Less than 2 week to go to the 7th annual FoD Enduro.

September 23rd 2012 will see the 7th Forest of Dean Enduro at Pedalabikeaway, Cannop Valley, Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire GL16 7EH. Hosted by The Lions Club with the Royal Dean Forest Cycling Club.

Over an 8 mile course with classes for 1, 2 or 4 laps for individuals or teams of 4. Team riders will be set off at the same time, so can either ride together or race each other, with combined times deciding the winning teams.

The course comprises single track with some connecting fire road and the challenging sections have alternative routes for those not comfortable with the more extreme parts of the course.

This year’s course has been tweaked to avoid congestion on the first section of single-track and a new start / finish area will allow more spectators to show their support.

Chocolate Cup Cakes await the finishers. Water stops, breakdown cover, first aid and prizes for the various classes are provided.

All profits go to good causes in and around the Forest of Dean, including a significant donation to Dean Trail Volunteers who maintain the MTB trails in the Forest.

Last year an entry of 500 braved wet and muddy conditions and the entry list included a number of London 2012 Olympic contenders.

The event is sponsored by Pedalabikeaway where bike wash, shower and cafe facilities are available. Car parking is provided at Cannop and at Beechenhurst now linked to Cannop by a new bridge.

After 5 months of wet weather September must surely bring some sun!
