The Fox Antifreeze is coming

Posted on: 11/01/2016 at 12:54pm

On Sunday 28th February 2016, Coed y Brenin will host the Fox Antifreeze.  The event is a winter timed lap endurance challenge that takes in a selection of the fine all weather trails of the Forest Park.

2015’s event was a huge success with 350 riders signing up to take on either 1, 2 or 3 laps of the challenging 11.5km all-weather course.

At Beics Brenin we are already preparing for the event, our first of 2016. Our bike care partners Muc-Off will again be in attendance again with their clean & lube station and some great deals on a range of Muc-Off products. We’ll also be holding our annual Winter sale with some great deals on clothing and accessories in store.

So even if February decides to throw the worst of it’s cold at us, you can expect a warm welcome from all involved.

The feedback from last year’s event was extremely positive with many praising the event’s friendly atmosphere and how relaxed the new staggered start format made the event so if you are looking for a way to chase away the chills of winter then this could be just the ticket…


Why not make Antifreeze your No 1.

af_lady_3If you’ve never tried your hand at an MTB endurance event before then the Antifreeze could be a great one to make your first. The staggered start format makes for a really relaxed style of event (think off road sportive) and allows riders to depart when they are ready along with their riding companions. You’ll find none of the pushing and jostling that can be a feature of mass start events and the fact that riders are spread out allows the organisers to plan a course with more quality singletrack, without the worry of bottlenecking.

The tree lined trails of Coed y Brenin Forest Park also offer a degree of protection from the worst of the winter weather so even if the weather isn’t kind to us, this protection, combined with the well constructed all weather trails of the park make this a very approachable winter event that will get your cycling season started on a positive note.

Even if you’re a seasoned MTB event participant this is a great way to kick off your cycling year so why not make the Fox Antifreeze your premier event of 2016.

Places are currently still available, you’ll find an entry link on the event web page over on the Dyfi Events website:
