Grinduro’s Art and Bike Exhibit is a curated display of some of the most interesting and elaborate works of art in cycling. We showcase the independent artisans and the iconoclasts who rarely get the spotlight at traditional trade shows and bike events.

2018 Featured Builders Presented by The Bicycle Academy:

In addition, The Bicycle Academy will be hosting a steel-brazing clinic, open to all Grinduro riders. You’ll get to wield a torch and take home your own unique creation.


In addition to the handmade bike exhibit, we’ll have work on display from some of our favorite artists, photographers and craftsmen. The Grinduro Art Exhibit is basically a curated collection of our favorite, mostly-bike-related things. It’s two parts handmade bicycle display, one part art exhibit, one part independent craft fair and one part bike shop.



We believe that bike riders’ health, attitude and performance is directly related to the foods that they eat, so we put Podium Catering in charge of breakfast, lunch and dinner on race day. They’re experts in feeding hungry bike racers.


Additional Eats:

There will also be food for sales onsite! NOTE: Only cash will be accepted!

On Friday:
Podium Catering will be offering a great dinner for £10.

On Saturday:
Friends and family will be able to purchase breakfast, lunch and dinner on site from Podium Catering while supplies last.

On Sunday:
Podium Catering will be offering breakfast for £6.


We like to party! Our 2018 entertainment will keep you busy into the wee hours.

On Saturday Scottish band, The Rebellion, will take the main stage. Inspired by many great artists and bands such as The Beatles, The Stones, The Redwalls, The Kinks, Guns n Roses and many more The Rebellions are an upbeat lively act not to be missed! Regi with his thumping bass lines and Dunga with his eye-opening fills which fit together perfectly! Then to add to the mix there is Keezys swaggering lead guitar riffs and solos while frontman and rhythm guitarist and songwriter Sydney delivers his words from the heart!

On Friday you’ll be treated to acoustic tunes from Danny Mooney followed by an open mic session. Hope there are a few brave souls willing to pick up the guitars or mic.

And of course, the Grinduro party isn’t complete with our Grinduro Scotland resident DJ, Tony Ferries. Be ready to boogie!

Location & Travel


The Isle of Arran is known as “Scotland in Miniature,” with more than 60 miles of rugged coastline, lowland marsh, soaring peaks, historic ruins and seemingly endless gravel roads. Arran has also become one of the UK’s major trail riding destinations, with trails ranging from steep and technical to fast and flowing. In other words, it’s the perfect location to host the Grinduro.
The Grinduro experience begins at the port of Ardrossan, which is close to major road networks and less than an hours drive from Glasgow. But why not leave the car at home? The port of Ardrossan is also easily accessible by train, with its own train station offering connections from Glasgow rail stations every hour. Glasgow also offers an international airport, making travels easy and stress-free if you’re coming from a distance.
Arran is only accessible by ferry and inclusive in the entry is return travel as a foot passenger and secure parking for your vehicle at the ferry terminal. Bikes and luggage will be transported by the event allowing you a relaxing sea crossing and a chance to ease in to the Grinduro weekend. When arriving on Arran you will be transported to the event village and reunited with your bike and bags.

We’re offering free camping at Grinduro Village in Lamlash, but if you’d rather stay in a hotel, you can find options here.

Grinduro Scotland is based in Lamlash, on the Isle of Arran. We’ll be surrounded by rugged mountains with outstanding coastal views. We like camping near beaches and mountains, and we thought you’d probably enjoy it too. So we’re offering free camping to Grinduro racers near the Grinduro Village. The camping is in close enough proximity to the event village for ease of access but far enough away you can still enjoy a peaceful night’s sleep. Make sure you pack everything you’d normally need for camping (tent, sleeping bag, sleeping pad, flashlights).

 There is also very limited parking w/o hook ups for camper vans. If you want camping with hook ups please contact Middletons Camping to book.
