So in the UK, well Wales to be precise, we have some great trails and recently there was an event called the Howies Coed-y-Brenin Enduro. A 60km enduro event. 600 riders blasting round a mix of double track, singletrack and what can only be described as bog. I should mention that Coed-y-Brenin is a dedicated trail centre with loads of cycle only singletrack which is clearly marked. There's also loads of mixed use trails in the area as well.

This was a really fun event. It's the first time I've done something like this and I certainly didn't have the perfect bike for the day but you ride what you've got so I got on with it. It's a single loop course rather than laps with marshals. There's signs etc to make it easy to navigate. All in all great fun.

Check out the film we put together...

If you want to know what the event was like in more detail there's a blog as well. You can find that here...
