After enjoying a successful summer, the Evans Ride It series is back, this time running the length of the winter months.

Running since March this year, the Ride It team researches riding areas, marks out four different routes and provides each rider with a Memory Map OS map to assist with navigation. All the riders need remember is to turn up!

“The format has been really popular during the summer with upwards of 300 riders taking part in the events,” explained Event Manager, Dean Stacey. “We’re expecting a big take up of the winter events as well”.

The Ride It series features two rides at each location, spread over a weekend, with a mountain bike ride on the Saturday and a sportive-style ride on the Sunday. The organisers are even offering free child entry, mechanical support during the ride as well as free energy food and drink.

The series is also an opportunity for participants to sample the latest bikes from Evans’ extensive range of mountain and road bikes.
