Pitfichie Local Enduro 2018.

What’s at Pitfichie?
Pitfichie is one of the very few places in the north-east of Scotland which has had mountain bike trails professionally developed and maintained by Forestry Commission Scotland. Pitfichie’s trails lead through varied forest and across open hill tops, with fabulous views of the Vale of Alford and Bennachie. There are two way marked cross country trails, an epic downhill course and a host of other informal trails, a combination of which will be used for the event route. Last year the Scottish Enduro Series (SES) came to Pitfichie and many who came were calling it the best event race out the six which took place across the year.

Will the event be run out of Monymusk?
The event village will be based just north of Monymusk in the ‘Clyans’ field. This has plenty of parking for cars and vans and is located on the left hand side of the road leading from the village, just beyond the small building housing a telephone exchange, coordinates (57.230642, -2.529380). It will be well signed on the day.
