There’s always a buzz about the office at this time of year, and not just because Christmas is coming. For us, December not only marks the end of the year, but gets us ready for another exciting year of going nice places and doing good things. We get to take a look at our calendars, a blank canvas of potential, and fill it with all kinds of adventurous proposals.
Last week saw ticket sales open for some amazing events that we are lucky enough to be attending in 2018, as well as the announcement of something really special (read on to find out). There are also more tickets going on sale before the year is out, so here’s a taste of what’s to come next year... including tickets that have already been released and a couple you’ll need to keep one eye open for!
Spread out across 2018, choose from four epic events in four prime mountain bike locations, MTB Marathon is one of many that we’re seriously looking forward to. 'But why do you love it so much?' you ask... Well, it quite simply offers something for everyone: skills courses for the kids, womens-only rider meet-ups, night rides, family ‘mini’ marathons, half marathons and - if you’re really up for a challenge - the epic full marathon: 70km of gruelling climbs and technical descents, not for the faint of heart. There’s also on-site camping, which creates a fantastic atmosphere of like-minded MTB maniacs, so if you think you’re one of them, this is a highly recommended event to get yourself to. Tickets are available on their website;as always, we recommend you book as early as possible!
This is just the tip of the iceberg for Alpkit’s 2018 calendar of going nice places and doing good things, so keep an eye on our events page for a full list of where to find us, and we hope to see you somewhere next year!
