If you spend your autumn months pining for the camaraderie and hilltop fun that the spring and summer gave you, then help is at hand.
Joe Hayward and the people that brought you the Howies Dyfi Enduro for the last ten years (as featured in Singletrack Issue 66) are organising an event of similarly huge scale around the trails and hillsides of Coed Y Brenin in North Wales. The non-timed event will take place on Sunday October 2nd and take in some popular and some barely known trails around the huge woods of Coed Y Brenin. If you think you’ve ‘done’ the trails there, then you’ve not seen some of the new stuff. We’ll have a web feature on some of them in the near future, but in the meantime, this’ll be your best chance of seeing what they’ve been up to there for the last couple of years…
Needless to say, the Dyfi Enduro crew will have their usual great feed stations, two route lengths (30 and 60km) to choose from and a lot of the individual touches that make their spring event so good. The first 400 entrants even get a free mug… Anyway, for more details, head on over to: Summit Cycles’ website We’ll be keeping you informed about the event as time goes on and we’re also going to be providing some sweet Singletrack prizes – which everyone gets a chance of winning. Although you’ll get a time for your ride, there’s no prize for being the fastest. Prizes are handed out at random, so everyone has an equal chance of winning.
