Dyfi Enduro Entries Out On Sunday

by 0

The Umpteenth running of the Howies Dyfi Enduro will take place this year on the first May Bank Holiday weekend and will see hundreds (we saw number plates in the 800s last year) of riders turn up to take part in the official kick off of the cycling season.

Rampaging through the town is always a good way to start

The event will be on Sunday May 4th, rolling out of town in a mass peloton again. Entries go live on the website: http://www.summitcycles.co.uk/enduro/ at 6pm this Sunday night (Feb 9th). Last year’s event sold out in about 20 minutes, so don’t delay if you’re thinking of doing it.

If you needed more reasons to come out, the town of Machynnleth that weekend will also play host to the Machynlleth Comedy Festival, which takes place in venues around this friendly small Welsh town over the bank holiday weekend. Why not come down for the whole shebang, camp or B&B it and enjoy some humour with your bike riding?

It’s always sunny, right?

Remember… entries are out on Sunday tea time. Don’t miss out! And we’ll see you there for Singletrack’s traditional outing to the westest west.

Chipps wasn’t around for the dawn of mountain biking in the UK, but he likes to claim that he arrived in time for second breakfast (about the time he shows up for work, then…) starting in the bike trade in 1990 and becoming a full time mountain bike journalist at the start of 1994. Over the subsequent quarter century, he has seen mountain bike culture flourish and diversify and bike technology go from rigid steel frames to fully suspended carbon fibre (and sometimes back to rigid steel as well.)

His riding style is best described as ‘medium, wheels on the ground, trail riding’ though he’s been spotted doing everything from endurance downhill racing to 24 hour cross country racing. He favours mid-travel trail bikes and claims to be wheel-size, gear, brake and tyre agnostic. In fact, his garage spans most bicycle flavours, taking in steel hardtails, carbon trail bikes, even a mountain bike tandem, along with road, touring and gravel/cyclocross bikes.

While he’s happy to chat about bikes all day, his real interest is in the people and places that bikes can introduce you to and he talks as fondly about the trails he’s ridden and riders he’s met as the bikes that took him there.
