Wow! If you’re planning on taking your buzzword riding seriously things are getting pretty real, and the just announced five event Canterbury Enduro Series is going to add a few more dates to your calendar. Now, a little word to the wise here, you may want to keep March pretty free. Not only are the Craigieburn trails pretty much the best pieces of singletrack this country has to offer, but there’s also another event in the South Island at around the same time.
All the Bikery/Bikecycle and Gravity Canterbury Enduro Series details are below and you can follow their Facebook page for more info.
