The Dunkeld Enduro is an annual event. Part of the Highland Perthshire Cycling Festival, it is open to mountain bike riders competing in technical downhill tracks.
Dirty cycling clothing can be laundered and dried if required. Just ask at the bar and we'll do the rest (but the ironing is up to you!).
Laundry & Drying Facilities for cyclists
We can store bikes in our locked out-buildings. These offer secure, dry storage for bikes. We have tools available for those needing repairs and we can assist with contacting local bike shops for spare parts.
Locked Bicycle Storage
Our location means we're close to Pitlochry and a good base from which to compete in the annual Etape Caledonia. This race is an extremely popular event and has over 5000 cyclists. Held in May each year, it offers the rider an 81 mile circular route on closed roads through awesome scenery. If you are interested in the Etape Caledonia weekend, book early as we fill up very fast. For the Etape Caledonia, we provide very early breakfast options.
Cycle Route 77 of the Sustrans National Cycle Network runs between Dundee and Pitlochry, via Perth. The route offers a mix of on-road cycling and quiet cycle paths. The overall route lets the cyclist experience some of the greatest scenery in Perthshire. The Bankfoot Inn lies on this route and offers a welcome stop for cyclists.

In May 2010, we were listed into the "Top 20 Cycle-friendly pubs in Britain" (The Times Online).
The Bankfoot Inn is a cycle friendly hotel, perfectly located for cyclists wishing to explore the great Perthshire countryside. We're on Route 77 and can cater for cyclists doing the end-to-end (Lands End to John O'Groats) journey. From our door, cyclists can cycle on many quiet, rural roads passing through some of the most magnificent countryside in Scotland. Perthshire is known as "Big Tree Country" and we have some of the biggest and oldest trees in Europe. From our door, cyclists can enjoy many great loops and circular routes.
