If you’re a mountain biker, Mountain Mayhem is a challenge that you need to try, and with so much to do for all the family, you’ve got no excuse to not come along.

Singletrackworld recently asked organiser Pat Adams, what makes Mountain Mayhem so special? He said:

“Our aim is to make all our competitors feel like they’ve achieved something. In a world where you can spend hours sitting in front of a computer, and you can ride a whole virtual Tour de France on a turbo trainer in your front room, there’s still room for a real challenge.”

We couldn’t have said it better ourselves. See you there!

Mountain Mayhem takes place 17th – 19th June 2016 at Gatcombe Park, Gloucestershire.
