As part of the Hargroves QE Cycle Fest the gravity-based “Day and night Enduro” returns by popular demand for the fourth year. After last year’s success the QECP Trail Collective has been working hard to make this year’s event even better. This year Exposure lights are the headline sponsor and will be on hand with a demo light hire service along with promoting their latest must have lighting system.
