Hairy Coo is hosted by Comrie Croft Hostel which has its own network of handmade trails in the surrounding hills. The mountain biking experience at Comrie Croft has now been greatly enhanced by the addition of a Skills Park where riders can jump and pump to their hearts' content without having to slog up the hill!

When completely exhausted they can rest their wheels at the new Tea Garden cafe!

The day offers a chance for riders of all ages and abilities to enjoy going as fast as they can!

This year the racing is on the second Saturday, with 3 start times on the programme. First up, the Wee Race, an hour long blast on a course that’s FUN but not too demanding. Next is the Bairns’ Race, where the youngsters get an hour to enjoy themselves on a trimmed down version of the Wee Race course.

Finally, the BIG Race, which is a test of fitness, speed and skill around a tough track.

The winning male and female riders in the Big Race receive bespoke trophies made by Jane Drysdale of Carnelian Crafts, plus some cash. There are many other prizes throughout all the races.

The races involve riding off-road on variable surfaces with some steep sections (although the Wee and Bairns races are gentler). It is an independent event with full insurance and first aid cover. No race license is required but a hard shell helmet is obligatory - please ensure that your straps are correctly adjusted; also make sure that your handlebars have plugs in the ends. No helmet, no start.
