Howies Dyfi Enduro

Offroad Endurance , Machynlleth – Sunday, 03 May 2015

Event Summary

Event Overview

Welcome to the howies Dyfi Enduro. This year the event will be held on Sunday May 3rd.

The event, now in its fourteenth year is a simple big loop, starting in Machynlleth town centre, which heads out of town on back lanes for a tour of the Dyfi forests best hidden trails. It has long nasty fire road climbs, and long rough technical descents, it finishes deep in the forest, riders then spin back into town on lanes to event HQ for (hopefully) a prize and a coveted finisher’s mug.  Total distance will be around 60km, with around 1900m of ascent, though this is subject to final route tweaking in the weeks before the event. 

It’s a non-competitive ride, as in we don’t award for first place, but whether you want to try work over Nick Craig (who says it’s his best event of the season) or just want to get back before the bar runs dry we guarantee you’ll have a good day, though you will have to suffer for it.

The first 300 riders through will take a slightly longer, slightly more arduous route, to even out the finish times a little. We will again be separating times and routes, so you will be able to see which route you did, and how long it took. Sorry, its only open for the first 300 riders because if everyone did it we would be on course all night. 

We have a feed station at around 35km, which will have flapjack, bananas, sausage rolls, energy drink and water.
