Animate Transcend

Animate Transcend

Sunday 9 June | 1.30pm – 3.30pm
Open to anyone aged 8 – 12 years


Create your own Dudes of Hazzard style animated MTB film intro or design, create and animate your own character and bring them to life in this two hour workshop, led by professional animator, Henry Cruickshank.

The workshop is fun, interactive, low pressure and suitable for all abilities.

Participants will learn basic (and not so basic, depending on experience) animation techniques and tricks to bring their ideas to life.

The finished films will all be available online to view and download after the festival.

Frog Bikes Demo Fun Loop

With every twist and turn there is another obstacle to conquer. Who knows what this loop is going to throw up next! So, grab your bike, or demo one, and experience our play park for two wheels.

Goe-Bike Family Ride supported by Frog Bikes

Sunday 9th June

Join hundreds of riders of all ages at our legendary annual event.  For 2019 we will make our way from Peebles along the Tweed Valley Railway Path, a picturesque route following the River Tweed for much of the way, finishing at the Transcend Festival village, outside Innerleithen.

Open to everyone, just bring a bike and join in the parade.


Sunday 9th June

Due to popular demand Enjoyro is returning to the calendar for 2019.  This will be the third year of our introductory-level enduro race, designed to provide a sweet way in to the joy of enduro racing.  A fun and (mostly) fear-free experience for the enduro-curious, younger riders – or just those who want to spend some more time exploring the festival delights!
