Video: What’s Enduro Mountain biking?

I feel like I woke up one day and everybody started calling this thing Mountain biking my friends and I have been enjoying for years “Enduro?” to try to make it sound cooler? I guess maybe?, so I got up with Enduro team Rudeboy from ColoRADo to poke fun at the whole over marking of the Whole thing and to remember have fun riding bikes and don’t get caught too much in the hype.

A big thanks to COMBA for making the trails we filmed on and Team Rudeboy for staring in the film. Kyle lofstedt, Cutis Cole, Reid Bokken and Adam Prosise.

Beer: Post Ride Partner Of The Week: Lord Nelson Three Sheets Pale Ale

Horatio Nelson, 1st Viscount Nelson, KB (29 September 1758 – 21 October 1805) was a British flag officer famous for his service in the Royal Navy, particularly during the Napoleonic Wars.

As he stood at the bridge of HMS Seahorse at the end of the in the Battle of Santa Cruz de Tenerife Lord Nelson dreamed of one day retiring from his sea battles to a more peaceful life of trail adventures and the simplicity of riding a mountain bike.

He also wanted to enjoy his post ride relaxation and thus created the Three Sheets Pale Ale in honour of the three things he loved the most: Mountain biking, trails, and beer. Created in the stern manner in which he commanded the Royal fleet this delicious ale delightfully balances malted scents with soft overtones of herbaceous hop characters, citrus flora’s and aromas.

In the dying moments of his life, Lord Nelson had just these few simple words, “Drink, drink. Ride, ride. Fun, fun.”. His historic words alone tell you the truth about a beer that is a prefect post ride partner.

Always drink the Three Sheets as Lord Nelson would, with your left arm.

Post Ride Partner of The Week: Coopers Celebration Ale

A post ride beer is sometimes more of a celebration than a reward and the Coopers Celebration Ale is the perfect drop to rejoice with.

Continuing Coopers’ tradition of bottle conditioning, the Celebration Ale lingers with the cloudy sediment of a fruity, yet smooth taste, and we found it the perfect accompaniment to those longer, tougher rides. It’s not an instant reward of cool refreshment that you might get from a lighter beer, but rather that more filling fulfilment. As with most good ales it’s also best served at a milder temperature, not from the freezing depths of an ice bucket.

It however isn’t to be taken lightly as the strong taste and over 5% alc. content can leave you a little light headed as you’re grasping for post ride refreshment. The Coopers Celebration Ale comes highly recommended, and tested
