Mountain Bikers from all over the U.K have successfully raised £1,500 for the Welsh Air Ambulance Service by participating in the second annual Brechfa Team Enduro event, organised by the Brechfa Bike Club in association with FC Wales.
The 110 riders who entered the event tackled a loop through the Forestry Commission Wales managed Brechfa Forest in order to raise money for the Air Ambulance charity, which provides a life saving service to many people in rural areas of Wales.
The course saw teams of two or more ride deep into Brechfa forest following the Gorlech trail and the new Raven trail before crossing the line at the Abergorlech Forest Car Park – with the fastest recorded time for the 31 mile loop coming in at just under 3 hours.
After this year’s success, it is likely the event will be repeated next year.
