Brass Monkeys is the massively popular Mountain Bike Enduro Series headline sponsored by Merida Bikes. Hundreds of riders enjoy our well established  venues with carefully prepared courses that go through heath and pine woodland with flowing and testing singletrack mixed in with swooping trails and stone fire roads that wind through the wonderful Hampshire and Surrey countryside.

All you need to do is choose how long you want to ride for, and then do as many laps as you can in that time, including finishing the lap that you are on when your time is up.

Male riders aged 18-50 and female riders aged 18+ can choose to ride for 2hrs or 4hrs, whilst any male riders aged 50+ do 3hrs and male and female riders aged 14-17 do 2hrs. As well as each event being a stand alone race with trophies, it’s also a round of the Series, for which you need to ride and get points in every round to be in contention. There’ll be podium presentations of trophies as soon as possible after the end of each category, plus Series trophies and prizes at the last round too.  Single speed riders should enter the 4 hour Single Speed  category to be in contention for the Series Single Speed plate, but their entry will also be moved to their appropriate 4 hour category for which they will also be in contention.

Thanks to our generous sponsors a large number of spot prizes are also given out during the Series.
