Best UK Event, Show or Series – Singletrack Reader Awards 2017

by 0

Everyone’s favourite event is usually skewed by the events that they attended, by the events they did well at and by the events that had the best weather – or even the best bands. Here’s the events that have made it through to the final:

‘Ard Rock Enduro

A sell out event, this combines as-hard-as-you-want-it-to-be racing with an as-much-fun-as-you-want after party. Rub shoulders with the stars of enduro, race your mates, and try not to crash on camera. This is one of those events that manages to be serious enough to attract the racers, but fun enough to draw a crowd.

Bikes, and bands.

MTB Meetup

From small beginnings to over 1000 riders, this grass-roots and all-for-charity event has gained more and more fans over the years. With an emphasis on smaller independent traders for 2017, it retains a friendly festival feel despite its size. There’s oodles of bike riding, plenty of fun, and a lot of ‘don’t I know you on Twitter/from the forum?’.

Tweedlove Festival

With a huge demo day, races for every kind of bike and fun for every age of rider, there is something for everyone during the Tweedlove calendar. With the three big races of the Triple Crown, plus the Funduro, Natural Tweed, and many more, we couldn’t narrow this down to just one event, so the whole Festival is up for your vote.

Hannah Dobson

Hannah came to Singletrack having decided there must be more to life than meetings. Having worked in policy and project management roles at the Scottish Parliament and in local government, Hannah had organisational skills that SIngletrack needed. She also likes bikes, and likes to write.

Hannah likes all bikes, but especially unusual ones. If it’s a bit odd, or a bit niche, or made of metal, she’s probably going to get excited. If it gets her down some steep stuff, all the better. She’ll give most things a go once, she tries not to say no to anything on a bike, unless she really thinks it’s going to hurt. She’s pretty good with steri-strips.

More than bikes, Hannah likes what bikes do. She thinks that they link people and places; that cycling creates a connection between us and our environment; bikes create communities; deliver freedom; bring joy; and improve fitness. They're environmentally friendly and create friendly environments.

Hannah tries to write about all these things in the hope that others might discover the joy of bikes too.
