The Enduros are Coming & Cockhill DH Opening

Published on: Jun 07 2013 by Jon Swift

ArdRockWe've got a number of exciting new events coming across the patch in the near future. The first one is the 'Ard Rock Enduro in North Yorkshire on the 29th and 30th of June in Swaledale. Combined mountain bike Enduro and All-Mountain sportive in the stunning Yorkshire Dales National Park. The exclusive route takes in 100% natural rocky descents incorporated into a big day out in the Dales. One off access to private land means 'Ard Rock Enduro takes in gnarly, rock strewn terrain only rideable in their event. Chip timing system provided by industry leaders SportIdent. There will also be camping, a BBQ, beer and spot prizes from event sponsors Santa Cruz, Hope and Mavic.

WildCampFollowing on from that we have Dirt-Trax bank holiday wild camp at Cockhill woods across the weekend of the 23rd to 25th of August.

Your first chance to come and ride the new DH trails, camp on site, ride the trails from your tent, gorge yourself on roasted pig on the Friday and Saturday and get to meet the guys who've put their money and effort into the trails. Prices range from £ 15 for a day pass to ride the trails including one hog roast dinner (and an additional free day pass to ride the trails later) to a mere £ 48 for the privilege of spending the whole weekend on site, 2 pig roasts and 50% of an annual membership.

All proceeds go back into the trails and help to cover the already significant outlay the trail builders have made from their own pockets. For more info and to buy tickets up front go to their Facebook eventpage.

EscapeBikesNext up we have another new event, Escape to Gisburn Enduro on the 29th of September. A 1 day event with 3 stages taking in some of the best singletrack descents in Gisburn including Homebaked, Swoopy and a brand new section just fro the event.

Overnight camping will be available on the Saturday at a cost of £ 7.50 per vehicle / tent. With a BBQ planned for Saturday and Sunday this should be a cracking event in the heart of Gisburn Forest.
