Race. Learn. Explore!

A trip that includes free entry into Europe’s most exciting Enduro event – the Scottish leg of the Bluegrass Enduro Tour (15th and 16th June 2013).

The adventure begins in Kinlochleven, home to No Fuss Events iconic big mountain adventure races and The Dudes of Hazzard ‘This is Enduro Now’. The Enduro Adventure Scotland guarantees two incredible days of racing and five more days exploring Scotland’s epic big mountain riding plus world-class Enduro coaching from Dirt School (whose director Chris Ball is one of the brains behind the Enduro World Series).

The Enduro Adventure is exclusively for Bluegrass racers: working closely with the event’s organisers, we’ve taken the best rides from two of our most iconic mountain biking adventures: the Heights of Kinlochleven™ and Torrid Affair™ tours – and given them the Bluegrass twist! And with expert coaching delivered by the best in the business you’ll be leaving Scotland all set to tear the competition apart on your next enduro race.

What can you expect from the riding? Put it this way, if you can handle big mountain ascents and the occasional hike-a-bike knowing you will earn the country’s most exciting technical enduro-style descents, then the Kinlochleven area will feel like mountain biking heaven.

Just as you’re falling under the spell of Kinlochleven we up the tempo – it’s time to embark on a ‘Torrid Affair’ and enter a place that leaves everyone (and we mean everyone!) awestruck…no matter how often we ride in this remote corner of Scotland the sheer scale of the mountains and the beckoning quality of the trails never fails to captivate as we unload the bikes and take our first tentative pedal strokes deep into this magical wilderness. Big climbs, insane descents, you’ll see what we mean.

On the Enduro Adventure Scotland, every sense, every muscle, every skill in your enduro armoury will be challenged and rewarded in equal measure. We see it as a truly must ride trip.

And as if the opportunity to ride these remote wilderness trails wasn’t reward enough, we’ll sample the (whisky and…) trails on the Isle of Skye and take on the might of the rugged Cuillin mountains. On a trip that keeps on giving, we’ll hop on our private boat to access Scotland’s remotest ride, and spend a night within Scotland’s last great wilderness – The Rough Bounds.

    This trip sounds proper epic. And I thought the decent from the other side of the Devil’s Staircase was gnarly… Whereabouts is that top shot taken?
