With the North Shore Enduro being held on the same weekend as the Steed Pretty & Gritty ride, it was all about Enduro in our 3rd ride of the season on May 9th. We had a small but keen group ready to pre-ride the course. Since the ride last month featured stages 2 and 4, we focused on stages 1 and 3. The first stage was a long and very physical run down Corkscrew, Salvation, Pingu, and Pangor, while stage 3 showcased the bottom of Forever After, into the Highschool League downhill, and finishing on Hyannis. Pretty & Gritty riders rocked it, sessioning the drops, pumping the bike through the flow and choosing their lines on fast corners.
Sunday, Pretty & Gritty riders were out in full force racing and volunteering at the event. It was so great to see so many people out there, participating, cheering, and volunteering. Congratulations to Jess for an outstanding ride, and thanks to Lisa and Esther for volunteering! Even if you think that racing isn’t up your alley, participating in an enduro can be a great way to ride with your friends, see new trails, and push yourself that little bit harder to succeed at something you never thought was possible!
Thanks again to Race Face for donating this month’s prizes. The lucky contest winners were Rhonna for the stylish Khyber Jersey and Erin for the awesome, water repellent and bright Khyber shorts.
NEXT MONTH’S RIDE: Mark your calendars for June 14th. We’re staying local and it’s going to be a blast! Stay tuned for more info.
