Enduro riding, the Skedaddle Way!

Seeking out the best biking is what we’re all about and this year we’re excited to launch our range of Enduro holidays! Not quite sure what to expect? Here’s the low-down:

In a nutshell…

It’s not just about the ticking clock and the racing line; Enduro mountain biking has come to mean so much more. It’s about using our bikes to access remote and seldom visited trails in the mountains. It’s about having a laugh with your friends (old and new) on the way up and enjoying the view at the top. But foremost, it’s about seeking out and exploring the best technical biking opportunities, in inspiring wilderness areas. This is Enduro riding, the Skedaddle way!’ Matt Cain, Mountain Biking Product Manager
