Merida Bikes MTB Marathons

edited April 2008 in MTB rides
Hello to you all, have recently got back into mountain biking and really enjoying it. Have an 08 Giant Trance 3, very nice for £1000(well less thanks to cyclescheme). Have decided that i would like to participate in the above events. Have put my name down to do all four(2 in Wales, Cumbria & Scotland). Are there like minded folk out there who have done these before, who could give me a lowdown of what to expect/what to take etc etc. Looking to do the 100km rides, and make a good weekend out of it(Friday to Monday).

Thanks in advance.

    have you sent off for their marothon guide? I got it yesterday and it's full of info about the rides they organise and what to expect. Oh, and Bicycle Chariot Racing!!!! :shock:

    Have a look at the webby too = Full of training/diet, etc info...

    Good luck and have fun :wink:
  • Yes i have the guide & i have looked on the website, but i was after people's experiences of the weekend, and little hints & tips to make it more enjoyable. Things to do on non riding days/places to visit in surrounding area.

    Thanks for replying though.
