Fair City Enduro – this Saturday!!

Get your names down for this…

This was my first enduro & I would recommend it to anyone that’s had doubts on whether or not to race. This will get you hooked! It’s a super fun event whether your a keen a racer or out for a laugh.

Everyone rides the course blind, there is no practice… I remember this being pretty scary, what if there’s a 7 foot drop?! There wont be…if in doubt roll it out… most in the club will manage these trails. At the end of the day, it’s how fast you take that risk 🙂 it’s very addictive. Just go for it!

I’ll be heading over & if the terms and conditions are concrete you could be chasing a flamingo through the woods…

Someone recommended a physio for cyclists on one of the local rides a wee while ago. I think the physio was linked to a triathlon club. Looking to get hooked up for advice on shoulder injury.

Any recommendations welcome.
