Dyfi Enduro – What am I letting myself in for?
As you may know, I’ve already posted a blog entry here asking what I was letting myself in for with the Mawddach Goldrush mountain bike ‘race’. That post has received a few comments and has been making me look forward to the event in a couple of weeks time, even if it is with a little trepidation.
The big local mountain-biking event around here is the Dyfi Enduro, a ‘non-competitive long distance mountain bike challenge’ around the Dyfi Forest. Most of the people I cycle with enter it and it is almost compulsory for locals, but I hadn’t quite decided if I was up to it or not. My plan was to see how I enjoyed the Mawddach Goldrush and then make a decision based on that.
However. entries have now opened for the Dyfi Enduro and rather than miss out, I’ve already booked my entry! The number of rides is limited to 650 and they tend to sell out fast so if you’re a glutton for punishment and fancy joining me then you’d better sign up soon.
Guess I’d better start getting in some training with some longer rides just to make sure I can go the distance.
