This weekend sees the return of the Singletrack Weekender mountain bike event at Lee Quarry trails in Rossendale. The event is in it's third year and is organised by Singletrack Magazine who this year Shimano as their main sponsor! The race takes place over the weekend with three MTB disciplines that are to be ridden on one bike, the disciplines are Downhill, Trials (old skool) and Cross Country. The Saturday will see the Downhill and Trials events followed by the Cross Country race on the Sunday.
Unfortunately, I will not be at the event this year due to work commitments but look out for my friends Matt and Elaine from Marmalades Bed & Breakfast based in Stackstead (just minutes from the trails!). Matt will be competing in the event while Elaine will be dishing out some cake samples that are all available at their guest house. I had the chance to call in to see how the guest house was looking earlier this week and it looks fantastic, the rooms are spacious with all the mod cons as well as a really cool guest chill out lounge where you can tell all your tall riding tales around an open fireplace.
If you are planning on a visit to the Lee Quarry trails or just fancy a weeekend away give Elaine or Matt a call and get yourself booked in for a weekend of riding, relaxing and eating cake!
