Our very busy Arapuke summer event calendar concluded on Sunday with the summer’s 2nd Central Bicycle Studio’s Arapuke Enduro. As for all of our events this summer, the weather couldn’t have been better. A few showers of rain on Friday morning were perfectly timed to put some moisture into the trails, ensuring they were as fast as they are likely to get. We had another full field with the Army joining us for the Enduro leg of their Inter-Regional MTB Champs. Category Winners and the Overall fastest times on both the Hard and Easy courses were;
