

Film nights, ride outs, live music and much more - find out what else you can do around Innerleithen during event week at our Festival Fringe.
