Next event will be on 19th September at the Tunbridge Wells site. Will be a different track layout to other events, with new easy hard routes.

See you there..

Be sure to book your place(s) in advance, that way you get to ride, and so do we!! We had a very poor entry to the 29th August event, and had to cancel. Hope this was just down to it being the end of the school holidays, and the bank holiday ( got to give some time to the family i suppose, can't ride all the time!!!)

The dust was bad, but hey, you can't controll all the factors, these are practice days, so you can "come off the gas", and let the dust settle!!

We're always changing the track, and like to make sure there is as much variety as the land permits..

We're working on adding some new sites for next year, so keep an eye out for details..

I agree the track is suited to trails bikes and pit bikes. But its too much money for such a poor track. When I went lots of peple were moaning about the dust and the price. Sevenoaks track is much better

The track has plenty of variety, and suits all bikes, bike control plays a part here, anyone can twist the throttle on straight!
As for the price, if you think £35 is too much for a days riding, then don't come! ( We have to provide a safe environment, and rent the land, which all comes at a premium!)
The dust was bad, but you should have seen the dust on the Welsh 2 Day this year, made the event you are talking about look like a hazey summers day! Try doing 50+ on a fire track with no vis... scarey!! ( and in a race where rolling of the throttle so you can see is not always what you want to do!! )

Agreed that the terrain at Sevenoaks gives more variety, but we won't be back there until next season, as the land owner gives exclusive use to the shoot at this time of year.

35 quid is great value in my opinion
good on you for all your hard work i am looking forward to trying out astra146 enduro practice day as its going to be cheap and fast
i dont think that 35 pounds is a lot to pay and i appreciate the hard work you have put into this
thumbs up and keep it up

What revs / conditions is that measured at?
This is measured at standstill, around 1/2 throttle as a guide, from a distance of around 100cm. 94db is the standard for all new bikes these days. ( both enduro and mx ), and has been for a few years. If the bike is older with a standard can, then normally re-wadding the exhaust will bring the nosie levels back to within limits.

The guys at endurokent put on good events, the price is fair and the events well organised. However, i'm not riding, why? There is a round of the SEEC at Canada Heights, Swanley on the 19th.

Cheers for the support guys, nice to know what we do is appreciated.
Finding land and providing events is not as easy as it might appear. We do try to put an event on that we would want to attend, as well as providing for all other rider abilites. We should be back at Sevenoaks next season, and we hope to have at least 1 or 2 new sites for next year. Will keep you posted.
