Enduro isn't just a lifestyle or a hashtag on Instagram. It's a real way to ride bikes fast, but conveniently, with friends. Let's dive in.
Starting in May, Thursday nights are dedicated to our FUNduro MTB Series, rolling from City Built Brewing at 6:30. Enduro racing is a series of timed segments with check points that you need to reach in between, but with only so much time to get there. These segments, or stages if you're really into enduro (and you look like you are), are either transfer stages or timed, with your timed stages adding up to a total time, and transfer stages not affecting your total as long as you arrive inside of the allotted time.
So here's how we'll do it. We BUST from City Built (try to the Fresh Ass Salad when we get back) at 6:30, with 30 minutes transfer time to get to Richmond Park Flow Trail. You can do it pretty easily, it's not that far. Then, we'll do two timed stages, both of the Flow Trail, before meeting up and heading back to City Built, which will count as the final transfer stage. We'll have MAJOR AWARDS for first, second, third and DFL, of course. The winners will live with glory forever, and get a taco from City Built. So, really, pretty good incentive to send it.
Win once? Good. Twice? Impressive. Win the most this May and you'll be crowned King (or Queen) for the month by hitting all the events! We will not make our King and Queen dance slowly around the bar listening to Endless Love.
